New guides on administrative data research methods available
Five guides on administrative data research methods are now available on the NCRM website. The publications cover data quality, legal issues, public engagement, confidentiality of statistical outputs and data linkage.
They were originally produced for the Administrative Data Research Network (ADRN) and are now being hosted on the NCRM EPrints Repository.
Professor David Martin, NCRM Co-Director, said: "Across the UK, there is continued growth in the importance of administrative data and we are pleased to make available some of the great resources from the ADRN."
The five guides are:
- Data quality issues in administrative data
- Legal Issues for ADRN Users
- Developing a Public Engagement Strategy
- Ensuring the confidentiality of statistical outputs from the ADRN
- An Introduction to Data Linkage
The ADRN was a predecessor to ADR UK (Administrative Data Research UK), which enables secure research access to linked public sector data. Follow ADR UK on Twitter.
