The UK's largest digital collection of social sciences and population research data

Funders and partners

We are funded by UK Research and Innovation through the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), and, as lead partner delivering the UK Data Service, we bring together several important past ESRC investments including the Economic and Social Data Service, Census Programme and Question Bank.

As advocates of the reuse of data for research, we get additional funding to collaborate with other universities and archives on specific projects.

UK partners

We work closely with a large range of academic departments, organisations, research and data centres across the UK.
