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.

Presentations from the BSG’s 2016 Annual Meeting are now available through BSGtv. For the first time, most sessions (all four days) were recorded! To access the recordings, log in and use the left-hand navigation to access BSGtv.

As always, speakers were asked to give their consent for their presentations to be uploaded to BSGtv. If you’re looking for a particular talk and can’t find it, there could be three reasons why not. Either it was one of the free papers (which weren’t recorded), or the speaker didn’t want their talk to be available after the conference, or they didn’t let the conference secretariat (MCI) know that their talk could be included. If you’re a speaker in the last category and would like your presentation to be available along with the others, please This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . Include your full name, the day, date, time and title of your presentation, and a statement of explicit consent for your presentation and slides to be made available to BSG members on the BSG website. BSGtv is a membership benefit from the BSG.
