Abstract

Abstract copyright UK Data Service and data collection copyright owner.

The Quarterly Labour Force Survey October - December 2012: Teaching Dataset is based on the Quarterly Labour Force Survey, October - December, 2012 (QLFS OD12) (available from the UK Data Archive under SN 7220) and constitutes real data which are used by the government and are behind many headlines. The teaching dataset contains fewer variables and has been subjected to certain simplifications and additions for the purpose of learning and teaching.

The main differences are:
  • the number of variables has been reduced;
  • extra variables (based on variables from the original QLFS OD12 dataset) have been added, including a weight for which mean=1;
  • a reduced codebook is provided.
Further information is available in the study documentation (below) which includes a dataset user guide.

Main Topics:
The main topics covered are: socio-demographics, employment, housing tenure, education, health.
