Information on the registration and ordering process is available by selecting one of the following options:

UK university or college users
Other UK users

If you are in the UK and your organisation is part of the UK Access Management Federation (UKAMF) and on this list of federation members, you can register with us using the username and password issued to you by your organisation. 

If you work in local government, for a charity, are a personal user, or your institution is not part of the UKAMF you can also register with us. However, you will first have to apply for a UK Data Archive username and password.

When these have been supplied to you, you will then need to complete the UK Data Service registration process as detailed for UK university or college users.

Note that you will have to select the 'UK Data Archive' as your organisation each time you log in and when you initially register with us.

Once registration is complete you will be able to download/order data from us.

Restrictions on access:

Due to the data redistribution licence agreements we have with data providers/service funders, registration will not permit access to some of our resources, for example:

  • international macrodata available via UKDS.stat (some datasets are restricted to UK Further/Higher education, others are open to all)

Details of any restrictions on access are available from the 'Access conditions' section within each Discover record.

Non UK users
