Looking for data?

AUSSDA archives a variety of social science data. The AUSSDA Dataverse is our archiving solution. It is divided into several collections, our so-called Dataverses. Once you have found a study you would like to use, in most cases you can download the dataset and associated documentation directly. For the use of certain other data sets, you must contact us in advance. Each dataset is individually assigned a license and an access model by its author. You can find more information about licensing and usage restrictions in the description section of a dataset’s landing page. If you would like to learn more about our Dataverse, check out our user guide.
