Growing Up in Ireland Data Workshops

Workshop Schedules – ***workshop on 21st November now fully booked***

Growing Up in Ireland will host a Data Workshop to promote and support the use of the Infant Cohort datasets (Wave 1, Wave 2 and Wave 3) on Tuesday 21st November from 10am to 1pm at the offices of the Economic and Social Research Institute in Whitaker Square, Dublin.

Training will cover a range of topics and is designed to give a comprehensive overview of the conduct of the study, the data themselves and supporting documentation, as well as how to match the Wave 1, Wave 2 and Wave 3 datasets. Researchers who have previously attended a data workshop on the Wave 1 or Wave 2 data should note that this upcoming workshop will cover much of the same content. No prior familiarity with the Growing Up in Ireland data is assumed. The Child Cohort data will not be covered in this workshop.

Those interested in attending should contact guiworkshop@esri.ie. Places are strictly limited and allocated on a ‘first-come first-served’ basis. There is no registration fee for the workshop.

 Workshops are based on the Anonymised Microdata Files (AMFs) lodged with ISSDA. The Anonymised Microdata Files (AMF) for the Infant Cohort provide many of the key variables from both waves of data collection and have been prepared in such a way as to protect the anonymity of all participants. Both datafiles are accompanied by a set of documents describing the data, their structure and content. Potential users wishing to access the anonymised data should apply to the Irish Social Science Data Archive (ISSDA) at this site.
