Birmingham City Council research sponsored by Improvement and Efficiency West Midlands (IEWM) into the attitudes of residents to the use of their data for public services. In particular the sharing of their data to be used as a citizen record to help public services be more effective through better tailoring of services.

Overall a mixed response showing that residents need to properly understand the context and recognise that there is something to benefit personally from.
