Many social scientists now wish to investigate complex research questions that require the combination of datasets from multiple sources. The key objectives are; (i) to provide a practical demonstration of how Grid technologies can be used to facilitate the integration of data from disparate sources and overcome a major barrier to research use of multiple datasets; (ii) to demonstrate how it is possible to Grid-enabled existing socio-economic data sources and associated data services and make them available to other Grid-based services; (iii) to demonstrate the potential of the Grid for teaching purposes by building a user interface to a Grid-based service which is suitable for student use; (iv) to demonstrate how Grid technologies can be used to extend the functionality of existing data services; (v) to illustrate how the integration of multiple datasets from different sources can enhance the analysis/visualisation of changing patterns of deprivation at a small area scale.
