Growing Up in Ireland Data Workshops

Workshop Schedule

Data workshops are regularly hosted by the Growing Up in Ireland research team. Details of upcoming workshops will be posted on this website, as well as on our Instagram and Twitter accounts. There are currently no workshops scheduled. However, slides from previous presentations can be found below. All inquiries regarding data workshops should be directed to


Workshops cover a broad range of topics and aim to promote and support the use of the GUI datasets from both the Child Cohort ’98 and the Infant Cohort ’08. Attendees will gain a comprehensive overview of the conduct of the study, the structure of the data, supporting documentation, as well as how to match the datasets across waves.

No prior familiarity with the Growing Up in Ireland data is assumed. The workshops take a general approach to the datasets. The study design, dataset structures and analytic techniques needed to make use of the data overlap across both cohorts so the workshops are informative for all GUI data users.
