Abstract copyright UK Data Service and data collection copyright owner.The Living Costs and Food Survey, 2013: Unrestricted Access Teaching Dataset is based on the Living Costs and Food Survey, 2013 (LCF), available from the UK Data Archive under SN 7702, 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.
