Using data intelligently – creating better knowledge for a better society

The Administrative Data Research Network helps researchers gain access to de-identified administrative data so they can carry out social and economic research − research that has the potential to benefit society.

Researchers can apply to the Network with a research idea and request access to datasets. The Network collaborates closely with government departments to make administrative data available to researchers, but we negotiate this with them on a case-by-case basis. Researchers can access the data in our Administrative Data Research Centres in England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales

Our catalogue gives you some information about administrative data that have been used for research in the past.
