Description

Dear Understanding Society team,

I am interested in participants' health status around the time of the Understanding Society waves 4 and 10.
There are several questions about health status included in the (main) questionnaire, but I am wondering if I could also make use of administrative health records (of course following a procedure of requesting data access).

On your participants page I find information suggesting that you do, see e.g. [[https://www.understandingsociety.ac.uk/participants/health-records]].
However, I cannot find further information on this on the pages meant for researchers such as [[https://www.understandingsociety.ac.uk/documentation/linked-data]].
I hope you can clarify what are the possibilities for researchers to work with health admin data.

Best wishes,

Lieke
