This will be followed by talks about the decennial censuses which have included optional questions on religion since 2001 (and for a longer period in Northern Ireland). Dr Aly Sizer, UCL, and Dr Tom Clemens, University of Edinburgh, will present on the ONS Longitudinal Study and the Scottish Longitudinal Study respectively, explaining:
what questions were asked, and what data they have produced
how researchers can use and access the data
how religion changes over time for individuals, and other areas that researchers have studied
The webinar will consist of 45 minutes of presentations and 15 minutes for questions.
The webinar is suitable for both new and experienced researchers but please note that the census data discussed in the second part of the webinar are accessed via a safe room and are only available to researchers based in the UK.
