    CPC at Understanding Society Scientific Conference 2019

    CPC members will be attending the Understanding Society Scientific Conference between 2-4 July. Along with a CPC exhibition stand, members will be presenting their latest projects using data from Understanding Society and the British Household Panel Survey. Professor Hill Kulu, CPC’s newly appointed Co-Director, is one of this year’s keynote speakers.

    The conference, this year at the University of Essex, brings together researchers from across the world to share their work based on longitudinal household panel studies. The conference will also showcase survey methodology, non-response and attrition, survey representativeness and bias, as well as research on neighbourhoods, wellbeing, employment, education, gender, ethnicity, politics, families and partnerships.

    Many CPC projects rely on data from Understanding Society and the British Household Panel Survey. The data has allowed our researchers to explore the life transitions, choices and expectations of people in the UK, and how our lives compare with others around the world.

    Watch CPC member, Professor Brienna Perelli-Harris, discuss her research on partnership formation and cohabiting using Understanding Society data. Brienna is Understanding Society's Champion for Family.
