UK Data Service

The UK Data Service provides access to the UK's largest collection of UK and international social, economic and population data. The service is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). Data available include census data, international macrodata, longitudinal studies, qualitative/mixed methods and UK surveys - see 'Key Data' for more information.
