The Data Impact Blog is run by the UK Data Service and is a hub for researchers, students, communities, policy-makers, government and anyone with an interest in maximising the impact of social, population and economic data in research and policy.
We hope to encourage debate, share best practice and keep the data impact community up to date with news, events and the latest data-driven impactful research and policy making. If you would like to contribute, or have ideas for a blog, please contact the blog editor Victoria Moody or tweet us @UKDSImpact.
The UK Data Service website will be undergoing an upgrade to our systems from Thursday 23 August until Wednesday 29 August inclusive. Some parts of the current website, account area and data catalogue will be unavailable. Normal services are expected to resume on 30 August 2018. We apologise for any inconvenience.
