ADR UK (Administrative Data Research UK) is inviting applications for funding to conduct policy-relevant research using ADR England flagship datasets. APPLICATIONS NOW CLOSED.
Administrative data is information created when people interact with public services, such as schools, the NHS, the courts or the benefits system, and collected by government. This wealth of data has the potential to create important knowledge, providing powerful insights into our society and in turn pointing to areas where change is needed. Find out more about administrative data.
Applicants must use ADR England flagship datasets for the fellowship. You can find an overview of these datasets in the ADR England flagship datasets brochure.
This funding opportunity includes ringfenced funding for one fellowship using each of the following priority datasets.
Education and Child Health Insights from Linked Data (ECHILD) – England: The ECHILD research database includes linked health, education and social care data for around 20 million children born from 1984 onwards. It can be used to better understand how education affects children’s health and how health affects children’s education.
Ministry of Justice Data First: Cross-Justice System – England and Wales: Data First is an ambitious data-linking, sharing and research programme led by the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) and funded by ADR UK. The latest release from Data First is the creation of a cross-justice system linked dataset. This new linked dataset brings together data from the civil and family courts with different areas of the criminal justice system for the first time. The dataset provides researchers with a unique opportunity to study interactions across the justice system, and to deliver vital evidence on individual journeys across the justice system.
