Linking our Lives: England and Wales since 1971 is a podcast showcasing research that uses a study of a million people to look at some of the major social issues of the last 50 years.
We talk with researchers working with data from the ONS Longitudinal Study
, which is based on the Census and officially the largest nationally representative longitudinal dataset in the UK.
In conversations of 20-25 minutes, we discover how researchers are making use of data collected from people in England and Wales every 10 years since 1971, what they have found and what it means for policy, practice and society.
Produced by the ESRC funded Centre for Longitudinal Study Information & User Support
(CeLSIUS) project team at UCL and presented by former BBC editor Chris Garrington, the podcast shows the impact of the ONS Longitudinal Study and provides insights into how others might tap into this fantastic resource.
