ETHMIGSURVEYDATA is Brussels Bound!
ETHMIGSURVEYDATA is headed to Brussels on 9-10 March 2020 for its next COST Action meeting and 2nd Annual Policy Dialogue Conference! This 2-day event will be hosted at the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) office in Brussels.
Throughout the 2 -day event, researchers, policymakers, and others working with EMM (ethnic and migrant minority) survey data will be participating in various sessions/activities that will allow them to connect and learn from one another, as well as collectively discuss the substantive and scientific work driven and coordinated via ETHMIGSURVEYDATA. To learn more about the planned sessions/activities, check out the agenda!
Following the training session, there will be space and time during coffee breaks and lunch for additional activities such as a demo of QAMyData (a free easy-to-use open source tool developed by the UKDS, designed to detect and report on some of the most common problems in survey or numeric data) or creating a mock data deposit in ReShare, the UKDS self-deposit repository.
The training session and interactive activities will be led by Anca Vlad who is a data repository administrator at UKDS. She manages deposit through the UKDS self-deposit repository (ReShare), advises on data management, data deposit, and ethical considerations when archiving data, and conducts data disclosure checks on deposited data.
