Growing Up in Ireland Data Workshops

Workshop Schedules

The next Growing Up in Ireland Data Workshop will take place on Monday March 9th 2020. Click here to register.

The workshop will take place from 10am-2pm at the offices of the Economic and Social Research Institute in Dublin.  Places are limited and allocated on a ‘first-come first-served’ basis. There is no registration fee for the workshop.

The workshop will cover a broad range of topics and aims to promote and support the use of the GUI datasets from both the Child Cohort ’98 and the Infant Cohort ’08. You will gain a comprehensive overview of the conduct of the study, the structure of the data, supporting documentation, as well as how to match the datasets across waves.

No prior familiarity with the Growing Up in Ireland data is assumed. The workshop takes a general approach to the datasets. The study design, dataset structures and analytic techniques needed to make use of the data overlap across both cohorts so the workshop will be informative for all GUI data users.

Researchers who have previously attended a data workshop on earlier waves of the data should note that this upcoming workshop will cover much of the same content.
