Finding the right macroeconomic variables for your research can be quite an effort. There is just so much data available online, both open access or behind a paywall. This support session gives a comprehensive overview of the most important databases supported by the university (both licensed and open data) and their possibilities and limitations.

The workshop consists of the following elements:

  • a 'what, where and how' with regard to some basic macroeconomic variables in databases supported by this university;
  • an introduction to finding macroeconomic variables in the LSEG Workspace;
  • a short introduction on the WorldDataBank (e.g. World Development Indicators) and related data sources;
  • general search tips for open data.

The workshop will take place on campus in the Elinor Ostrom building. The exact location will be communicated to the attendants shortly before the workshop. Duration: up to 1 hour. The language spoken will be English.
