The request to be able to work on French data from the United States and Canada has continually increased. INSEE, in its desire to support research, has just decided to allow access to its data via CASD SD-Boxes provided to North America. Access may be authorized, after the opinion of the statistical confidentiality committee, in one of the two following situations:
- Citizens of a Member State of the European Union, working as a researcher at a North American university or research center;
- American or Canadian researchers working as part of a research project conducted in partnership with a research center /university in a Member State of the European Union.
This new provision will be an asset to foster high-level collaborations with researchers working in North American universities and promote French data in international publications of excellence.
