Data Access

Microdata that would otherwise be incomparable, or impossible to access, are made available to researchers through three pathways:


LISSY is a remote-execution system, specifically designed for LIS, that allows researchers to remotely submit statistical programs on LIS/LWS data. Due to confidentiality and security restrictions on microdata, LISSY is available to registered researchers only and exclusively for non-commercial purposes

Web Tabulator (WebTab)

The WebTab is an online table maker – available to the general public – that allows researchers to design and generate cross-national descriptive tables based on the underlying LIS datasets without the need for programming. All WebTab outcomes can be visualised or exported in ASCII/plain text or Excel
