4th International Conference on Administrative Data Research
9 - 11 December 2019

Cardiff, Wales, UK
Call for Abstracts is NOW OPEN!
Public Data for Public Good
The use of administrative data and the ability to link records at an individual level to produce empirically based insights, serves to effect positive change for public good through evidence based policy making. The increasing availability of government data for research is an important trend enabling population data science to penetrate deeper than ever before into social and economic issues. However, the use of these vast data resources is still in its infancy with considerable challenges to overcome. This year, the 4th International ADR Conference aims to address such challenges towards lessening the gap between theory and practice.
