CESSDA Data Catalogue User Guide

This is the User Guide for version 3.5.0 of the CESSDA Data Catalogue.

The CESSDA Data Catalogue contains descriptions (metadata) of the more than 40,000 data collections held by CESSDA’s Service Providers (SPs). It is a one-stop shop for searching and finding European social science datasets from over 20 European countries. The presented data includes a range of data types, such as quantitative, qualitative or mixed-modes data, covering both cross-sectional and longitudinal studies, as well as recently collected and historical data. The metadata (study descriptions) are presented in the language as originally provided by the organisations producing the metadata. Some publishers provide study descriptions both in English and in the local language, some only in either English or in the local language. Currently, about 75% of study descriptions are available in English.
