Presented by Ian Thomas.

Administrative data are generated by organisations as they go about their day-to-day operations, for example school exam results or healthcare data. The aim of this session is to demonstrate how these data, particularly by linking them together, can be used to generate evidence to help end homelessness. I use examples of research conducted by the Administrative Data Research Centre Wales using administrative data, including analysis of the dynamics of homelessness, improving our ability to measure the scale of homelessness through data linkage to health data, and exploring the consequences of homelessness on school absenteeism. I discuss some of the issues faced in undertaking these analyses, and how current administrative data could be better used to generate insights into homelessness.
