CPRD Ethnicity Records update and HDR UK webinar

CPRD Ethnicity Records update

We are pleased to announce the launch of the latest CPRD Ethnicity Record algorithm derived datasets along with the September 2023 releases of CPRD GOLD and CPRD Aurum. The CPRD Ethnicity Record datasets are comprised of a single derived ethnicity category for each patient in CPRD GOLD and CPRD Aurum.

The Ethnicity Records draw ethnicity data from the primary care databases and, for linkage eligible patients, Hospital Episode Statistics (HES) datasets. 

Reliable and accurate ethnicity data is essential to further understand ethnic inequalities in health and adapt health services to address the needs of underserved ethnic groups.

Further information about CPRD Ethnicity Records, including a link to useful publications, is available on our algorithm derived data web page.

Please contact enquiries@cprd.com if you have any questions.
