GESIS – Leibniz-Institute for the Social Sciences is an infrastructure institution in Germany which offers services to the empirical social research. We are also engaged in own social research, focusing on the description and analysis of social change. Moreover, GESIS offers a wide range of events for, by and with the scientific community. In our training courses we impart knowledge and practice-oriented skills in the area of social research methods.
This workshop is founded by CESSDA and part of the Data Discovery Training. CESSDA provides large scale, integrated and sustainable data services to the social sciences. It brings together social science data archives across Europe, with the aim of promoting the results of social science research and supporting national and international research and cooperation.
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. Basic understanding in multivariate statistical methods and Stata will be required.
