Consent to link

We also sought to develop the ability to link social survey data with other data sources by including a question about ‘consent to link’ to the key social surveys that are carried out in Wales.

This will enable the data to be linked, with appropriate consent, with other data in secure environments and again maximise the benefits obtained from collecting this information.

The question asks survey respondents their consent to link their survey answers to other records held about them for research purposes.
