Legal Frameworks
Visualisation Tool


Based on the outcomes of a discovery work carried out by DwB on potential of legal frameworks for official statistics microdata access for research purposes, a Visualisation Tool has been developed to demonstrate the possibilities and limitations to access (non) confidential data, while possibly allowing tracking the changes in legal provisions in that respect over the years.

The Visualisation Tool elaborates on a number of case scenarios regarding data access provision across several source types (social survey, business survey, census, administrative / register-based datasets on individuals or businesses).

The information provided is based on responses of National Statistical Institutes of the European Research Area. The tool is complemented by a full report on the outcomes of this survey, which primarily aimed at exploring the legal gateways for transnational access across Europe, accessible [Here].
