|Mapping Census Data in QGIS||
This guide will cover how to map census data in QGIS. The example used in this guide creates a choropleth map showing the percentage of males who work in the manufacturing service using the QGIS package.
|Mapping Census Microdata using R||
This guide aims to show the strength of using Census Microdata for a variety of research purposes, via a worked example taken from real-life research. This guide assumes some familiarity with microdata, mapping and statistical software.
|Quantitative methods e-books||
These quantitative methods e-books and accompanying quizzes are for direct use in teaching students or for self-study. They aim to build skills in quantitative methods and statistical software and use the Living Costs and Food Survey.
Using SPSS, lecturers and students can utilise both the practical and quiz elements of each e-book topic. Topics include examining variables, correlations, regression and multiple regression.
The e-books have been developed through a collaboration of the UK Data Service, National Centre for Research Methods (NCRM), and the Centre for Multi-Level Modelling at the University of Bristol and were created using the StatJR software based on original outputs from the project Using Statistical E-books to teach undergraduate students quantitative methods and statistical software funded by the British Academy.
|Introduction to Research Data Management and Open Research||
This presentation was delivered virtually for Botswana Open University Library on 17th May 2021 as part of a Foundational Data Stewardship Workshop. It is primarily aimed at data stewards but can also be useful to researchers and RDM service providers and should be viewed in conjunction with these two other presentations that were part of the same workshop:
|UK Business Data User Conference 2021||
The UK Data Service and the Office for National Statistics (UK) held a business data conference in 2021. This resource provides all slides, recordings and other useful materials from the conference.
The conference included a mixture of presentations from the Office for National Statistics (ONS), UK Data Service, and researchers who have used data from the UK Surveys covering the areas of business, industry and trade.
|Linking external business data to ONS business data||
The UK Data Service is able to assist researchers wishing to link external business data to ONS business data in the Secure Lab. This guide provides all the information needed to guide users wishing to link external business data to ONS business data.
|Secure Lab User Guide||
This is a guide to the UKDS Secure Lab. Within this guide, users can find everything they need to know in order to access and use the highly detailed, sensitive data available via the UKDS SecureLab.
|Voices of the Parliament: A Corpus Approach to Parliamentary Discourse Research||
While corpus methods are widely used in linguistics, including gender analysis, this tutorial shows the potential of richly annotated language corpora for research of the socio-cultural context and changes over time that are reflected through language use. The tutorial encourages students and scholars of modern languages, as well as users from other fields of digital humanities and social sciences who are interested in the study of socio-cultural phenomena through language, to engage with user-friendly digital tools for the analysis of large text collections. The tutorial is designed in such a way that it takes full advantage of both linguistic annotations and the available speaker and text metadata to formulate powerful quantitative queries that are then further extended with manual qualitative analysis in order to ensure adequate framing and interpretation of the results.
The tutorial demonstrates the potential of parliamentary corpora research via concordancers without the need for programming skills. No prior experience in using language corpora and corpus querying tools is required in order to follow this tutorial. While the same analysis could be carried out on any parliamentary corpus with similar annotations and metadata, in this tutorial we will use the siParl 2.0 corpus which contains parliamentary debates of the National Assembly of the Republic of Slovenia from 1990 to 2018. Knowledge of Slovenian is not required to follow the tutorial. To reproduce the analyses in other languages, we invite you to explore a parliamentary corpus of your choice from those available through CLARIN.

|Privacy by Design in Research||
This is privacy by design in research! The aim of this training material is to show researchers how to perform a data protection impact assessment for an innovative research scenario to enable responsible re-use of archived speech corpora.
The project website provides help to develop learning goals.
