They commissioned primary research with citizens to:
- Explore participants attitudes towards government-held data being shared for digital identity verification purposes.
- Develop a nuanced understanding of how participants perceptions of, and expectations for, data sharing change depending on the level of data sharing – where the minimum level would be a ‘yes’/‘no’ check.
- Explore the level of transparency citizens want in relation to data sharing for digital identity.
- Understand the attitudes of distinct groups who are likely to feel differently about data sharing, in particular, those who are disabled, digitally excluded, on lower incomes and/or from ethnic minority backgrounds.
