Public use files

SURS provides access to public use files for two surveys: the EU Statistics on Income and Living Conditions (EU-SILC) and the Labour Force Survey (LFS). Public use files are statistically protected and prepared according to Principle 5 of the European Statistics Code of Practice and Article 50 of the National Statistics Act. Statistical disclosure control is a procedure which reduces the risk of disclosing individual units to the minimum with one or more mathematical methods. The information loss is higher due to the protection of confidential data and some statistical values are not accurate. The public use files are available to the public without any access restriction and tailored to the following purposes:

  • To enable accredited researchers who submit the request to access the scientific use files at Eurostat or SURS to develop and write a code that may eventually be applied to the actual scientific use files after access has granted
  • To train accredited researchers on the use and complexity of conducting analyses with the public use files prior to initiating the process to obtain access to the actual scientific use files
  • For statistical training
