Analysis of differences between consentors and non-consentors to inform modelling of potential consent biases (2011)

Funded by the ESRC

The Department for Work and Pensions Incomes Monitoring team would like to offer a placement opportunity for a researcher to carry out a project investigating work on linking the Family Resources Survey (FRS) to administrative data sources where survey respondents have given consent to do so. We are keen to understand which adjustments should be applied to the non-consenting or else otherwise unlinked population.

The researcher would be responsible for carrying out the analyses, proposing agreed methodology(ies), and producing a published research paper. It is estimated that this work will take up to six months on a part-time basis.
