Webinar Series: Introduction to Administrative Data from Europe

Registrations are now open for the first of three webinars between January and March 2021

A series of three webinars to give an Introduction to Administrative Data from Europe

Empirical research in the social sciences and evidence-based policy advice increasingly relies on large and high-quality microdata. Many countries in Europe have now made available individual- or firm-level data based on social security records or mandatory reporting standards. These datasets offer many opportunities for analysing innovative research questions and provide causal evidence on many questions relevant to international research and policy-makers alike. This webinar will bring together experts from research centers in France, Germany and the Netherlands to present and discuss the potentials of the various data for research and policy. The seminar is open to any person working at a university, research institute or ministry in Luxembourg and neighboring countries subject to registration prior to the event. The presentations and discussion will be held in English.

These three webinars will be given on the virtual support platform Webex.
