LSOA II Linked Mortality Restricted-use File

Data File Description

The updated LSOA II Linked Mortality Restricted-use File provides mortality follow-up data from the date of SOA II interview (1994-1996) through December 31, 2006. Mortality ascertainment is based primarily upon deaths previously identified during one of two follow-up interviews, in 1997-1998 and 1999-2000, and results from a probabilistic match between LSOA II and NDI death certificate records. The LSOA II Linked Mortality Restricted-use data contains 9,447 records with information on LSOA II participant eligibility status, vital status, date of death, age at death, and underlying and contributing causes of death. Additional death certificate data are available by special request [PDF - 125 KB]. The LSOA II Linked Mortality Restricted-use data file does not contain perturbed data.

Data Availability

Due to confidentiality requirements, the LSOA II Linked Mortality Restricted-use data are accessible only through the NCHS Research Data Center (RDC)). Approved researchers will be able to analyze data from the LSOA II Restricted-use Linked Mortality File in the RDC. All interested researchers must submit a research proposal to the RDC requesting to access the "2009 LSOA II Restricted-use LMF". Special request variables [PDF - 125 KB], available separately, must be requested specifically, with additional justification, in the RDC proposal. Researchers will not be allowed to access variables from the LSOA II Public-use Linked Mortality File in the RDC.
