Improving how you find data.

Why we are asking these questions

We are looking to make enhancements to the Data Catalogue and Data Sheets to ensure they are more helpful to users, and so we would really welcome your feedback to help us develop this.  

How long it will take

We would like to ask a series of questions that should take no more than a few minutes to complete. 

If you are not familiar with the Data Catalogue and/or Data Sheets then please familiarise yourself with them using the links below before continuing.

The Data Catalogue 

The Data Catalogue is a list and description of all the datasets available in the Secure Research Service along with key filterable characteristics such as keywords on topic (e.g. labour market, economy, crime etc.), years of coverage and geographical levels. Link to Data Catalogue.

The Data Sheets 

The Data Sheets are a collection of documents that each provide further detail for specific data sets on their methodology, secure research usage and commonly associated datasets. We have attached a proposed template for your convenienceLink to Data Sheet.
