Provisional timeline for future data availability
Data previously made available
Data made available in June 2020:
Additional death register records via Field 40023 and the Data Portal.
Please note all death records will be made available on the Data Portal. Researchers who are already approved to access any Data-field in Category 100093 will be able to access
the death data without submitting a new basket containing Field 40023. Please see here for details.
The death tables on the Data Portal will be updated as new data becomes available, so going forward no basket refreshes will be required to access
the most up-to-date death data.
The fields in Category 42 and Category 1712 are not being updated to take account of the new death data at this Showcase update.
We hope to update these at a later Showcase update.
UK Biobank assessment centres are currently temporarily closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Data from visits before the assessment centres closed has been added to the resource in recent months so researchers might wish to check they have the most up-to-date data by comparing summary statistics with those on Showcase. However, as UK Biobank hopes to release more record linkage data in the near future, you might want to wait until then before requesting basket refreshes.
Available June/July 2020:
Additional inpatient hospital data. The data will initially be provided via the Data Portal.
