Flagship datasets

ADR UK flagship datasets are of significant research value and we anticipate will have wide appeal to researchers. This is integral to our mission to enable research that has the potential to lead to better informed policy decisions and more effective public services. 

The flagship datasets are findable in the ADR UK Data Catalogue and available for all accredited researchers to apply to access via one of ADR UK’s trusted research environments. They have approved legal gateways for research and are publicly documented.  


Ministry of Justice & Department for Education linked dataset - England

The MoJ-DfE linked dataset allows analysis to understand links between childhood characteristics, educational outcomes and (re)offending. The dataset includes data from Prison, Courts, Police National Computer, National Pupil Database, Looked-After-Children and Children in Need and covers variables such as demographics, offending data, school exclusions, and all episodes of children in care.

Nursing and Midwifery Council Register linked to Census 2021 - England and Wales

This dataset brings together the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC)’s UK-wide register with the Census 2021 for England and Wales. The dataset enables cross-sectional and longitudinal analysis from the register of nurses, associate nurses, and midwives. This data comprises information provided by nurses, nursing associates, and midwives when they first join the register, and then every three years when they revalidate to maintain their registration.

Welsh Environment Dataset

This dataset contains household-level exposure to multiple aspects of the built environment. The availability of this data and the ability to link it together and to other secondary data sources presents a unique opportunity to gain further insight on identifying the most modifiable aspects of the built environment to inform local authority and government planners and work towards evaluations of interventions.
