If you have issues accessing the data dictionary through the search option, you can download the data dictionary file SLSDictionary_U8.1 (This is a database file that can be opened in ‘Access’ compressed size 1,134 KB, actual file size 4,616 KB).
Welcome to the data dictionary with advanced search and save options across all three LSs.
Before you start please read our guidance notes.
This allows use of Boolean search options, search terms such as "+adult -male" can be used to find all entries matching 'adult' but omitting entries that also have the term 'male' from those results. You can read some guidance notes about Boolean Search parameters here.
This automatically uses a wildcard match to any term entered. Searching for 'adu' will therefore match Variable names such as 'ADULTS9', 'MADUMTIM', etc.
This allows you to select from a list of available Tables. The list of Tables is filtered if a particular LS is selected.
