Longitudinal Educational Outcomes data set: FOI release

Information request and response under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.

Information requested

You asked for;

“I have recently read the publication 'Longitudinal Educational Outcomes (LEO) from Universities: 2016/17: Scotland’ on the link: https://www.gov.scot/publications/longitudinal-educational-outcomes-leo-univerisities-2016-17-scotland/pages/12/

I am just wondering if I am able to request access to this dataset through a freedom of information request for my dissertation. I am researching if the local authority, higher education provider and subject studied has an affect on graduate earnings. 

Due to the links with SIMD on the publication, I would like to see the data set used and how it was constructed through Department of Education’s LEO data. 

I am more than happy to share my research findings and would appreciate any help and guidance you could give.“


I enclose a copy of all of the information you requested in a CSV file format. 

Due to the size of the files we are unable to upload the documents referred to above.
