What is the UK Data Service?
Funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), the UK Data Service provides unified access to an extensive and expanding range of high-quality UK and international social, economic and population data – from UK Censuses to government-funded surveys, longitudinal studies and qualitative data.
Why this blog?
The Data Impact blog is run by the UK Data Service and is a hub for researchers, students, communities, policy-makers, government and anyone interested in maximising the impact of social, population and economic data in research and policy.
We hope to:
- encourage debate;
- share innovation and best practice;
- keep the data impact community up to date with news, events and the latest data-driven impactful research and policy making.
