What data is available for research?
There is already a variety of data available within ADR UK's various partner data centres for approved researchers to apply to use for projects in the public interest.
Within the Office for National Statistics (ONS) Secure Research Service (SRS), for example, these include the Annual Population Survey (APS), Understanding Society, and National Energy Efficiency Data (NEED), amongst many others. The full list of datasets available in the SRS, and any associated access restrictions, can be seen in the SRS Data 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 (NILS), and Environmental Records, among others.
For data curated by ADR Scotland, the Scottish Centre for Administrative Data Research (SCADR) Researcher Handbook has a wealth of information about what data is available 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. A full list of all datasets currently available via the databank can be found on the SAIL website.
