In this event, we discuss how linked administrative data at a government level can have a profound impact on homelessness research and policy design.
Linked administrative data is a powerful tool for understanding the causes of homelessness, as well as targeting and evaluating interventions. In the shadow of the pandemic, the imperative to make full use of these sources of evidence to improve outcomes is more critical than ever. Chaired by Dr Emma Gordon, Director of ADR UK (Administrative Data Research UK), a panel of data linkage experts will discuss the possibilities.
