The Administrative Data Research Initiative promotes the use of administrative data, information collected by governments or firms and reused for research and evaluation.

Intermediaries can help data users navigate barriers to access. ADRI maintains a directory of these intermediaries, along with guides and standards that support sound data governance.

The ADRI Discovery Page is a place for researchers to go find examples of functional intermediaries, as well as sort through by type of intermediary and resources such as guides, standards, and templates, as well as by topic. Topics include health, housing, workforce, and education data.
