This event is part of techUK's demystifying data in local public services series.
Data linkage provides insight, informs policy change, and helps answer society’s most important questions through increasing the utility of data.
Join Nadira Hussain, Director of leadership development and research at Socitm, Luke Studden, Data Integration and Development Manager at GeoPlace and Riley Marsden, Business Intelligence Technical Solutions Lead, Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council as they describe and demonstrate how utilising Unique Property Reference Numbers (UPRNs) can provide a wealth of insight and enablement for local authority decision making and projects. The session will walk you through what the UPRN / Address data actually is, how you can use it and access it as well as some of the real-world applications and benefits it has created.
Nadira will discuss how Socitm is supporting the ethical use of data and data insights effectively to make informed decisions and support ethical change as part of wider place-based post covid recovery. Luke and Riley will discuss how UPRNs facilitate data linking within a local authority context and how this can be used to create a rich picture of intelligence for analytical and project needs.
