Dear Sir/Madame,

I'm writing you about the data 6676 "Understanding Society: Waves 1-4, 2009-2013: Secure Access", which provides access to both partners' exact date of birth and information on relationship duration/divorce. I'd like to know if you could merge data for me so that I do not need the secure access.

I know that access to these data would be provided only through secure access. I attended the training in 2015 as I accessed these data in 2015 (research n. 82430). Evidence from that research suggests that astrological signs are correlated with marriage decisions (we are still finalising the paper) and I'd like to explore further this idea.

To do this, I'd need to compute a set of astrological variables which depend on both partners' exact date of birth. I would like to know if you could provide me the list of all partners' dates of birth with an id. I can then compute the astrological variables of interest (I have a computer programmer who needs to run his code to produce this output). And, if possible, I'd like you to merge the output data produced by my programmer using the id and share with me only the output data for each id without the exact date of birth.

Please let me know if this is feasible and, if it is, which documentation I should submit.

Please do let me know if you need further details about the project.

Thank you for your help,
Best wishes
