The CDRC creates, supplies, maintains and delivers data to a wide range of users who wish to conduct research using big consumer data. We provide data with three different levels of access:
Open data service
Data which are freely available to all for any purpose following a simple registration. Products include those created and acquired by the CDRC and products where the CDRC have added value. For the complete list visit open datasets.
|Indices of Deprivation||Temporal OAC (2001-2011)|
|Output Area Classification (2011)||Internet User Classification|
|Access to Healthy Assets & Hazards Index (AHAH)|
|Synthetic Population Data|
Safeguarded data service
Data to which access is restricted because of license conditions, but where data are not considered ‘personally-identifiable’ or otherwise sensitive. Access is available via a remote service with registration and project approval requirements. For the complete list visit safeguarded datasets. To apply please look at each individual dataset and following the "Apply for this data" link there.
Secure data service
Controlled data: data which need to be held under the most secure conditions with highly restricted access. Access is available via secure services at CDRC sites, with registration and project approval requirements. For the complete list visit secure datasets. To apply please look at each individual dataset and following the "Apply for this data" link there.
Many of the datasets that we resupply from data suppliers (as opposed to those we have created or derived ourselves) come with a time-limited upstream data licence agreement which means we are no longer able to supply them on the CDRC Data Service once the agreements expire, and normally are required to delete all copies we hold ourselves.
In some cases, researchers may wish to link to the URL for our datasets. Once they expire, then URL is redirected to this static page which summarises the removed datasets. Interested parties can, on application, obtain a data profile summary document (where available) which has further details and statistics about the dataset.
