Improving research by improving access: the Secure Data Service and official statistics research20-Oct-10Seminar Room 2N2.4.16, UK Data Archive, University of Essex, Colchester

As social scientists, you know that access to restricted government statistics can greatly enhance your research findings. But there are very real public concerns about the sensitive or potentially disclosive information contained in that data. The question is how to balance the needs of researchers while safeguarding the confidentiality of individuals?

In recognition of World Statistics Day, join the UK Data Archive for a presentation and discussion on these issues, including an overview of the legal framework and information on the new Secure Data Service (SDS).

This event will take place at 15.00 on Wednesday 20 October and is open to students and members of staff.
