The number of scientists registered for using data from the National Education Panel (NEPS) has exceeded the threshold of 2,000 users in January 2019.
The Research Data Centre LIfBi provides three free access points to NEPS data, offering researchers worldwide maximum flexibility: Scientific Use Files can be downloaded from the NEPS website. This data has the highest degree of anonymity. More sensitive data can be analyzed using the remote access technology RemoteNEPS. Here, researchers work on LIfBi servers via a console on their own computers. The Institute also provides statistical software for this way of data access. In the context of on-site guest visits, even more detailed analyses can be carried out while ensuring maximum data security.
