Stack of files filled with papers

Within the Office for National Statistics (ONS) Secure Research Service, for example, these include magistrates’ court defendant case level data, the Annual Population Survey (APS) and National Energy Efficiency Data (NEED), among many other datasets. The full list of data available in the Secure Research Service, and all information available about each dataset, can be seen in the ONS Secure Research Service Metadata Catalogue.

The ADR Northern Ireland Data Prospectus details the range of data sources available via the Northern Ireland Statistics & Research Agency (NISRA) – which handles data curated by ADR Northern Ireland – including the School Census, the Northern Ireland Longitudinal Study, and Environmental Records, among others.

For data curated by ADR Scotland, the ADR Scotland Data Catalogue details currently available datasets, including links to metadata files and supporting information. The Scottish Centre for Administrative Data Research (SCADR) Researcher Handbook also has a wealth of information about available data and how to access it.

ADR UK is one of several funders of the SAIL Databank as the handler of data curated by ADR Wales. Read a full list of all datasets currently available via the SAIL Databank.
