New Article on the Use of Administrative Data

A recent article by Graeme Laurie and Leslie Stevens has been published in the Journal of Law and Society. “Developing a Public Interest Mandate for the Governance and Use of Administrative Data in the United Kingdom” addresses the legal and ethical uncertainties surrounding the use of administrative data for research.

Drawing upon best practices developed by Laurie and Stevens in previous data initiatives and engagement with research communities, the article suggests a problematic organizational culture as the most significant barrier to proportionate and good governance of administrative data, and offers a novel means for data custodians to identify key considerations related to sector-specific practices.
