1 Data without Boundaries project A short overview of outputs & future perspectives Roxane Silberman DwB coordinator ESS workshop, Luxembourg 25-26 September, 2014

2 Welcome! 4th DwB Training Course on European Official Microdata Within the framework of the FP7 Data without Boundaries project Prepared under coordination of GESIS with CNRS-RQ, INSEE, UKDA, SORS and ADP/University of Ljubljana Hosted in Ljubljana by SORS and ADP/University of Ljubljana Support from Eurostat Campus file provided for the course with the support of Eurostat and 14 countries September 20144th DwB Training Course2

3 Agenda Short introduction on DwB project and training courses Part I Overview of European Data from Official Statistics and regulation for Data Access Part II Introduction to EU-LFS Part III Practical traning session September 20144th DwB Training Course3

4 Data without Boundaries – DwB A short overview

5 DwB: A European project (FP7) The overall objective is to increase the use of official microdata Very rich resources within the European Research Both national and European However still underused due to a number of difficulties for accessing and using these data Particularly for highly detailed microdata and transnational access September 20144th DwB Training Course5

6 Raising a set of objectives for the project Ease access to the information Prepare a single point of access in a current fragmented landscape Language issues Metadata issues Access issues both with legal frameworks, interpretation of legal frameworks and accreditation procedures Use of data (support use of data, train the researchers …) September 20144th DwB Training Course6

7 This is achieved bringing together different communities 28 partners from 3 communities, National Statistical Institutes, Data Archives for Social Sciences, Universities involved in methodology for anonymisation o Also involving the researchers as final users (Users conference, training sessions, calls for projects) The overall idea is to bring two communities together CESSDA: Council of Social Science Data Archives ESS: European Statistical System o ESS: the network of NSIs lead by Eurostat main objective: harmonize and enhance production of official statistics in Europe o CESSDA: umbrella organization for social science data archives across Europe main objective: improve access to data for researchers and students September 20144th DwB Training Course7

8 Major characteristics of DwB Began May 2011, total duration 48 months Project lead: Roxane Silberman, RQ/CNRS 28 partners 12 work packages September 20144th DwB Training Course8

9 Structure of DwB The work and work packages of DwB are organized into three blocks:  A: Front office: Building a single point of access and metadata issues  B: Access to OS microdata: accreditation, Eu-RAN feasibility, Secure Data Centre issues, calls for transnational access  C: Communication and training: promote discussions, increase knowledge and reach agreements September 20144th DwB Training Course9

10 Some outputs from the project Front office Development of technical solutions usable for different metatadata standards to harvest OS metadata from NSIs that will prepare single point of access aligned with the CESSDA catalogue Metadata bases CIMES for national official statistics also including information on accreditation procedures MISSY for friendly metadata for Eurostat microdata September 2014 4th DwB Training Course 10

11 Some outputs from the project Access Towards standards for accreditation procedures o Based on discussions with the different stakeholders An architecture for a European Remote Access Network for access to highly detailed microdata within the current legal frameworks o Based on discussions with the RDCs and the researchers o A pilot and a prototype Support for research projects with 7 RDCs from 4 countries September 20144th DwB Training Course11

12 Some outputs from the project Enlarging the discussions and involving the whole communities DwB website Training courses for the usage of specific data sources (e.g. SILC, LFS, AES, Censuses) Users conferences Conferences between data producers and archives as well as with data users o European Data Access Forum o Regional workshops on access and cooperation Staff visits in RDCs September 20144th DwB Training Course12

13 Vision for the Future: Services for OS Microdata in Cooperation

14 Objectives To provide a comprehensive overview of available official data in Europe To provide structured metadata and user friendly routines for Eurostat data and census data September 20144th DwB Training Course14

15 Mission 1.Comprehensive web service 2.Promote use of OS-microdata 3.Continuously improve data access September 20144th DwB Training Course15

16 Mission 1 – Web Service Web service will function as a one-stop-shop for researcher needs regarding European OS-microdata This web service will be comprised of: a) extensive metadata for European OS-microdata b) An online library hosting technical reports, survey instruments and scientific papers on OS-microdata c) Routines for data preparation and analysis d) An interactive platform where users can seek advice from experts, discuss with other users and provide input September 20144th DwB Training Course16

17 Mission 1 – Web Service September 20144th DwB Training Course17

18 September 20144th DwB Training Course18

19 September 20144th DwB Training Course19

20 Mission 2 – Promote use of OS-data Organize introductory and advanced training courses on methodological and substantive research questions based on these data Host user conferences where researchers can present their findings, connect with other researchers and discuss data needs with producers Incentivize research by implementing a research award, subsidizing data use for young researchers, etc. September 20144th DwB Training Course20

21 Mission 3 – Improve Data Access Broadening access to integrated European official microdata, e.g. Time Budget Survey, Census Microdata Lobby for expansion of transnational access networks and harmonization of conditions of use throughout Europe Assist researchers seeking transnational access by informing them on access conditions, access sites and application procedures September 20144th DwB Training Course21

22 Current opportunities for researchers On site access to official microdata across Europe Transnational remote access to Secure Data Centres European Users Conference Training Courses September 20144th DwB Training Course22

23 On site access to official microdata across Europe Transnational remote access to Safe Data Centres Continuing call for research proposals Grant transnational access to confidential data; either on site (WP 9) or via remote access (WP 10) Application is reviewed by a selection panel If successful, travel costs and accomodation are covered by DwB Call closes October 15, 2014 September 20144th DwB Training Course23

24 European Users Conference DwB helps finance the European Users Conference for EU-LFS and EU-SILC; a biennial meeting organized by GESIS in cooperation with Eurostat Offer a platform to discuss research findings and research needs EUC brings together researchers and data producers from all over Europe Next: Spring, 2015 in Mannheim, Germany September 20144th DwB Training Course24

25 Training Courses Objective: Foster use of OS microdata by Improving knowledge about microdata from official statistics in Europe and their potential for social research Practicing data analysis using a major data source from European official statistics Training courses are conceptualized and conducted jointly by CESSDA members and NSIs or Eurostat September 20144th DwB Training Course25

26 Training Courses Next courses European census data, January 2015, Barcelona Adult Education Survey, February 2015, Athens September 20144th DwB Training Course26
