The NILS 2011 Census Linkage Launch Event took place on Thursday 5th June at McAuley House, Belfast.
RSU organised the event which provided participants with an introduction to the NILS 2011 link, explored
some of the research which has been taken forward using the 2011 link and looked to the future at some of
the exciting developments in administrative data.
Ian Shuttleworth (NILS-RSU) and Catherine McLoughlin (NILS-RSU) provided a brief introduction to the NILS and spoke of the benefits
of the NILS 2011 link. Four of our NILS researchers
Dr David Wright,
Dr Aideen Maguire,
Dr Myles Gould and
Dr Stefanie Doebler
all presented interesting talks on the outcome of their 2011 link projects.
The rest of the morning was spent looking forward to future developments. Aside from future links to the NILS database,
delegates were introduced to the Census & Administrative data LongitudinaL Studies (CALLS) Hub, Synthetic data, the Administrative
Data Research Centre and the Beyond 2011 project.
