The Center for Socio-Political Data (CDSP), which is one of the three data centers of the French network of data centers for social sciences, the Réseau Quetelet, is responsible for the documentation and dissemination of the surveys produced through the ELIPSS panel. The surveys are documented according to the Data Documentation Initiative international norm and are published online. They are listed in the survey catalogue of the Réseau Quetelet portal.
The data dissemination obeys all existing rules within the framework of the Réseau Quetelet. Furthermore, the files of the ELIPSS panel are freely accessible for research purposes. All commercial use is therefore prohibited.
What is a research purpose?
A research purpose is defined as the production of new knowledge or the replication of results that have already been validated. The research aim is assessed upon the description of the research project accompanying each data request. The results obtained from the data of the ELIPSS panel are public, freely available for distribution. They do not serve the particular interests of public or private institutions.
Who can obtain the data of the ELIPSS panel?
The data is accessible to French and foreign researchers, PhD students, post-doctoral fellows and Master students.
How to obtain the data of the ELIPSS panel?
Once the purpose of research and the requester's status are checked by the CDSP, in order to obtain the data, requester will have to sign an user agreement in which he commits to:
- respect the confidentiality of the respondents,
- not re-disseminate the data to a third party,
- cite the data source in publications,
- destruct the data file at the conclusion of the research.
When will the data files be available?
