Description

I am trying to create synthetic households by LSOA for the UK population for health modelling. I have data on household composition by LSOA (eg. couple, single, multiperson: students etc.), but at this stage I am unable to find data indicating the age distribution of these individuals (eg. The age of the respondent + their partner's age + (if applicable) the age of their children).

Would this be possible using the Understanding Society Data? Would I need a special license version? Would it be practical to scale this data up to the general population?

Thanks,
Andrew
