  • Release date: 31 March 2014
The aim of the report was to make recommendations on the best way to establish a technical and procedural infrastructure to maximise access to potentially disclosive data on Wales.

The report was designed to:

  • identify stakeholder needs with regard to access to detailed administrative and survey data for research purposes
  • review the existing options for making data available to researchers
  • make recommendations to Welsh Government (WG) on improving data access for researchers both within and outside WG; taking into account situations where data must remain within WG for legal or practical reasons; as well as those where data can be made available by specialist organisations outside WG.
