Downloadable data from the ONS Longitudinal Study

Downloadable datasets for analysis - these are extracts from the main LS database. Four are currently available; their topics are ethnicity, limiting long term illness, survival and regional differences. Exercises are available for each one, or you can just explore them.


Downloadable tables are cross-tabulations of LS data on various research topics. Each topic has research questions, notes on the data analysis and key findings, as well as the tables themselves. The tables are offered as downloadable Excel spreadsheets as well as in HTML format. Seven topics are currently offered.
What could I do with them?


Downloadable single tables are intended for potential users of the Longitudinal Study who want to check whether there will be a sufficient number of cases for their project. Please contact us if you have suggestions for additions to the list.
