Abstract

Abstract copyright UK Data Service and data collection copyright owner.

The ONS Opinions Survey, Well-Being Module, April 2011: Unrestricted Access Teaching Dataset is based on the ONS Opinions Survey, Well-Being Module, April, June, July, August and September 2011 (available from the UK Data Archive under SN 6893) 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 2011 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.
Main Topics:
Well-Being (Module MCZ): this module was originally asked on behalf of ONS and questions ask respondents to rate their well-being on a scale of 0-10, where 0 is generally low and 10 high.
