Any government organisation, academic institution or charity in the UK can commission a module on the Opinions and Lifestyle Survey.
Yes. Based on specific requirements of the client, the Opinions and Lifestyle research team can provide special services such as detailed data analyses and report writing.
The data are usually provided in SPSS format.
However we are able to supply it in other formats (such as SAS, Stata or Excel) if SPSS is not available to the client.
Various topics from the Opinions and Lifestyle Survey are available from the UK Data Archive (UKDA).
Individual level data on classificatory variables that are collected every month are also available.
This data includes household composition, tenure, number of cars available to household, national identity, ethnicity, employment status, educational attainment, enrolment in full-time education, health and income.
To use the UK Data Archive (UKDA) users must register with the Economic and Social Data Service (ESDS), where you will be provided with an Athens ID.
Registration is a one-off process that involves providing the UKDA with personal details, and agreement to an End User Licence which outlines the conditions for using the data.
