Census data on families and households contains counts of households, data on the distribution of household sizes, and details on the relationships between people within households. Government decisions such as income support and social housing are developed and evaluated using this data. Currently, the Statistics Centre in Abu Dhabi (SCAD) produces household and family information by conducting household surveys through field applications. Many government agencies place a high value on information regarding houses and families. Administrative data gathered for purposes other than producing official statistics, provide new ways of collecting data on individuals, households, and dwellings. This paper aims to construct an admin sources-based household frame for the Abu Dhabi Emirate. In this study, property rental contracts data and water and electricity bills data were used. Further, both datasets were filtered out for Jan 2022, and only the residential category was selected. Though both datasets represent the households, to enrich the spatial and attributes coverage both datasets were spatially joined, and the spatial duplicate records were excluded. The researchers have calculated the difference between the admin-based data and survey data to assess the quality. As a result, we have found that there is a difference of 5% - 10% in 17 enumeration areas, a difference of 10% - 20% in 26 enumeration areas, a difference of 20% - 50% in 62 enumeration areas, and 77 enumeration areas suffer from a huge difference of more than 50%.
