Aims: To develop computational methods for creating profiles derived from the national Electronic Health Records (EHR) and to build tools to transform raw EHR into research-ready data for statistical analyses
Aims: To evaluate characteristics of linked vs unlinked participants in three different cohorts - a group of people with a common characteristic - and the added benefits of updating important identifiers (e.g. postcode at school entry)
Aims: To develop methods for evaluating possible non-linkage biases in linked dataset estimates caused by not being able to link all subjects of interest across datasets
Aims: To investigate requirements for information governance which reflect both legal compliance and public attitudes to data sharing

Aims: To help social work policymakers and professionals to understand which groups of children are most likely to re-enter care, and who may need additional support when leaving
Linking Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings to HMRC administrative data to analyse the impact of (vocational) education on jobs performed

Aim: This research aims to assess the current Job Seeker’s Allowance system, which plays a central role in the dynamics of the UK labour market, to understand how it can be improved in future.

Aims: To examined the effect of changes and continuities in Community Mental Health (CMH) services on the life experience of CMH service users in England.
Aims: To further understand the more detailed link between pupil disadvantage, the nature of pupil intakes to schools, and educational outcomes.
Patterns of error in survey based estimates of consumption and their implications for energy consumption
Aims: To understand the patterns of energy consumption reporting error.
Aims: To provide a fuller and clearer answer than has previously been possible to the question of whether admissions to higher education in the UK are fair.
Aims: To assess using four different methods, the variations in hospital discharges by CTOs and effects that CTOs have on patients.
Aims: To determine whether diabetic patients are concentrated within specific types of areas, whether diabetic patients are highly mobile, and which areas diabetic patients tend to move to
Aims: To understand whether the relationship between neighbourhood deprivation and poor mental health is caused, in some part, by the migration of individuals using mental health services into inner-city deprived areas, where specialist health services are often concentrated.
Evaluating linkage between children's health, education and social care data - pre-term births sub-study
Aims: To develop linkage between primary care and Hospital Episode Statistics datasets using shared clinical characteristics.
Aims: To meet an urgent need for evidence-based guidance on the effective use of contextual data in university admissions.
Aims: To identify what helps people to live well or makes it difficult to live well when they have, or care for someone with, dementia.
