A place for panel data in the 'data revolution'?

Briefing/policy papers

Written by Lucy Scott

 In particular the briefing will:
• Introduce the concept of panel data and explain how it differs from other types of survey.
• Discuss, in plain English, the strengths of panel data and considerations when implementing and analysing a panel survey.
• Develop examples of how existing panel surveys have been able to influence and improve policy and practice. 
• Recommend the implementation of nationally-representative panel data to provide a benchmark for measuring progress towards the post-2015 goals.
Lucy Scott and Chiara Mariotti
