1 Integrated European Census Microdata 5 th DwB Training, Barcelona, 21-23 January 2015

2 Welcome! 5 th DwB Training Course on European Official Microdata Prepared under coordination of GESIS with CNRS-RQ, INSEE, UKDA and IECM at CED Hosted in Barcelona by CED at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona January 20155th DwB Training Course2

3 Program Short introduction on DwB project Part I Overview of European Data from Official Statistics and Regulation for Data Access Part II Introduction to Integrated European Census Microdata Part III Hands-on Training Session January 20155th DwB Training Course3

4 Data without Boundaries project A short overview of outputs & future perspectives Christof Wolf 5 th DwB Training, Barcelona, 21-23 January 2015

5 Data without Boundaries – DwB A short overview

6 DwB: A European project (FP7) The overall objective is to increase the use of official microdata Very rich resources within the European Research Area Both national and European data sources However still underused due to a number of difficulties for accessing and using these data Particularly for highly detailed microdata and transnational access January 20155th DwB Training Course6

7 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 Knowledge about potential of data (support use of data, train the researchers …) January 20155th DwB Training Course7

8 This is achieved bringing together different communities 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 improve situation by fostering collaboration between 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 January 20155th DwB Training Course8

9 Major characteristics of DwB Began May 2011, total duration 48 months Project lead: Roxane Silberman, RQ/CNRS 28 partners 12 work packages January 20155th DwB Training Course9

10 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, study feasibility of a Remote Access Network (Eu-RAN), Secure Data Centre issues, calls for transnational access  C: Communication and training: promote discussions, increase knowledge and reach agreements January 20155th DwB Training Course10

11 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 Preparation of many additional censuses for IECM January 20155th DwB Training Course 11

12 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 Research Data Centres and researchers o A pilot and a prototype Support for research projects from 7 Research Data Centres in 4 countries January 20155th DwB Training Course12

13 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 Research Data Centres January 20155th DwB Training Course13

14 Current opportunities for researchers 4 th European Users Conference for microdata from Eurostat Offers a platform to discuss research findings and research needs EUC brings together researchers and data producers from all over Europe 5-6 March 2015, Mannheim, Germany Registration is open January 20155th DwB Training Course14

15 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 Last course Adult Education Survey, 18-20 February 2015, Athens January 20155th DwB Training Course15

16 Vision for the Future: Services for OS Microdata

17 Mission 1.Comprehensive web service for OS data 2.Promote use of OS-microdata 3.Continuously improve data access January 20155th DwB Training Course17

18 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 January 20155th DwB Training Course18

19 Mission 1 – Web Service January 20155th 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. January 20155th DwB Training Course20

21 Mission 3 – Improve Data Access Broadening access to integrated European official microdata, e.g. Time Budget Survey, Census Microdata Assist researchers seeking transnational access by informing them on access conditions, access sites and application procedures Lobby for expansion of transnational access networks and harmonization of conditions of use throughout Europe January 20155th DwB Training Course21
