We are very pleased to announce the first CASD / IAB Conference on the
advances in social sciences using administrative and survey data. The CASD and
the IAB have recently established cross-country access to confidential
administrative data in France and Germany. The aim is to foster and facilitate
the use of rich register datasets – which can be partly combined with detailed
survey data – from both countries and to improve the data sources for
comparative research in social sciences.
The conference aims to bring together researchers using confidential
administrative data in France and Germany and also welcomes researchers using
similar data from other countries.
Further information can be found at:
During the Christmas break, on-site access at both the Nuremberg site and at
the remote centers will not be available. This also applies to remote
execution services. However, the internal use mode of JoSuA will be active.
Advisory services will be limited.
We would like to remind you that users of Scientific Use Files are only
permitted to process the data in rooms specified in the data security concept,
