The Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) has commissioned a review of the impact of its data infrastructure investments, including several CLOSER partners:
- Centre for Longitudinal Studies (and the four cohorts it manages: 1958 National Child Development Study, 1970 British Cohort Study, Next Steps, Millennium Cohort Study)
- Understanding Society
- UK Data Service
If you use data from any of the above sources in your work, please take a few minutes to complete an online survey about the impact and importance of these resources for your research.
Your responses will be used to help secure future funding for ESRC data infrastructure. The findings and recommendations of this review will be shared with the ESRC’s ongoing Longitudinal Studies Review, so it is important that they receive a strong response from the longitudinal community.
Online survey – deadline 17 March 2017
Access the survey here: https://www.surveygizmo.eu/s3/90020383/ESRC-Impact-and-Reach-Review
The online survey asks about your role, the way you use data, and what you believe are its impact or effects on your work and organisation.
The survey takes about 10-15 minutes. By taking part, you will be entered into a prize draw for 3x £50 Amazon vouchers.
The responses you will provide are key to securing future funding for the ESRC data infrastructure including CLS and the cohort studies. The data collected in the survey will be used to produce a report describing the impact and reach of these investments.
The review is being carried out by Research Consulting on behalf of the ESRC.
