 The UK Data Service has also produced a guide, tailored towards students working on undergraduate dissertations and research projects, which provides a helping-hand in getting to grips with the practicalities of using survey data in student research projects.The Using survey data guide and its suite of related web pages aim to cover the key stages of research and include sections on developing research questions and designs, finding and accessing relevant survey data, data analysis and reporting results. It also includes materials for further reading, as well as worksheets - some of which examine topics using an example research project, looking at what determines fear of crime using data from the Crime Survey for England and Wales 2013-2014 and SPSS.Click here to access the guide. 

The UK Data Service visited CUQM on 29th April 2015 and gave a presentation to undergraduate students. The presentation included an introduction to the UKDS and information on how to access their data. The event was filmed and can be viewed below.
