EVENT - ADR UK Virtual Half Day event

Date & time

Thursday, April 22, 2021 - 14:00 to 17:30




To mark the end of a successful three-year pilot programme, ADR UK is holding a virtual half-day event to showcase progress in harnessing the potential of administrative data for policy-relevant research.

ADR UK three years in: Harnessing the power of administrative data in the age of Covid-19

ADR UK partners have played an important role in responding to Covid-19 across the UK: enabling access to crucial new datasets for research in the public interest; providing essential analysis of existing data; and contributing to data-led responses to the pandemic by the devolved and UK governments.

Meanwhile, our flagship projects in partnership with devolved and UK government departments and academic institutions are taking leaps and bounds to enable greater access to data in a range of policy areas including crime and justice, education, agriculture, housing and more.

This event is an opportunity to hear from data linkage and research experts from across ADR UK and beyond about their work, both in response to the Covid-19 pandemic and more broadly, what the future holds for administrative data research.

The event has three focused sessions:

13:00-14:00: ADR UK at three: Progress and potential - What ADR UK has achieved since 2018 and what’s yet to come.

  • Chaired by Dr Emma Gordon, Director, ADR UK

14:15-15:15: Data access and the Covid effect - How has the Covid-19 pandemic impacted access to administrative data for policy-relevant research?

  • Chaired by Roger Halliday, Chief Statistician, Scottish Government & Co-Director, ADR Scotland

15:30-16:30: Research for public good - How can and should policymakers, academics, the third sector and the public alike be involved in the use of administrative data for research?

  • Chaired by Ed Humpherson, Director General, Office for Statistics Regulation
