Case Study: Department for the Economy NI

How DfE used mobile network data to help plan for Brexit

The impact of the border between Ireland and Northern Ireland has been one of the most complex and well-documented challenges arising from Brexit.

The Department for the Economy (DfE) needed to understand who was crossing the border on a daily basis, where they were going, how frequently and why. Citi Logik used anonymised mobile network data from Vodafone to give the DfE a representative picture.

A summary:

  • Anonymised mobile network data

  • Large dataset containing billions of events

  • DfE was able to spot patterns / extrapolate 

  • Results used by Office of National Statistics

  • Rigorous and repeatable study
