The Administrative Data Research Network

Tuesday, 27 September 2016 08:52

The Administrative Data Research Network (ADRN) helps researchers gain access to de-identified administrative data so they can carry out social and economic research − research that has the potential to benefit society.

Researchers can apply to the Network with a research idea and request access to datasets. The Network collaborates closely with government departments to make administrative data available to researchers, but the ADRN negotiates this with them on a case-by-case basis. Researchers can access the data in Administrative Data Research Centres in England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales.

Their catalogue gives some information about administrative data that have been used for research in the past.

ADRN – England has produced training podcasts that are informative short concise overviews of their training courses. Watch the podcasts to discover more about their courses, what can be expected and what you will have learnt by the end of each course.
