Who can access datasets?
Our datasets are potentially available for statistical purposes to researchers working within academic institutions, government agencies and the wider health sector, subject to certain conditions.
Safety and security
Good statistical practice and our ethical obligations to survey participants require that information collected through our surveys, particularly personal information that could be used to identify individuals, is treated as confidential and stored securely.
We must balance the benefits of Microdata access with our obligations to hold data securely and protect the confidentiality of information supplied by individuals. Failing to adequately protect individual information potentially reduces public trust and confidence in us, and wider government, which in turn affects the ongoing quality of IP and data collections.
