The Victorian Panel Study
A questionnaire to collect information about the prospects for a Victorian Panel Study (VPS).
The National Archives is to collaborate with appropriate Higher & Further Education stakeholders in order to generate new Information and Technology and Communications resources to the mutual benefit of all parties. The proposed VPS would take as its base the individuals and households recorded in an existing computerised national 2 % sample of the 1851 British census and trace these through subsequent registration and census information for the 50 year period to 1901.
The primary objectives of the pilot are:
- to test differing sampling and methodological issues
- to examine the linking problems involved
- to investigate the relationship between the VPS & other longitudinal data projects
- to explore the strategic partnership which will support the VPS
- to recommend a framework & strategy for creating a full VPS
The questionnaire is intended to gain input into the demand for and potential uses of a VPS.
The form can be completed online at:www.data-archive.ac.uk/home/vps.survey.asp
