Browse our archive

Our new archive solution is now online. The AUSSDA archive is organized into "dataverses". A dataverse is a collection of data sets around a special topic or source. AUSSDA's primary collection is the public dataverse. Enter free text in the search box or refine your search using the filters on the left.

Data archived before November 2017, for example the microcensus, can be found in our former archiving system. Be sure to add an asterisk (*) to your search terms to allow for all possible variations.

Who can access data?

AUSSDA is committed to making its data assets as open and accessible as possible. Ultimately data creators are responsible for determining who can access their data and how they can be used. 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.

Data variety

AUSSDA archives a wide variety of social sciences data, with a focus on quantitative research methods and data. Our data contributors include government agencies, large-scale chronological research programs, and small-scale one-off research projects. A special agreement with Statistics Austria formally authorizes AUSSDA to host Austrian microcensus data reaching back to 1973. Gather insights on population development and value changes of past generations with a range of datasets exclusively available at AUSSDA.
