Retail Business Datasafe

Lead Research Organisation: University College London
Department Name: Geography

Abstract

Today, 'Big' customer retail market data are created in many areas, including grocery retailing, energy, health and wellbeing, insurance, mobile communications and retail banking. Such data represent ever greater proportions of the total data collected about citizens and are almost exclusively accumulated by the private sector. Analysis of such sources can offer many new insights into contemporary lifestyles.

Our vision is to create a service that will open up the data resources routinely collected by the retail business sector to academic research, training and capacity building. Crucially, this will be done in ways that users in academia, business and government will find efficient, effective and safe to use. Retail Business Datasafe (RBDS) will allow users to access new sources of data from organisations, and receive authoritative advice on such data and their quality and the ways in which they can be linked to official surveys, administrative data or social media sources. There will also be a full and novel range of related Big Data research training and capacity building activities, developed in close association with the retail industry.

RBDS will provide focus for ESRC's interests in the retail sector and its commitments to capacity building in relation to Big Data research skills. It will also develop a wider service role for other social science research that will benefit from the availability of consumer data.
RBDS will do this by building upon the recent achievements of the ESRC Retail Research and Data Initiative, in order to develop a sustainable national partnership between the academic, retail and government sectors. This will foster the co-production of skills and knowledge and see the wider deployment of consumer data in academic, business and government research. As such, RBDS will be a strategic and complementary initiative to the ESRC's investments in Big Data centres for administrative and social media data by collating different retail datasets safely and anonymously for research purposes.

In this radical and transformative initiative, RBDS will work with retailers to devise and implement data services that provide safe and effective access for the academic, business and government communities, and engage the retail industry in problems of common concern. The work will build on the recommendations of the Administrative Data Taskforce (ADT) with respect to release, security and anonymisation. It will also link to best practices for scientific analysis and visualisation of retail data in the United States, propelling the UK to world leadership in reuse of consumer data for the public good.

The advent of Big Data in social science applications has led to a growing need for capacity to undertake research using large, complex and linked datasets. To this end, RBDS will develop a range of advanced training and CPD initiatives that will foster collaboration with a full range of academic disciplines, and provide businesses with access to researchers and skills through knowledge exchange opportunities.
RBDS will also facilitate linkage of data generated and held by the UKDS and other ESRC Big Data centres with those from the private sector. A fundamental problem with Big Data arising from retail transactions, in common with many sources, is that their provenance is unknown. RBDS will thus develop methods and use other Data Centre investments to assess the robustness and reliability of retailer data relative to administrative and other official data sources.

RDBS will work with the UK Data Service (UKDS) to preserve data that will provide retailers and academics alike with insights into medium and long term trends in retailing. Its split site location will be shared by the UCL Chorley Institute (an open plan office environment dedicated to multidisciplinary research), in dedicated refurbished space at the University of Liverpool and in the Oxford Institute of Retail Management.

Planned Impact

RBDS will establish an unique and internationally leading collaboration with the retail sector. This will benefit anyone who needs retail data for their research activities, whether interested in the form and function of the retail sector itself (INTERNAL IMPACT) or its wider impacts upon society, for example in health, planning, transport, education provision or policing (EXTERNAL IMPACT).

Academics working in geography, planning, political science, civil engineering/transport, psychology, social medicine, economics or sociology will use the RBDS as their first port of call when needing to source reliable, frequently updated and comprehensive 'Big' retail data of known and acceptable provenance. This will facilitate a step change in the volume and quality of empirical research about retailing and establish UK leadership in this collaborative endeavour.

The best retail data centre in the world will be of obvious benefit to the retail industry, which is worth £300 billion to the UK annually and employs 1 in 9 working people. Benefits will accrue to large and small (SME) retailers alike that access RBDS facilities. These benefits will be augmented where retail businesses enter into collaborative research with academics in different disciplines: this will become much more of a norm with heightened awareness of academic interests in the wake of RBDS outreach activities.

The retail sector is an integral element of a vibrant and fair society. World-leading retail data provision will also benefit users in local and central government, third sector organisations, the NHS, transport companies, law enforcement, and education and training who need to factor in retail's influences upon individual behaviour and lifestyle. Through the supply of the best data to end users in these sectors, RBDS will have wide economic and societal impacts upon planning for retail provision. Likely impacts will include: better understanding the contribution of the retail sector for health and wll-being; improving the effectiveness of public service delivery at the local, regional and national levels; developing energy conservation initiatives; influencing public policy towards the retail sector, nurturing its recovery and contributing to national wealth creation; developing new thinking about the role of the retail sector in urban regeneration and land use change; and rethinking the ways in which third sector and other organisations can use the retail sector to the common good.

The internationally leading service products created by RBDS will develop new knowledge through research in quantitative methods, specifically in establishing the provenance of Big Data and their linkage to official, administrative and social media sources. The international link with best practices in the U.S. will ensure that the impacts of these methodological develoments is felt far beyond the UK.

The predominantly quantitative nature of datasets produced will increase UK capacity in quantitative methods and Big Data analytics, and make this increased capacity more relevant to the needs of the retail industry. At the undergraduate level, RBDS data will reinforce the activities of the Nuffield/ESRC Q-Step centres (including that based at UCL). Continuation of the highly successful Retail Research Masters industrial collaborations will further develop postgraduate training capacity. Channeling resources into the multidisciplinary DTC cohorts at Liverpool and UCL will establish retailing as a prominent ingredient in Ph.D. programmes for the first time in the UK. The programme of short courses will help inculcate quantitative analysis skills that are relevant in recruitment to the retail industry (e.g. retail insight and management) as well as the academic and research sector.

Title CDRC 2017 Calendar 
Description A calendar of 14 CDRC maps and research visualisations created to promote the CDRC service particularly to local authorities. 
Type Of Art Artefact (including digital) 
Year Produced 2016 
Impact This calendar was sent to 400 local authority Chief Execs (200) data partners, prospective data partners and other key contacts, to promote CDRC Maps and CDRC data. The calendar was very well received with positive feedback via social media. 
 
Description Consumer data arise from the everyday interactions between individuals and customer-facing organisations. Today they account for a high and increasing real share of all of the data that are collected about citizens. Uniquely, the Consumer Data Research Centre grant based at UCL and the Universities of Liverpool and Oxford (CDRC-ULO) has demonstrated that consumer data can become an integral part of the UK's social science data infrastructure and make an important contribution to the developing e-Infrastructure RoadMap. Examplar data products include:

- Linked Consumer Registers of the UK adult population, 1998-2016, enabling modelling of neighbourhood measures of population churn and social and spatial mobility.
- A nationwide Internet User Classification of adoption and use of new information and communications technologies.
- Neighbourhood measures of Access to Healthy Assets and Hazards.
- A nationwide network of retail centre footfall estimates, for use alongside consumer catchments and retail area classifications.
- A widely used tool, for estimating the ethnic composition of local communities developed in collaboration with the Office for National Statistics using a unique blend of consumer and social survey consumer sources.

This research has fed the development of the very popular maps.cdrc.ac.uk website (>210k users; >725k pageviews, Feb 2019) and the associated data.cdrc.ac.uk portal. Together these sites present a unique blend of consumer, administrative and conventional statistical sources which are key to understanding what is going on in modern Britain.

These vertically integrated research resources are made available through the three-tier data service provided by CDRC-ULO and CDRC-Leeds (a partner data centre established under Phase 2 under ESRC's Big Data initiative). The three-tiers comprise:
- Open Tier, available to any user (approx 15k registered users, and >1 million pageviews, as of 28/2/19);
- Safeguarded Tier, available upon successful application for research for the public good;
- Secure Tier available to accredited researchers following successful application with access to these data restricted to one of CDRC's secure lab facilities.
A total of 202 initial applications have been received for CDRC-ULO Safeguarded and Secure managed data of which 90 projects have been approved. This has enabled users of the service to conduct path breaking research including

- use of customer loyalty datasets to indicate susceptibility to life threatening disease;
- improving our ability to predict the incidence of severe 'flu episodes and determining the geographical predictors of medication usage across England;
- investigation of paths into home ownership, factors affecting insurance claims behaviour and why people become financially excluded;
- establishing the nature of the relationship between footfall and violence levels to assist police and public health teams;
- deployment of smart card data to devise socially inclusive public transport strategies;
- devising time-of-day population statistics for use in the health, emergency/crisis response and national security sectors.
Exploitation Route In association with CDRC-Leeds, CDRC-ULO has had a transformative impact upon the adoption and use of consumer data, alone or in combination with other official statistical and administrative sources. CDRC-ULO's contribution to this activity has resulted in 90 approved safeguarded/secure tier projects from 42 institutions (as of 28th Feb 2019). In addition, CDRC-ULO's highly successful Masters Research Dissertation Programme has offered 97 industrial projects since 2014 with successful applicants coming from 18 universities and 8 disciplines. Between 2014-18, 458 applications have been received and to date in 2019 we have already received 176 applications continuing the upward trend. Together these initiatives have enabled CDRC-ULO to both chart the emergence and evolution of new forms and sources of Big Data, engage postgraduate students and junior researchers in their deployment and use, and enable established researchers to undertake substantial research projects using data sources that have hitherto remained unavailable to academic research.

CDRC-ULO has established and maintained data supply relations with the retailing and general business and third sectors, and has developed world-leading expertise in the creation and maintenance of data infrastructure based in large part upon such sources. At the time of writing, this has led to end user adoption and use of CDRC-ULO data products by users beyond academia in local and metropolitan government, regional transport provision, third sector social inequality studies, regional theatre productions and ethnic minority engagement with sport.

Description The availability of CDRC-ULO consumer data are having a transformative effect upon end users in social policy, medicine, public health, transport, personal finance, and local authority planning. These transformations are achieved through our end users making use of the indicators CDRC-ULO has compiled showing what is going on in modern Britain, by visualising the UK's consumer landscape, and by creating innovative software solutions for integrating and augmenting the UK's mixed Big Data economy (indicators.cdrc.ac.uk). For example: • our London geodemographic data products and maps include output area classifications (LOAC, TOAC, LWPZ), population churn and modelled ethnicity and are being utilised within the public sector for decision making by the Greater London Authority (as well as a number of the Capital's constituent Boroughs) and for planning purposes by Transport for London. CDRC Open geodemographic classifications provide local authorities (including those in London, Northumberland, Leicestershire, East Sussex, Kingston and Southampton) with free classifications for use in resource allocation and neighbourhood profiling that are alternatives to commercial solutions which might otherwise cost taxpayers many hundreds of thousands of pounds. Most of these classifications are fully Open - that is, the methodology is fully documented and end users can (and have) amended the underlying software and code to develop their own bespoke classifications; • a customised version of the Internet User Classification 2018 has been created with a partner 'High Street Retailer' for their internal operational planning; • our Access to Healthy Assets and Hazards classification has been used by Public Health England within their Fingertips tool that is available to all local authorities in England; • CDRC Mapping technology has been used in the Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation's mapping tool, Southwark Council interactive map showing traffic count measurements, and England & Wales Cricket Board's South Asian heatmap as part of their youth engagement strategy; and • CDRC software has been used by the Greater London Authority to estimate the changing distributions of ethnic minorities across the Capital, in order to better cater for community needs and integration. It has also been used by Birmingham Women's and Children's NHS Foundation to better understand the incidence of tumours in children and by Public Health England to trace the probable origins of new bacterial strains carried by humans. It was also used by Camden Council to demonstrate even-handedness in the rehousing of residents from similarly clad structures to Grenfell Tower. The CDRC-ULO service has responded to strong and growing demands from local authorities, schools, the private sector and not-for-profits for access to its data holdings. Since our launch in October 2015 data.cdrc.ac.uk has received in excess of 1 million pageviews and nearly 15k users have registered to download data (>270k dataset downloads). Local authorities and schools are key users of our data. Maps.cdrc.ac.uk has received >725k pageviews attracting >210k users and maps have been widely featured in the media as well as being used extensively by local government, public bodies and schools with content featuring in GCSE and A-Level course books and exams. Examples of specific end uses for CDRC data applications include: • use of customer loyalty datasets to indicate susceptibility to life threatening disease by health care professionals; • ascertaining the geographical predictors of health outcomes through the Public Health England 'Fingertips' resource; • integrated analysis of smart card and statistical data by a regional transport provider to devise socially inclusive public transport strategies; • use of footfall data alongside other consumer and survey data by retailers to better understand micro-site location in high streets and other retail areas; • devising time-of-day population statistics for use in the health, emergency/crisis response and national security sectors. CDRC-ULO coordinates a full programme of short courses, online tutorials, a collaborative Masters Research Dissertation Programme with industry that has directly led to employment opportunities of dozens of graduates, and a series of collaborative knowledge exchange events and data partner forums with collaboration with industry. CDRC-ULO has engaged with 90+ external organisations since launch, of whom 22 are actively sharing data with the service (some providing multiple data products). Interaction with external organisations is achieved using externally provided data in PhD and Masters Research Dissertations. Organisations have partnered with us to access world-class research expertise and to work on collaborative projects focused on finding solutions to practical business problems.

Title Accessibility Estimator 
Description The accssibility estimator provides codes and detailed descriptions of steps to measure dynamic public transport accessibility to a range of urban services at high temporal and spatial resolutions. The tool builds on and links existing Open Source tools including OneBusAway GTFS converter (https://github.com/OneBusAway/onebusaway-uk), OpenStreetMap (https://www.openstreetmap.org), Python geospatial libraries and the OpenTripPlanner (see http://www.opentripplanner.org/) routing engine. Our solution accepts commonly used UK-wide administrative datasets as input data, notably ATCO-CIF bus timetables, Ordnance Survey ITN transport network data, OS Points of Interest and NAPTAN databases. As a result, our accessibility estimator provide a novel, integrated processing solution tailored to the data and resarch environment of UK transport authorities, thus adding value to existing research infrastructure. 
Type Of Material Improvements to research infrastructure 
Year Produced 2018 
Provided To Others? Yes  
Impact Using the accessibility estimator, we were able to develop the first dynamic accessibility measures for the West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA). Such measures are valuable for transport planning and urban research and were received by our partners, Transport for West Midlands, with great interest. The work is transferable to most other UK transport authorities, which operate within very similar data and research environments. We are hoping to extend this work to develop further, policy-relevant and novel indicators measuring accessibility vis-a-vis mobility needs in a dynamic way.

Title Data linkage pilot 
Description A github repository documenting the steps and data needs to link smartcard data transactions recorded according to the UK-wide ITCO format. Using this repository, it will be possible for the first time to turn ITCO public transport smartcard transaction data into research resources under certain conditions, adding value to exisiting research infrastructures held by transport authorities. The repository is a pilot and consitutes a first step towards potentially generating a robust, generalisable and scalable toolset to process 'big' smartcard data over long time horizons for research purposes. 
Type Of Material Improvements to research infrastructure 
Year Produced 2018 
Provided To Others? Yes  
Impact The pilot framework enabled us to model origin-destination flows of different types of bus passengers at different times of the day over a period of 2.5 years. This model informed our partners, Transport for West Midlands (TfWM), about the detailed usage of the concessionary scheme for the region's public transport network and contextualise part of the observed decline in bus patronage. TfWM had not been able to analyse the data in this way before due to the absence of such methods. The pilot is transferable to other UK transport authorities collecting data under the ITCO format to help them understand trends in public transport patronage.

Title A classification of Multi-dimensional Open Data of Urban Morphology (MODUM) 
Description The MODUM classification is a national classification for England and Wales at the Output Area level (2011 Census Geography), describing the typology of neighbourhoods based on a number of built environment and urban morphology attributes. The classification groups neighbourhoods into 8 distinct clusters, each described by a pen portrait. More details can be found in the relevant academic paper (Alexiou, A., Singleton, A., and Longley, P.A., 2016. A Classification of Multidimensional Open Data for Urban Morphology. Built Environment, Volume 42:3, pp. 382-395). The development of MODUM illustrates that the production and analysis of a classification using Big and Open data can offer unique insights into some aspects of geodemographic structure of urban areas. The results capture through the multidimensionality of the data both microscopic and macroscopic identifiers of urban morphology. It is currently freely available to download through the Consumer Data Research Centre website. 
Type Of Material Database/Collection of data 
Year Produced 2018 
Provided To Others? Yes  
Impact Following the publication, a number of potential users have been interested in the product in the past, which they acquired through personal communication. Purposes vary, but most commonly the classification would be used as a simplified structure of the physical properties of geographic space that can be used to explore correlations with other spatial phenomena, potentially in a variety of applications, from real estate and house prices to health and wellbeing. Since it has been made available online, it could be used by urban planners and investors in the built environment to identify the areas in which the physical preconditions exist for neighbourhood renewal or upscaling, although individual impacts would be difficult to identify.

Title CDRC Population Churn Index 
Description This index created by the CDRC provides an estimate of the proportion of households that have changed between the end of 2016 and the start of each of each year going back to 1998. The estimates were built from linking administrative and consumer data, including electoral registers, consumer registers and land registry house sale data. This data enables researchers to explore annual variations in neighbourhood change at a small area geography. Crucially it also enables researchers to focus on yearly data rather than relying on decadal census data to estimate change. It is even possible to observe trends that have occurred since the collection of the most recent census. This is a safeguarded data product available by application.

We responded to feedback given to us from British Academy at the mid-point and towards the end of the design and integration stages.
Collaborator Contribution They commissioned research to collect data on language teaching provision in the UK, at schools and universities, focusing on Arabic as a first language to be mapped. They passed the research to us along with guidance as to how it would be presented, but left us largely free to visualise the data in a way we felt was most effective. They provided additional feedback during the design and testing phase, and also passed the final site to external academics and others in the language research space, to fact-check and improve on the data. The project was due to be formally launched in February although this was slightly postponed for operational reasons.

Title Bus patronage dashboard 
Description A web-based, interactive dashboard for the West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA) visualising bus patronage trends and patterns by passenger travelling under the English National Concessionary Travel Scheme (ENCTS). The dashboard allows users to monitor trends across the 2.5 year linked study period of the project and query details of passenger journeys, including their origins and destinations. The dashboard visualises the results thus sharing how the ENCTS scheme is used in a publicly accessible manner. Dynamic accessibility indicators and historical and future forecasts of eligibility to ENCTS are also included in the dashboard. Query results can be downloaded as CSV files. The entire software is Open Source and can be downloaded from a Github repository. A detailed installation and user manual is provided as part of the repository. A separate, more granular version has been developed for the exclusive use of Transport for West Midlands (TfWM) only. This dashboard allows TfWM to query further journey details, e.g. filtering origin-destination flows by passenger demographics or time of day of travel. This version of the dashboard includes extended functionalities and granularities, and since these imply that low counts can be queried (not meeting standars of disclosure control appropriate for public use), this secure dashbaord has been shared with TfWM only through secure data transfer and a separate installation and user manual. Meeting data protection requirements, this secure dashboard is run in the secure environment of TfWM. 
Type Of Technology Webtool/Application 
Year Produced 2018 
Impact The dashboard provides a way for Transport for West Midlands (TfWM) to monitor demand under the ENCTS with great detail. The dasboard was designed with input by TfWM, who expressed that this software provides an accessible and informative evidence base for both strategic and tactical activities valuable for transport planning and wider policy considerations in relation to the ENCTS concessionary scheme.

Results and Impact Oxford's annual 3-day residential programme on retail location & customer analysis takes on the Challenges and Opportunities facing retail location analysis and customer insight professionals. Within the context of some of the most significant changes to be facing the retail sector in a generation, there is an urgent requirement for firms to better understand the ways in which the location, role and performance of their physical asset base are changing. Neither stores nor high streets are dead, but stores need investment, focus and creativity in order to make them attractive places to shop; and the places in which retail stores have been traditionally found require profound re-evaluation. This has implications for decision makers in retail enterprises, real estate as well as in local and central government.
