The Administrative Data Research Centre for England wants to transform the way administrative data collections are converted into knowledge and evidence for public and economic policy.

As a society, we can find new and efficient ways to tackle some of the major issues we face by improving access to and use of these collections of data. That means safely managing and maximising the use of new, de-identified, linked data from across sectors and government departments and working across academic disciplines. This will create new evidence to help develop, implement and evaluate public policy and future research. It will also inform and develop new methods to link and analyse data.

Working as part of the Administrative Data Research Network, the Centre aims to:

  • develop new linked data collections
  • provide access to them
  • make sure that data are accessed and analysed safely and effectively, maximising societal benefit
  • develop administrative data research capacity

As well as giving trained researchers access to administrative data, the Administrative Data Research Centre for England will also carry out its own original research:

  • methodological research on the linkage and quality assessment of administrative data
  • substantive administrative data research which informs knowledge and policy

The following projects give an example of areas of current research interest:
