The focus of these workshops is to assist users of the data, those considering becoming users, or those who are interested in learning more about LSAC data, to gain confidence in understanding and navigating the LSAC datasets.
These Workshops will cover the following topics:
- Study methodology
- Introduction to the LSAC datasets
- Data analysis issues (ie Confidentialisation, weighting, clustering etc.)
- Variable naming
- User resources (including data dictionary)
- Specific item problems (e.g. educational program, parental height)
- Outcome Index
- Time Use Diary
The needs of the registrants for our workshops will be taken into account, where possible, in designing the program. We are investigating the use of computer labs and also the feasibility of running some parallel sessions for new and more experienced researchers.
If you are interested in attending our workshops, please contact the LSAC Team to be placed on a waiting list for future programs.
