Two laptops open on a table. The arms of two people can be seen writing on some papers between the laptops.

This report identifies the current barriers to finding and using socio-economic data, to outline an ambition of what an improved data environment could look like and how it might benefit future policy-making.

This research acts as an aspirational paper to stimulate discussion and engagement across the government. We provide a high-level overview of some of the challenges in the sharing and use of socio-economic data and highlight some of the benefits if these problems were addressed.
