Using Administrative Data in Stratification and Mobility Research

Friday, 20 July 2018: 15:30-17:20
RC28 Social Stratification (host committee)

Language: English

In many countries there is increasing interest in using administrative data in stratification and mobility studies. Existing research and data access initiatives have focused primarily on government administrative data, but administrative data from private sector organisations and not for profits also have research potential. This session invites papers using government and non-government administrative data in mobility and stratification studies. We are especially interested in studies that highlight the particular value of administrative data for stratification research beyond, or in conjunction with, more established approaches.
