News: Bloomberg

From 15 May Bloomberg is no longer available from the SSL library.

Any readers who wish to access this kind of business intelligence can use the Refinitiv Eikon terminal in the data area, as well as online resources such as Capital IQ and others listed on the Data Analysis Tools & Training page of this guide or Economics subject guide.

Those readers who have a particular need to use Bloomberg - perhaps to develop a familiarity with how it works can still access it in the Sainsbury Library in the Said Business School. They will need to email the Sainsbury to arrange to use it.

The UK Data Service is running a series of free online workshops on using the 2021 Census. Apply for a place by Tuesday 14 June for an opportunity to work with others in planning your use of the 2021 Census. With the release of the 2021 census due to start shortly this is an opportunity to plan your research with support from UKDS and your peer researchers. UKDS plan to hold up to four workshops with a maximum of 20 participants in each.

Those who have been given a workshop place will be contacted with the date and Zoom link. The first workshop date with be 21 June 2022 and other dates will be added in time.

Mapping crime data in R workshops

The UK Data Service is holding two free workshops on mapping crime data in R on 7 and 8 June.

Crime data often contains spatial components. As a result, analyses of crime data can create patterns that are clearly linked to geography. Naturally, putting the data or analysis on a map makes a lot of sense.

The first workshop, Mapping crime data in R: An Introduction to GIS and spatial data, is on 7 June and will cover some fundamental theories and concepts surrounding GIS and spatial data.

The second workshop, Mapping crime data in R: Live code demonstration, is on 8 June and will be a live code demonstration using R to explore these concepts.
The aim of these workshops is to teach participants to use the R statistical and graphical environment to map open-source police recorded crime statistics onto geographic representations.
