ADRN Conference 2016
London, 3 June
Access to administrative data for research is a positive public good. The de-identification and linking of these records, collected in the course of business by governmental and other bodies, creates a whole new potential for social and economic research and policy evaluation, which up until recently has remained largely unexplored.
The Administrative Data Research Network (ADRN) is a UK-wide initiative, funded by the ESRC in 2013, to facilitate access to linked de-identified administrative data for social and economic research aimed at benefiting society. The results from the Network’s earliest projects were presented at this ADRN Research Conference.

Professor Andrew Morris is Chief Scientist at the Scottish Government Health Directorate, Director of the Usher Institute of Population Health Sciences and Informatics, and Vice Principal of Data Science at the University of Edinburgh.
