Our Data Insights offer bite-sized snapshots of the findings of ongoing and completed research using linked administrative data.
At ADR UK, our goal is to enable greater access to public sector administrative data for research to inform policy that works better for all. Sharing the findings of the research we enable is key to achieving this, so that everyone from government decision makers to members of the public can find out what the data tells us, and where change could help to improve lives.
