Introducing the UK’s linked administrative data resources 

ADR UK, in partnership with the UK Statistics Authority (UKSA), is piloting a series of workshops to raise awareness of the wealth of linked administrative datasets available for public-good research across the UK. 

These free workshops may take place in-person or online. Each session will be designed to meet the needs and interests of the relevant host research organisation. Events will typically include: 

  • a brief introduction to administrative data, data linkage, and the ADR UK partnership including its network of trusted research environments 

  • an overview of the ADR UK linked datasets, their related resources, and the funding ADR UK is making available to support their use 

  • an overview from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) or UKSA on how to access data held within the ONS Secure Research  Service 

  • a case-study from a researcher using an ADR UK linked administrative dataset to give a flavour of its research potential. 

There will also be time for discussion and Q&A. 

If your research organisation is interested in hosting an event like this, please email balint.stewart@esrc.ukri.org for more information.
