ADR UK Researcher Symposium: Health and wellbeing - insights from administrative data research

18/07/2023 - 18/07/2023

Join researchers from across the ADR UK (Administrative Data Research UK) partnership to hear insights from their health and wellbeing research. Speakers will share their findings, methodology, and stories of impact on how health interacts with other parts of our lives, from education to the way we travel to work.

You’ll hear how linking de-identified data from across different areas of public life, and providing secure research access to these datasets, leads to unprecedented insights that can inform better decisions in policy and practice. You’ll also have the chance to ask questions.

This online event is open to all researchers – whether you’re familiar with administrative data or not – as well as policymakers, practitioners and professionals working with insights on health and wellbeing.

Register to hear how health and wellbeing research using linked administrative data can generate evidence to improve people’s lives.
