All datasets in the Centre for Policy Related Statistics’ microdata catalogue are available for authorised external researchers to do their own research using these datasets.
The catalogue does not contain all the datasets Statistics Netherlands uses to compile its statistics.
CBS datasets not (yet) included in the catalogue may be made suitable for use by external researchers as custom-made datasets.
The catalogue (classified by theme) includes documentation reports of the most recent version of datasets immediately available for use.
This documentation contains a description of the contents and structure of the dataset. The enclosures referred to in this documentation are available only in Dutch and on request.
The reports are only available in Dutch. To consult a specific report, please switch to the Dutch website.
There is an agreement between Statistics Netherlands and DANS – Data Archiving and Networked Services, an initiative of the Netherlands Organisation of Scientific Research (NWO) and the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW), under which DANS makes available datasets with data on persons and household for scientific research.
