Abstract

Abstract copyright UK Data Service and data collection copyright owner.

The Opinions and Lifestyle Survey, Well-Being Module, April-May 2015: Unrestricted Access Teaching Dataset is based on the Opinions and Lifestyle Survey, Well-Being Module, January, February, April and May, 2015 (available from UK Data Archive under SN 7815) 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 data from April-May 2015 only;
  • the number of variables has been reduced;
  • a reduced user guide with codebook is provided;
  • some variables have been recoded due to concerns about statistical disclosure;
Further information is available in the study documentation (below) which includes a user guide.

For the second edition (August 2016) a new weighting variable has been added to the data and the user guide has been updated accordingly.
Main Topics:
The Well-Being Module, (Module MCZ), was originally asked on behalf of ONS and respondents were enquired of their well-being, rating it on a scale of 0-10, where 0 is generally low and 10 high.

The main topics covered by this teaching dataset are:
  • life satisfaction;
  • emotional states;
  • employment;
  • socio-demographics.
