Data access

Access to GGP data

Data from the Generations and Gender Programme is available freely for non-commercial purposes. To gain access to the micro data, please register in the GGP User Space and sign the respective data agreement. 

Data is available upon signing the “Statement of Affiliation, Confidentiality, and Terms of Acceptable Usage for GGS Data Sets” and providing the necessary personal information. You can request access to the data online in the GGP data portal. Once your request is submitted, we will review it promptly. For most datasets, access is typically granted within 1-2 working days. However, if your request comes from an institution where no one has previously requested access, or if you’re requesting data from the FFS, GGS-I Norway, or GGS-I Australia datasets, the process may take longer. To expedite your request, we recommend registering with your institutional email address.

Note: This access procedure applies to all datasets except for data from GGS-I Norway, GGS-I Australia, and FFS, which requires a different application process.
