Amongst the richest population data in the world.

The richness of SAIL Databank enables important questions to be comprehensively answered. We hold a wealth of population-scaled data, some of which reaches back a quarter of a century or more. We can also improve outcomes further by linking new datasets to our existing, routinely-collected data.


Data privacy and security

As data guardians, protecting the individual identity of person based data plus the overall security of the data stored within SAIL Databank are our number one priority. All proposals to use SAIL Databank data are subject to review by an independent Information Governance Review Panel (IGRP)
