Wage & Employment Dynamics Virtual Seminar: Exploring the ASHE dataset
The Wage & Employment Dynamics (WED) project, a collaboration led by researchers from the University of the West of England, aims to better understand wage inequalities in Britain. This is the second of the WED virtual seminar series.
The complexity of data sources is being driven by the demand for microdata and in-depth detail at the aggregate level. One of the primary data sources for researchers and policy advisors analysing the UK labour market is the Annual Survey of Household Earnings (ASHE). Arusha McKenzie (UWE) and Damian Whittard (UWE) will discuss why it is important to quality assure data from the Annual Survey of Household Earnings (ASHE) after 40 years. A case study will be analysed to show evidence of potential bias in a key analytical variable, further evidencing the need for revised documentation and the need for additional markers.
The seminar will take place on 24 August from 10.30 - 11.00.
