Data Insight: Clinical coding and capture of Long COVID: a cohort study in Wales using linked health and demographic data
This Data Insight looks at clinical coding of Long COVID recorded in primary and secondary care to aid understanding of coding quality, the variation of use in primary care software systems and the completeness and usability of data. It provides a comprehensive characterisation of patients clinically diagnosed with Long COVID, with the aim of building a deeper understanding of this relatively new condition.
Data Insight: European Union Settled Status (EUSS) Data Linkage Project (Wales): Preliminary findings for education
This Data Insight provides a preliminary analysis on education data relating to children born in the EU living in Wales and children born in Wales living in Wales, which details their attendance and attainment at school.
Data Insight: Exploring the complex relationship between legislation, policies and research: Built Environments And Child Health in WalEs and AuStralia (BEACHES)
This Data Insight focuses on the work being carried out by the Built Environments And Child Health in WalEs and AuStralia (BEACHES) team in Swansea University. It provides a summary of key Welsh legislation and policy areas on the built environment and child health. We describe the data used in the BEACHES project and present the statistical analysis to be conducted, as well as the dissemination process and engagement with stakeholders throughout the project.
Data Insight: Exploring transitions to post-compulsory education in Wales
This Data Insight explores transitions from school to Post-Compulsory Education and Training (PCET) in Wales.
Data Insight: The gender progression and pay gap for teachers in Wales
This Data Insight examined differences between female and male teaching staff at different career stages using the School Workforce Annual Census (SWAC).
Data Insight: Effectiveness of careers guidance in supporting participation in Post Compulsory Education and Training (PCET)
This Data Insight explores the influence careers guidance can have on transitions to Post Compulsory Education and Training (PCET) in Wales. The analysis examines rates of transition to PCET in Wales, whether the receipt of careers guidance during key stage 4 supports transition to PCET and, if so, whether it benefits some groups of pupils more than others.
Data Insight: How is careers guidance for school pupils prioritised?
This Data Insight explores how information is used to inform decisions regarding the provision of careers guidance interviews among key stage 4 (KS4) pupils in Wales. It explores the relative importance of background characteristics contained within administrative education records compared to information supplied by pupils via the Careers Wales diagnostic tool.
Engagement with the Hwb virtual learning environment during Covid-19 school closures

Data Insights: European Union migrants living in Wales (January 2022)
This Data Insight from ADR Wales examines the differences between the number of European Union (EU) migrants living in Wales, and other countries of the UK, using different data sources. It particularly focuses on applications to the EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS), which has been a requirement for EU nationals living in the UK following the UK’s decision to leave the EU. In addition to considering the number of EU migrants from the different data sources, it also compares information on the origin countries of EU migrants to the UK.
Data Insights: Informing better use of Welsh hospital admissions data in the SAIL Databank (January 2022)
This Data Insight from ADR Wales reviewed the clinical coding completeness and lag in the Patient Episode Database for Wales (PEDW). Findings indicate there is a significant lag in clinical coding which people using PEDW should be aware should be aware of. This is important because it indicates that partial episode information is initially entered into PEDW and the records are subsequently updated with clinical coding information. Therefore caution must be exercised when using recent extracts of the dataset for analysis.
