You must be affiliated with an approved organisation, currently restricted to public sector organisations (e.g. universities, NHS, local authorities and the Scottish Government), throughout your research project. Researchers from other organisations can partner with an approved institution or the eDRIS team for analyses to be carried out on their behalf.
Administrative data is information created when people interact with public services, such as schools, the NHS, courts or the benefits system. This data is collated by the government and also includes basic information about people in the UK, for example notifications of births, deaths and marriages, the electoral register, and national censuses.
