What Big Datasets Can Tell Us About Population Change & Health in Northern Ireland

Free. Registration Required

There has been hype in the media over Big Data, but what do we really know about how large population data is used scientifically? This event, presented by Dr Stefanie Doebler (Queen's University Belfast, NILS-RSU) and Ms Siobhan Morgan (Honest Broker Service, BSO), introduces how demographers and geographers use population data to answer questions about how people live and how life circumstances change over time. 
We introduce two major data sources, the Northern Ireland Longitudinal Study, which is the largest representative longitudinal population study existing in the UK and large, unique health data from the Business Services Organisation (BSO).
