“Administrative data are information collected, used, and stored primarily for administrative (i.e., operational), rather than research, purposes. These data can be [a]…source of information for use in research and impact evaluation. Specific requirements and processes for obtaining data vary by data source. To assist researchers in screening potential data sources, [the author] has cataloged a number of key US data sets. The catalog documents procedures on how to access data based on information provided by the originating agencies.” (website)
