Abstract

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.

The main differences are:
  • the number of variables has been reduced
  • a reduced User Guide with codebook is provided
  • some variables have been recoded to reduce the level of detail
Further information is available in the study documentation (see 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:
Topics covered include: total expenditure; household income; socio-economic status; and household characteristics.
