Data management

This section provides information and tips related to data management related to register-based research. Please contact if you want to provide information to be included on this page.

At a workshop in Gothenburg 2 March 2015 SIMSAM researchers decided to start an experiment on sharing knowledge and scripts via GitHub. A structure based on available registers has been set up and people are encouraged to contribute to the joint build-up of knowledge on how to clean/prepare data and to perform research using registers (irrespective of if people are connected to SIMSAM or not).
