NB-IRDT is a research institute at the University of New Brunswick on the Fredericton campus. We carry out evidence-based research to provide government, academics, and researchers with solid information to inform decisions that affect New Brunswickers. Operating at arms’ length from government, we provide unbiased, scientific results on questions related to health and social issues/prosperity for our generation and those to come.
NB-IRDT provides a central location for researchers to access many provincial administrative health data sets to facilitate research and answer questions that will empower government to stretch healthcare dollars, anticipate the needs of a changing population, and encourage growth. These data sets are also linkable to allow for more research opportunities.
Requesting access to data sets is a complicated process and takes a great deal of time. Researchers who want access to data held at NB-IRDT must go through a strict review process, including a privacy review. Ensuring the privacy and safety of the citizens of New Brunswick is our main concern.

“Those forms you filled in…” Making sense of health inequalities and behaviours using administrative data. Dr. David Wright, Administrative Data Research Centre – Northern Ireland and Queen’s University Belfast, UK.
Dr. Wright is a health researcher and statistician with a background in ecology and epidemiology. He is based within the Administrative Data Research Centre – Northern Ireland where he works with prospective researchers to design studies that fully exploit the depth and quantity of information that government records hold. His current primary research interests are centred on the social and geographic factors that influence people’s health and interactions with the health services. He is also interested in the use of biomarkers to predict progression of diabetic complications.
