Our Director, Professor Vania Sena, will be speaking at the 7th ESRC Research Methods Festival. She will be discussing whether data-driven policy-making is a reality or mirage in Part 2 of the Administrative Data Research.

Administrative data are collected by government departments and other organisations for the purposes of registration, transaction and record keeping, usually during the delivery of a service. As they contain a wealth of information, there has recently been much interest in making use of administrative data for research purposes, particularly by linking different datasets. Following on from Administrative Data Research Part 1, this session will continue with more examples of administrative data research, again with the focus on how the methodological challenges were overcome.

Administrative Data Research Part 2 will include the following topics:

A schools database and linkage to administrative data
Multi-sectoral data linkage for intervention and policy evaluation
