Using administrative data for research: a brief introduction
University College London
Dr Pia Hardelid and Dr Linda Wijlaars
Intermediate (some prior knowledge)
Administrative data, sometimes referred to as routinely collected data, provide large and rich datasets for research. However, they require careful cleaning, management and interpretation. This online course is for those who are interested in whether they might want to use administrative data for research and would like a short introduction to this topic. The course will use administrative health data (national hospital inpatient data – the Hospital Episode Statistics database) as an example, but the principles apply to all administrative data.
