Description

Hi, we are interested in using individual records of surveys from 2010-2019 for modelling purpose. I realise that there are values for LSOAs, but am very keen to know whether it is possible to request anonymised individual records for some regions to improve the model accurancy.

Best regards, Weigang Yan

Hello,

This is a household longitudinal survey where individuals are interviewed repeatedly (at one year intervals) and some information is also collected about the household. So, the survey deta includes responses from individual and household interviews. As information is also collected about the addresses these are used to link to various geographies such as the LSOA. THe individual survey data and the LSOA or MSOA etc of where they live are released as separate datasets. Thse can be linked using household identifiers. But please note that any identifying information about individuals such as their names, addresses are never released. To know more about the survey please take a look at the user guide.
