Due to Corona the half-yearly 'Microdata User Meeting Afternoon' of May 14th was postponed. The subject ‘Inequality’ is maybe even more relevant now. We want to let you know that we have a new date and another format, but the same speakers and subject
on Thursday afternoon November 12th we will now organize a webinar on ‘Inequality’.
Keep this date free if you are interested to join. The program order will probably be different from below. More information about that and information about how to register will follow in the final invitation in September/October.
On Thursday, May 14, the Central Bureau of Statistics organizes the half-yearly 'Microdata User Afternoon'. The symposium will take place at Statistics Netherlands in The Hague, from 12-17:00. The theme of this afternoon is Inequality. Early in April an invitation will follow including a link for subscription. If you are interested in this subject you may already want to save this date in your agenda. There are no costs involved in attending the meeting.
The meeting is intended for all researchers who use the microdata of Statistics Netherlands or others interested in these microdata. Internal and external speakers will outline the content of the files, how the results can be used and what remains to be desired. There is opportunity to discuss the data with content experts. We also want to stimulate the exchange of knowledge between researchers during the meeting. Please note that all presentations will be in Dutch.
