Seminar to introduce data linking work held on the 29 th September 2011 in the Europa Building, Glasgow.
The purpose of the Seminar was to:
- Raise awareness of work underway to develop a Scotland-wide 'Data Linkage Framework for Statistics and Research' which aims to facilitate data linkages within and across sectors. We hope to consulted formally on this framework in the near future, and are very keen that local authorities play an integral role in shaping the framework.
- Raise awareness and to consult on 2 imminent data sharing and data linking projects:
- Using administrative data sources as a potential alternative to the population census.
- Linking social care, housing support and health data.
