Kaiser, U; Wagner, J (2008). Neue Möglichkeiten zur Nutzung vertraulicher amtlicher Personen- und Firmendaten. Perspektiven der Wirtschaftspolitik, 9(3):329-349.

Abstract

Researchers in Germany have nowadays access to confidential micro data compiled from official statistics in a way that could not have been dreamt of just a few years ago. This paper describes the new institutions that grant data access – most importantly the research data centers located inside the data producing agencies – and how to access the micro data, and presents information about selected recently released data sets with a high potential for scientific research and policy evaluation. Furthermore, we contrast the German situation with the Danish way of handling research access to confidential micro data. Finally, we take a look at ongoing projects that will further improve data access in Germany.
