- What sorts of classes about the BHPS or training about its uses are available?
Throughout the year, BHPS research staff conduct short introductory courses covering basic features of the BHPS data structure and data manipulation. Also, week-long courses concerning special types of analysis, such as event history or panel data methods for example, using BHPS data are run concurrent with the University of Essex summer school. Also the two week ‘BHPS Data Confrontation Workshop’ run in the summer school gives attendees the opportunity to work on their own data analysis.
Details of upcoming courses can be found in the User’s Group area of the BHPS website under the section entitled BHPS Courses. Course materials may also be downloaded from this area.
