Research

We place emphasis on a multidisciplinary and collaborative approach to research. Our Big Data research employs empirical evidence from large administrative datasets, and our Primary Surveys report on cross-sectional and longitudinal surveys conducted at national, local and workplace levels. Visit our Document Library to see recent examples of our research outputs.

Big data

Many projects have a strong focus on utilising linked administrative data, and in particular the Integrated Data Infrastructure (IDI) and Longitudinal Business Database (LBD). See a quick summary in our Big Data pamphlet.

Integrated Data Infrastructure and Longitudinal Business Database

Primary surveys

We have conducted a number of national, local and workplace surveys; longitudinal, repeated or one-off; collecting quantitative and/or qualitative data. For a quick summary, see our Primary Surveys pamphlet.

Mixed methods

Mixed methods research brings together empirical evidence from large administrative data sets and quantitative and/or qualitative survey data.
