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 Eikon;
  • a short introduction on the WorldDataBank (e.g. World Development Indicators);
  • general search tips for open data.

The workshop will take place through Zoom. Duration: up to 1 hour. The language spoken will be English.
