French and German Data at ICPSR: New Opportunities for Comparative Cross-Country Research

Access to the French confidential microdata is now in part open for North America; a secure remote access to these data has been implemented at the ICPSR enclave where researchers can access these data in addition to German data. In this webinar, we explain which datasets are available and how researchers can gain access to these rich resources. Moreover, the German Research Data Centre (FDZ) of the German Federal Employment Agency at the Institute for Employment Research (IAB) and the French Research Data Center “Centre d‘Accès Sécurisé aux Données” (CASD), in close collaboration, have evaluated cross-country comparability of data from both parts including data covering labor market issues and some other topics. As a result of this collaboration, presenters Marie-Christine LAIBLE and Maria ALKHOURY will point out the opportunities for cross-country research, and reveal a comparison of one example of similar data in depth.

Dr. Marie-Christine LAIBLE is a researcher at the Institute for Employment Research (IAB) in Nuremberg, Germany. As a researcher at the Research Data Center (FDZ) of the Federal Employment Agency at the IAB, she works with complex administrative and survey data.

Maria ALKHOURY is a political science graduate. She recently joined the French research Data Center “Centre d’accès sécurisé aux données.” As a CASD Data Manager, she guides researchers in their application procedure to access French data and controls the statistical confidentiality of the result they wish to publish.
