CLS COVID-19 survey online training session

6 Aug 2020

In August 2020 we ran an online training session to support researchers wishing to use data from our recent COVID-19 survey.

In May we carried out a wave 1 (of 3) survey of over 18,000 participants (aged between 19 and 74) of five nationally representative longitudinal cohort studies based at UCL.

Researchers now have access to wave 1 data from four of these studies, via the UK Data Service. Data from the fifth study will be available soon. More details are on our COVID-19 survey page.

This training session was hosted on Microsoft Teams and featured:

  • an introduction to the data collection and how the data can be accessed
  • a demonstration on how to use the weights and some simple commands to generate descriptive statistics by cohort
  • an introduction to the time use question, and a research case-study
  • the design of the mental health and wellbeing questions, and research case-study
    Q&A session to support your research


  • Prof Alissa Goodman, Director, CLS
  • Dr Richard Silverwood, Associate Prof, CLS
  • Dr Praveetha Patalay, Associate Prof, CLS
