Scottish Longitudinal Study (SLS)*
* In the England and Wales Longitudinal Study (ONS LS) and the Northern Ireland Longitudinal Study (NILS) synthetic data are currently being implemented
Synthetic data are given only to approved researchers who are granted access to the original sensitive data after signing a disclaimer.
Researchers are provided with a single synthetic version of a project-specific extract.
Data are labelled appropriately to make it clear that they are synthetic.
Synthetic data are used for preliminary analysis and the development of data cleaning and analysis code.
Final analyses have to be run on the original data.
Substantial costs and time savings related to visits to safe havens by researchers can be made.
