The linked consumer registers contain the names and addresses for adults in the UK in annual snapshots from 1997 onwards. They are compiled from reported outputs from linking public versions of the electoral roll and consumer registers (supplied by value-added resellers). The data represent a near-complete coverage of the adult population at an individual level.
Our updated data licence agreements mean that these data, which are used extensively by CDRC to build other data products, are now only available for access by internal CDRC users (staff or students) in GDSL at Liverpool or GSAC at UCL. Interested potential users who are not part of these groups can contact the CDRC PI via the email address listed below - access may be arranged as part of a formal academic collaboration with one of these groups.
Following a recent supplier change, the data is now available up to 2020 and it is anticipated that this will be continued on an annual basis. Due to the imputation process, and with the aim towards continual improvement in the register across all years, each version of the register may be slightly different for older years as well as newer.
One of the inputs into the Linked Consumer Register, the Registers of Scotland, is available via UBDC.
