This demonstrator explores the process of putting development-focussed social science research data online using linked data conventions.

Young Lives
Young Lives is an international study of childhood poverty, involving 12,000 children in 4 countries over 15 years. It is led by at team in the Department of International Development at the University of Oxford in association with research and policy partners in the 4 study countries: Ethiopia, India, Peru and Vietnam.

This exploration/demonstrator project has worked with a recent health dataset containing young people's responses to a wide range of questions about their health situation and behaviours. The dataset covers responses from Peru.

The demonstrator has sought to:

Identify ways of modelling the data using RDF;
Creating an RDF version of the data, publishing it online and making it available to query;
Making links between the Young Lives data and other datasets;
Exploring different visualisations of the data;
