Utility Measures for Synthetic Data

Abstract:

When synthetic data are produced to overcome potential disclosure they can be used either in place of the original data or, more commonly, to allow researchers to develop code that will ultimately be run on the original data. The utility of synthetic data can be measured by comparing the results of the final analysis with the synthetic and original data. This is not possible until the final analysis is complete. General utility measures that measure the overall differences between the original and synthetic data are more useful for those creating synthetic data. This presentation will discuss two such measures. The first is a propensity score measure originally proposed by Woo et. al., 2009 and the second is one based on comparing tables, suggested by Voas and Williamson, 2001. Their null distributions, when the synthesis model is "correct" will be discussed as well as their practical implementation as part of the synthpop package.

The Nurses’ Lives Research Programme: enabling practice through new insights to population health using routine data about nurses

Atherton, I. & Kyle, R. (2016) Centre for Population Change (CPC) seminar, Ladywell House, Edinburgh, UK, 25 February 2016 [SLS]

Other information:
Abstract:

Health care professionals have an increasingly important role at a population level. This role requires teaching that encourages and facilitates students to link their individual practice to population health. Making teaching accessible is challenging given what might seem quite abstract ideas in comparison to the immediacy of other interventions. The Nurses' Lives Research Programme at Edinburgh Napier University is endeavouring to make teaching on population health more accessible through research on nurses themselves. Findings are providing new insights into the social determinants of health. These provide a basis for practitioners to reflect on issues that relate not only to their patients, but also to themselves, potentially shattering patient-public divides, and increasing awareness of the complexities of nursing interventions. Two exemplar studies will be presented. One estimating the prevalence of overweight and obese nurses in Scotland, and another analysing evidence for a Glasgow Effect amongst nurses in Scotland. Implications of findings for teaching related to population health and for health care professionals are considered.

Moving to move up? Disentangling the link between spatial and occupational mobility

McCollum, D. (2016) Centre for Population Change (CPC) seminar, Ladywell House, Edinburgh, UK, 30 June 2016 [SLS]

Other information:
Abstract:

Despite being the focus of much research, the relationship between spatial and social mobility remains contested. The key question in these debates relates to the issue of how individual and place effects, and spatial mobility, interact to generate specific occupational outcomes and trajectories. Whilst conceptually intriguing, a longstanding challenge faced by scholars in this realm relates to the availability of data sources and methodological approaches that allow for the empirical definition and disentanglement of the various factors that 'produce' occupational mobility. The approach taken in this analysis explores these relationships in the context of occupational mobility in Scotland 2001-2011 using the census based Scottish Longitudinal Study (SLS). This presentation will consider the practical and theoretical advances offered by this approach to examining the complex nexus between occupational and spatial mobility. We will also introduce a new project which will mainly use the SLS to explore recent internal population dynamics in Scotland.

Evaluating the impact of area regeneration programmes in Scotland: a mixed- methods approach

Archibald, D. (2015) iPower presentation, Dept of Geography & Sustainable Development, University of St Andrews, UK, 20 May 2015 [SLS]

Other information:
Abstract:

The last three decades have seen significant investment in area-based initiatives in Scotland to regenerate disadvantaged areas. The potential to combat multiple deprivation is often used as justification for such a large-scale investment. Nevertheless, evaluation of these initiatives has been limited and produced conflicting results. Some regeneration programmes appear to have had positive effects on the lives of residents, whilst others have had no, or even a detrimental effect.

This may, however, be attributed to difficulties in designing appropriate evaluation studies rather than the effects of regeneration per se. For example, following individuals over time so that their changing circumstances can be more related to the regeneration processes that they experience has rarely been done. Many evaluations have relied on comparing population characteristics in an area before and after regeneration, ignoring the fact that the resident population may have changed substantially during this period.

This research sought to address such limitations by using a rigorous research design that employed longitudinal data and innovative techniques to assess how area regeneration impacted on the lives of individuals resident in disadvantaged areas in Scotland.

Exploring Patterns of Subject Specific Performance in School Attainment in Scotland

Playford, C., Gayle, V., Connelly, R. & Murray, S. (2015) Employment Research Institute Seminar Series, Edinburgh Napier University, 17 September 2015 [SLS]

Other information:
Abstract:

The Scottish school education system roughly mirrors the system in the rest of the UK but the qualifications that young people study for are markedly different. Although the Scottish school qualifications system has recently undergone radical change, Standard Grades have been the main qualifications undertaken by Scottish pupils when they reach the end of compulsory schooling for a number of years, and are the main focus of this paper. These qualifications are important because they mark the first branching point of the educational life-course in Scotland. The study of socio-economic inequalities in school level attainment is well established, however school-level educational attainment in Scotland has been under-researched due to the lack of suitable data resources. In this paper we exploit a recent linkage of administrative data from the Scottish Qualifications Authority with the Scottish Longitudinal Study.

Pupils undertaking Standard Grades studied a mixture of ‘core’ and ‘optional’ subjects from a wide diet of subject choices. Each Standard Grade subject was awarded an individual grade ranging from 1 – 7. Therefore, Scottish pupils have highly individualised patterns of Standard Grade results and there is no single agreed upon overall measure of a pupil’s Standard Grade attainment. In recent work examining school attainment in England and Wales we have demonstrated that there are substantively important patterns of subject level attainment which are occluded when general overall measures are constructed and analysed.

In this paper we examine the relationship between parental socio-economic circumstances and detailed subject-specific patterns of standard grade performance using latent variable techniques. The results of this research will facilitate a better understanding of standard grade attainment in Scotland. We will also make methodological considerations by comparing alternative latent variable approaches.

Breakout Session description:

Dr Lee Williamson will introduce you to the SLS which links together routinely collected administrative data for a 5.3% representative sample of the Scottish population. The SLS with appropriate permissions can also be linked to other health data sources.. The size and scope of the SLS make it an unparalleled resource for understanding a range of socio-economic, demographic and health questions.

Dr Zhiqiang Feng will reports findings from a study which investigated the consequences, and risk factors of young people not in education, employment or training (NEET) over the past two decades. The study used the SLS to allow an effective assessment of risk factors and consequences. The research provides new longitudinal evidence which may help to understand past and current policy impacts as well as informing future policy development.

Understanding the impact of air pollution at the start of life: using geographic variation in air pollution, census and administrative data to measure air pollution’s impact on the unborn child

Abstract:

It is now widely recognised, from studies in many different countries, that air pollution has adverse effects on human health and explains a significant proportion of the global burden of disease. Recent work has also suggested that air pollution may have a negative effect on the outcomes of pregnancy, such as birthweight and prematurity. However, although these studies have enhanced knowledge and understanding of the risks of air pollution to foetuses, caution is still needed when interpreting the findings collectively because of important differences in methodological approaches. Importantly, the majority of studies use the nearest monitor method to estimate maternal exposure for both the entire pregnancy and trimester specific periods, which averages pollutant concentrations from the nearest (static) monitor to the mother's residential location. In this talk I will outline why landuse based regression approaches may in fact be a better method for estimating exposure, discuss the results from two studies in Scotland and consider how reconstructing historical air pollution environments may help with the understanding of aetiology of diseases in later life.

Abstract:

Social class inequalities in premature all-cause mortality are well documented in the UK. This study situates the analysis of three large cohort studies within Link and Phelan’s “fundamental cause” hypothesis and examines the social class differences in two aspects of avoidable mortality – preventable causes and causes amenable to medical intervention. Data come from the ONS (Office for National Statistics) Longitudinal Study for England and Wales baseline 1971 census; Scottish Longitudinal Study baseline 1991 census; and Northern Ireland Mortality Study baseline 2001. Death records are linked to census data and Cox regression models are used to estimate hazard ratios.
