Removed datasets

This pages lists some of the datasets that were listed in the Safeguarded or Secure tiers of the CDRC Data Service, and have subsequently been removed from listing.

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 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, by emailing, detailing which expired dataset they are interested in obtaining the data profile for.

GISRUK Data Challenge 2018

We invited researchers intending to register as GISRUK 2018 conference delegates to develop a novel analysis or visualisation of CDRC and associated data, in order to investigate the hypothesis set out in the Economist article “The immigration paradox Explaining the Brexit vote” (Jul 14th 2016) that argues that the rate of change in number of migrants in an area rather than the total headcount influenced the Brexit vote. We provided two sets of data, these two should form the main sources of data for the challenge: CDRC small area predicted ethnicity data from 1998-2017, and a copy of the Electoral Commission's official results of the UK's EU referendum results, by voting area (council areas in Scotland, constituencies in England and Wales, and a single result for Northern Ireland). The latter dataset is obtainable elsewhere, and the former is still available on the CDRC Data Service as a Safeguarded dataset.
