The course will offer a theoretical and practical introduction to accessing and working with linked administrative data, covering topics including: ethics and confidentiality, public engagement, the access process, researcher accreditation, working within a safe setting, and potential issues.
There will be sessions on: indexing, linking and joining datasets; working with dates and times; an introduction to descriptive and inferential statistics for administrative data; and methods for dealing with missing data. There will also be sessions on how to apply for access to linked data, and secure data access within a safe setting, as well as the ethical, confidentiality and disclosure issues around using this type of data. A data showcase session from data controllers will give a flavour of the type of data that is available. Current researchers will highlight their research using linked administrative data and describe the advantages of this approach, as well as the problems they have encountered and the lessons learned.
