OpinionPanel’s very own Student Factfile was referenced by the Department for Business Innovation & Skills (BIS) in their recent white paper Students at the Heart of the System, as an example of how to ‘present information imaginatively’. You can download your own copy of the Student Factfile here, which provides essential data about the lives, behaviours, attitudes, demographics and trends of students before, during and after their time at university.

Here’s what BIS said about OpinionPanel’s findings:

Detailed data should be made publicly available so it can be analysed and re-presented in a variety of formats to meet the needs of students, their parents, and careers advisers or teachers…

This already happens to some extent with organisations such as OpinionPanel, an independent market research company, which re-presents publicly available data in ways which potential students might find useful. Their recent publication, The Student Fact File 2011, includes information ranging from the socio-economic background of applicants to higher education institutions to how often students go ‘clubbing’.
