Using administrative data held by DWP as an alternative sampling frame for the Family Resources Survey
SummaryThe Family Resources Survey (FRS) is the leading UK household survey for the collection of private household income. The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) is currently considering the extent to which their administrative data can be used to develop an alternative sampling frame for the FRS. This article summarises the major findings of this research, comparing the current sampling frame for the FRS, using the small‐users Postcode Address File (PAF), with suitable administrative data sources. The findings offer important considerations for how UK household surveys might be sampled in the future using administrative data sources.
