7th European User Conference for EU-Microdata (virtual)

Microdata from Eurostat


March 25-26, 2021

Organized by German Microdata Lab, GESIS, in cooperation with Eurostat

European microdata released by Eurostat are an important basis for comparative social research. More and more researchers use these data for a wide range of economic and social analyses. For many years, researchers have presented results of their work at the bi-annual conferences organised by GESIS.

The 7th European User Conference (virtual) is organised by the German Microdata Lab, GESIS, in cooperation with Eurostat. The conference will provide researchers with the opportunity to present and discuss their latest work and share their experience. In addition to fostering the discussion within the research community on both substantive and methodological issues, the conference offers researchers the opportunity to get into contact with colleagues from Eurostat.

Researchers of all disciplines (e.g. economics, sociology, demography, geography, political science and public health) who use or are interested in European microdata are encouraged to participate.
