Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings linked to 2011 Census - England and Wales

The Wage and Employment Dynamics (WED) data linkage project is a collaboration led by researchers from the University of the West of England, aiming to better understand wage inequalities in Britain. Phase one of the project was made up of two parts: 1) Linkage of the Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings (ASHE) data to 2011 Census; and 2) the development of Stata code to enrich the ASHE data. This dataset allows for insight into the dynamics of wage and employment issues, and how characteristics such as gender, disability, and ethnicity influence these.
