Description

The Scottish Longitudinal Study Development and Support Unit (SLS-DSU) has been supporting research projects for 10 years and to mark this achievement we are holding a celebratory event. The event will comprise presentations and a user feedback section at the end. The main session will showcase a selection of the many research projects which have been supported by the SLS-DSU spanning the decade of SLS projects. In addition we will be presenting the SLS 1936 Birth Cohort which we launched earlier this year and an exciting new SLS data development using historical postcodes.
