The Administrative Data Research (ADR) Scotland programme funded work to create a linkable longitudinal Looked After Children dataset, which is available for research purposes. This document summarises the process of creating that longitudinal dataset, based on annual Looked After Children data returns supplied by local authorities to Scottish Government, and includes an overview of the outputs of the work.

Hi Craig,

 

Many thanks for sharing. This is a really useful document - I'm particularly interested in the suggestions of use for the data quality flags.

 

Quick question - the document states that metadata is published on the Research Data Scotland website but I couldn't see this. Is it still to be uploaded perhaps?

 

Cheers,

 

Joanna.
