Weekly British Grain Prices from the London Gazette, 1770-1820

L. Brunt & E. Cannon
The period of the study was characterised by major improvements in financial institutions and transport. The objectives of the study were to see how pricing behaviour changed as a result of this. Since the prices are weekly and by county, it is possible to see how seasonality and regional patterns changed over time. Quantifying the effects of these changes should enable us to see their relative importance in promoting economic growth.<br> <br> The general aim...

International Passenger Survey, 2000

Social Survey Division Office For National Statistics
The depositor recommends that only expert users who are familiar with the coding and weighting structures use this dataset as limited support is available. Some considerable understanding of the data is required before meaningful analyses can be made, and care must be taken when performing time series operations as codes can vary from year to year.

Teaching Adults With Learning Disabilities To Use Virtual Environments : Observational Data, 2000

P. J. Standen
Interactive software in general, and virtual environments in particular, have potential as an aid to learning for both children and adults with learning disabilities. More needs to be known, however, about the best way to exploit it. The study was designed to identify what strategies human tutors use when working with adults who were learning to use virtual environments and to investigate their effectiveness by examining changes over time in both tutor and learner. The...

Baltic Iron and the Organisation of the British Iron Market in the Eighteenth Century

C. Evans
The project was concerned with the role of international commerce and mercantile networks in the early phases of British industrialisation. Specifically, it was concerned with the operation of the market for malleable bar iron. Between 1650 and 1800 domestic ironmasters were unable to meet the growing demand for bar iron. The shortfall was made good by imports from the Baltic, first from Sweden, then from Russia. The objective of the project was to uncover the...

Relation Between Visual Properties and Action : Experimental Data, 1999-2000

R. Ellis & M. Tucker
The data come from a series of experiments investigating the role of action in object representation. All the experiments involved variants of the Simon task (a type of Stimulus Response Compatibility) where a task irrelevant object property (the cue-property) was used to cue a response that was compatible or incompatible with an object affordance. Participants made speeded responses according to the cue-property of the object. The main interest was to see if the object affordances...

Alcohol and Suicide, Jews and Protestants, 1999-2000

A. MacLeod & K. Miriam Loewenthal
The aims of the project were to examine alcohol- and suicide-related beliefs among UK Protestants and Jews, both men and women, to investigate the so-called alcohol-suicide-depression hypothesis. This hypothesis suggests that attitudes to alcohol use and suicide will be more favourable among Protestants than Jews, and among men more than women. Questionnaire measures of alcohol- and suicide-related beliefs and behaviour assessed the dependent variables in an analysis of covariance design. The independent variables were cultural-religious...

Survey of Personal Incomes, 1998-1999 : Public Use Tape

Similar surveys were carried out every two years until 1998 to monitor trends in the prevalence of cigarette smoking. The survey then moved to an annual cycle, and questions on alcohol consumption...

Foreign direct investment [FDI] into the United Kingdom (UK) has grown considerably in recent years. US, French, German and Japanese companies have generally accounted for the largest share of this FDI. In addition to greenfield and expansion investment, a major vehicle for inward FDI has been the acquisition of UK companies. <br> The project examined whether nationally distinct approaches to management were introduced, following acquisition, among a sample of 201 UK subsidiaries of French, German,...

Constituency Campaigning in the 2001 General Election

D. T. Denver, G. Hands & J. Fisher

The aim of this project was to assess and chart the continuing developments in campaigning (such as the increased use of telephone canvassing, direct mail, etc.). The 2001 general election was particularly interesting in terms of...
