Developed for users of the LSAY data, this user guide aims to help researchers understand and work with the LSAY data. The guide brings together information on: how to access the data, the questionnaires, variable naming conventions, derived variables, classifications and code frames, the data framework (using topic areas and data elements), supporting documentation, sample design and weights.
The NEW online data dictionary and LSAY variable listing and metadata complement this user guide. These resources use topic areas to group variables into common themes. They include information on the question text, base populations and variable values (formats). The LSAY variable listing and metadata can be found under 'Related items'.
