This webinar is jointly organised by CLOSER and the UK Data Service as part of the ESRC-funded data resources' collaborative webinar series, ESRC data resources: discovering data and how to use it.
The webinar is for those who would like to know more about sources of data available for investigating obesity. It will focus particularly on longitudinal, cross-sectional and consumer data.
The session will explore:
The range of longitudinal data available, including an example of how researchers can utilise harmonised data, such as the CLOSER-funded set of harmonised BMI measures, for cross-study investigations
The use of cross-sectional data sources currently available from the UK Data Service
The value of using consumer data
The first 45 minutes of the webinar will be devoted to presentations from Prof Rebecca Hardy (UCL), Dr Vanessa Higgins (UK Data Service), and Dr Michelle Morris (Consumer Data Research Centre) followed by 15 minutes of Q&A.
