DwB-Training Course: Working with data from official statistics in Europe particularly the European Labour Force Survey

Mannheim (Germany), 18-20 July, 2012

Data without Boundaries organizes in cooperation with Eurostat a series of three day training courses on integrated Eurostat datasets.

This first course will particularly focus on the European Labour Force Survey (EU-LFS) and will be hosted by GESIS (Mannheim); other partners involved in this course are UK Data Archive (Essex), Réseau Quetelet (Paris), Institut National de la Statistique et des Etudes Economiques (Paris) and Eurostat (Luxembourg).

The course is aimed at post graduate and senior researchers from throughout Europe who are seeking to conduct research on the basis of the EU- LFS. Besides highlighting the legal and administrative aspects of data access the course will demonstrate the possibilities of the EU-LFS in a hands-on computer session which will explore the potential for both international as well as longitudinal analysis. A basic understanding of multivariate statistical methods and SPSS/Stata will be required.

The course will consist of the following three parts:

Part I: Overview of European Data from Official Statistics Part II: The EU-LFS: Content, documentation, data structure, analysis Part III: Accessing confidential national microdata
