Centre for Longitudinal Study Information and User Support (CeLSIUS)

*

CeLSIUS is the support team for UK university based users of the Office for National Statistics Longitudinal Study (the 'LS'). It is based at University College London (UCL).

CeLSIUS is one of the services funded by the ESRC Census Programme and as such services are provided free of charge to staff and students of UK academic institutions.

The LS is a data set comprising linked census and event records for 1% of the population of England and Wales (about 500,000 people at any one census). It was set up in 1974 to address problems with the adequacy of occupational mortality data, and the lack of longitudinal fertility data, but since then it has been used to address a wide range of other research questions.
