The Administrative Data Research Network was an ESRC-funded project that ran from October 2013 to July 2018. It is currently at the end of its funding cycle and is no longer taking applications. Administrative data research will be taken forward in a new project, to be launched later in 2018.

This archival website reflects the state of play at the end of the project in July 2018. All content has been frozen and may not be up to date.

Training and capacity building

The Training and Capacity Building team was based at the University of Manchester. The team trained the SURE trainers in each of the ADRCs and ensured that the same standards were adhered to across the ADRN.

The team continued to coordinate the ADRN-wide outreach to researchers to increase their skills and train the next generation of social scientists. They often visited doctoral training centres (DTCs) and attended conferences where they brought the ADRN to the attention of both academic and government-based researchers.

Elaine Mackay and Mark Elliot were the editors of the ADRN Guides, a series of works that provide guidance to ADRN researchers on several topics, such as data linkage, the legal framework within which they work, the principles of statistical disclosure control, and many more.

They were also heavily involved in the organisation and scientific committee of the administrative data research conferences.
