This dataset is one of the outputs from an Ordnance Survey funded project to link Unique Property Reference Number in OS AddressBase Plus to DLUHC’s EPC data and to Land Registry’s Price Paid Data Set.
The linkage to the EPC data had a 96% match rate. The linkage was designed to allow comparison with DLUHCs own linkage (93% match rate), and to allow for comparison and identification of barriers and issues to accurate matching.
The data set has three fields: the EPC unique identifier; the UPRN; and the Unique Street Reference Number (USRN).
The linkage was created using a rules-based methodology, which is very labour intensive, but a more precise way of creating linkages, than other methodologies.
