The UK Data Service / Archive provides access to the largest collection of social, economic and population data sets for research and teaching in academia.

The first time you use the service you'll be asked to register. After that, you will be able to log in to any of the data sets and surveys. A free online training programme is available.

Data is sourced from:

  • official agencies - mainly central government
