ADRN Conference 2016

London, 3 June

The conference

Access to administrative data for research is a positive public good. The de-identification and linking of these records, collected in the course of business by governmental and other bodies, creates a whole new potential for social and economic research and policy evaluation, which up until recently has remained largely unexplored.

The Administrative Data Research Network (ADRN) is a UK-wide initiative, funded by the ESRC in 2013, to facilitate access to linked de-identified administrative data for social and economic research aimed at benefiting society. The results from the Network’s earliest projects were presented at this ADRN Research Conference.
