The Administrative Data Research Network is an ESRC-funded project that ran from October 2013 - 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.

Bloomsbury Festival 2017

ADRC-England was at the Bloomsbury Festival 2017 (#BloomsburyFest) on Saturday 21 October as part of the UCL Hub. The Silvia and Matthew talked to 153 people at our ADRC-E stand across the day in the Northern Cloisters of the UCL Main Quad.

'Better Candies Benefit Society': We counted all buttons (our 'Census' data) in the 4 jars (Data Linkage Platform) corresponding to the 4 types of candies provided by the 'Ministry of Candies'. 153 people took part in our experiment: 20 girls < 15 years old (13.1%), 13 boys < 15 years old (8.5%), 76 women ≥ 15 years old (49.7%) and 44 men ≥ 15 years old (28.7%). After careful consideration of the 'Published Results', the 'Candy Council' for the Bloomsbury Festival 2017 declared that liquorice (again!) will not be taken to the festival anymore.
