The ADRN provides a personal, no cost service (to the point of access) to researchers across academia and government to find and link de-identified data for approved research projects. Only charges incurred from government departments will be passed onto researchers.
The ADRN does not hold data. It works on behalf of researchers to scope data requests, negotiate with data providers and facilitate secure access to de-identified and linked (if required) data extracts that would not be accessible through public channels.
Services and expertise provided by the ADRN include:
- Data linkage via a trusted third party
- A secure environment in which to undertake data analysis that protects the security and confidentiality of data provided.
- Training in the safe use of administrative data and additional courses and resources to enhance researcher’s knowledge and skills.
This section provides all the information researchers need to apply to the ADRN to find data for their research.
