SEARCH FOR SOCIAL CARE DATA GUIDE TO SEARCHING FOR DATA
The Catalogue of Social Care Data collects and collates information about social care data in one site to encourage:
- The use of existing social care data and comparisons across datasets
- The filling of research gaps which might have escaped notice due to the fragmented nature of social care data
- Harmonisation of UK social care data (including increased use of relevant standard measures)
- Researchers from other fields to use social care data (leading to increased cross-specialism discoveries)
