The European User Conference for EU-LFS and EU-SILC

1st European User Conference


Mannheim, Germany, March 5-6, 2009


 Organized by

 German Microdata Lab, GESIS, in cooperation with Eurostat


The first European User Conference for EU-LFS and EU-SILC, which is organized by the German Microdata Lab, GESIS, in cooperation with Eurostat, will provide researchers who use these data with the opportunity to discuss their 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 give feedback to the European Statistical System. It is important that the potential and limitations of EU-LFS and EU-SILC are understood by researchers and, at the same time, that the needs of researchers become clear.Researchers of all disciplines who use either EU-LFS or EU-SILC micro data are encouraged to participate. Conference sessions will focus on education, labour market, income, poverty and methodological topics.
