The potential for data collected to be linked and used in research has led to growing academic and policy interest in the public acceptability of data linkage. There is also increasing recognition of the importance of ensuring a social licence for using linked data for research purposes. This report aims to review the literature which explores public attitudes to data and data science practices.
