ADRF Network Inaugural Conference: Building Foundations for Data Sharing and Ethical Use

As surveys continue to experience declining response rates and incur rising costs, the research community from government, business, and academia have been turning to administrative data as a powerful supplement. However, standards for accessing and using administrative data for research purposes are currently not well established in the US. Join the Administrative Data Research Facilities (ADRF) Network, a newly formed collective of professionals, at our inaugural conference to share approaches and foster collaborative opportunities in advancing this emerging field. ​ The conference will kick off Monday afternoon with a colloquium on trust, transparency, and privacy. Tuesday will feature a full day of panels on topics of data access, data sharing, and the science of administrative data research. ​ This event is co-convened by the Office of the Provost at Georgetown University and Actionable Intelligence for Social Policy at the University of Pennsylvania and is sponsored by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. Register here.
