I am a MSc student at the United Nations University / Maastricht University completing my thesis using UKHLS data. Specifically, I am using the safeguarded version (that which is provided under the UK Data Service’s End User Licence, and doesn't include detailed geographical information etc.)
Alongside the submission of our thesis, we are required to upload all the data and code we used to a dedicated data repository. We can, if this is not possible, apply for a waiver.
I would greatly appreciate it if someone is able to inform me as to whether I am allowed to share this data, or if this is not allowed.

Thanks for your query.
You are not allowed to upload or share the data. If anyone wants to use the data, they will have to apply for the data via the UKDS: https://www.understandingsociety.ac.uk/documentation/access-data
