iConnect Data Releases

The first Data Release for Phase 1 Release 1 occured in Mar 2011 and covered all variables for 3516 participants. By June 2011 derived variables on travel distance for the same 3516 participants were integrated [Phase 1 Release 2] with further upgrades in Nov 2011 [Phase1 Release 3] and again in Mar 2012 [Phase 1 Release 4] covering the whole dataset. In Nov 2011 the first Phase 2 release, Release 1 containing all variables for 1906 participants was created and further variables added in Dec 2011 followed by other updates in Mar 2012.

The current version of the iConnect Data Dictionary available here is an earlier version; it is our intention to update this as soon as practical.
