Webinar: Creating enriched versions of the core ASHE and ASHE-2011 Census linked datasets


The standard core ASHE and ASHE - 2011 Census datasets are currently available in the Office for National Statistics (ONS) Secure Research Service. The enriched versions can only be generated by running WED-developed Stata code over the original datasets. The enriched versions of the dataset include additional variables, such as minimum wage rates and survey dates, as well as new cross-sectional and two-period longitudinal weights.

With the support of ONS, the WED team are making this Stata code freely available to accredited researchers to use. The enriched datasets provide opportunities for new research on issues such as the returns to education and wage inequality.

About Wage and Employment Dynamics

The WED project, funded by ADR UK, is providing new insights into the dynamics of earnings and employment in the UK. At the heart of this work is the ONS ASHE dataset, which forms a critical source of information on the earnings of employees in the UK. The first phase of the WED project is now complete and accredited researchers can apply to use the ASHE and the ASHE - 2011 Census linked dataset.

About this event

In this webinar, the WED team will:

  • introduce the datasets and coding structure
  • demonstrate how the code can be run
  • explain how researchers can get access to the code files.

There may also be an opportunity for participants to learn from others’ experience by hearing from some early users of the code.

The webinar will include a 20-minute presentation, followed by 25 minutes for questions and discussion. It is likely to be of interest to both existing and new users of the ASHE and ASHE-2011 Census data.

The session will be led by Felix Ritchie, Professor, University of the West of England.

When: Monday 14 November 2022
