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, which was launched at the end of 2018.

Featured research and case studies

Administrative Data are being used by analysts around the world to evidence and assess Government policies and to improve people’s lives. Their potential now and in the future to help us better understand and tackle some of the major social challenges we face today is enormous.

The Featured Research pages showcase ADRN research and independent case studies of work that is already helping to get homeless people off the streets, understand the impacts of Brexit on the economy and help children in care do better at school and in life.

Some of the research projects are in their early stages as permissions are sought to secure, link and analyse the data. This includes the latest methodological research and developments.
