The GML acts as an interface between empirical social research and official statistics. On the one hand, this involves close cooperation with official statistics in preparing, documenting, and providing access to new microdata for empirical social research. On the other hand, we contribute our substantive and methodological expertise in advisory boards and committees. Conducting own methodological and substantive research is a prerequisite of our competent user support and knowledge transfer. You can find an overview of our recent research activities in the annual report [in German only].
