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. This data is only available in the secure lab at the Jill Dando Institute in London.
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. Therefore, the previous version (https://data.cdrc.ac.uk/dataset/linked-consumer-registers-1997-2016) remains as a data product, for research reproducibility purposes. All new projects should however aim to use the version here.
One of the inputs into the Linked Consumer Register, the Registers of Scotland, is available via UBDC.
