Abstract

Abstract copyright UK Data Service and data collection copyright owner.

The Quarterly Labour Force Survey, January - March, 2011: Unrestricted Access Teaching Dataset is based on the Quarterly Labour Force Survey, January-March 2011 (see SN 6782) and constitutes real data which are used by government, business and other organisations. The teaching dataset is a subset which has been subjected to certain simplifications and additions for the purpose of learning and teaching.
  • The main differences are:
  • the teaching dataset contains a 30% random sample of the main QLFS sample aged 16 years and over;
  • the number of variables has been reduced;
  • a reduced user guide with codebook is provided
  • some variables have been recoded and their level of detail reduced for the teaching dataset.
Further information is available in the study documentation (see below).
Main Topics:
Work-related variables include economic activity, employment status, full or part-time work and hours worked. Socio-demographic variables are also included.
