EUSS Data Linkage 

Stephen Drinkwater

The EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS) Data Linking Project is a project funded by the ESRC from July 2020 to October 2022, born out of the need to improve the evidence base on EU citizens in Wales who are part of the EU Settlement Scheme. Professor Stephen Drinkwater is the academic lead on the project that also involves the Welsh Government.  

It aims to anonymously link Home Office data with other data already held within the SAIL Databank, enabling researchers and policymakers to better understand the experiences of EU citizens with Settled Status, and therefore to develop better informed policy and services that address the needs of this potentially vulnerable population.
