Annual Report 2022-2023
Key developments across the partnership
This year has seen ADR UK realising many ambitions, as work has continued across the partnership to achieve our shared mission. From facilitating access to new datasets, to building research capability around them, we’re working to maximise the value of administrative data for public good research.
A year in review
This year has seen a range of achievements and milestones across the ADR UK partnership. Explore an interactive timeline for an overview of the activities.
New and emerging datasets
This year has seen a number of developments for ADR UK datasets across the partnership, including newly-available datasets for research, emerging data that will soon be available, and new updates.
We're also improving researchers' experiences of accessing administrative data. Find out how.
We define our public engagement as a purposeful set of activities designed to promote an ongoing dialogue with the public about administrative data research, driven by active listening and responding. This enables us to enrich understanding for everyone and maximise the impact of research, ensuring activities are meaningful and mutually beneficial.
ADR UK Ambassadors
ADR UK Ambassadors are people working in and around government and academia, who are committed to increasing and improving the use of administrative data research to inform policy and practice. They use their expertise, networks and influence across a range of topics to advocate for better and more routine use of data to solve pressing challenges.
Building and sustaining relationships across the research community has a fundamental role to play in ADR UK’s ability to fulfil its mission. This type of engagement ensures researchers’ perspectives are fully represented in our work, enabling us to support public good research in the most effective way. This past year has seen us make great strides in this work, as we have grown our relationships across the sector and sought new ways to engage.
The year ahead
Over the next year, we will look to publish learning resources online and facilitate courses on specific administrative datasets. This will make datasets more accessible for research use, while at the same time supporting researchers to develop their skills. Our ultimate aim to maximise the value of these datasets for the public good, and supporting more researchers to be able to use them effectively is an important step in our mission.
