How has car ownership in Amsterdam changed since the opening of the North-South metro line? This research project utilizes CBS microdata of residents of Amsterdam of the past 10 years to disentangle that complex question.
What are the effects of factors such as air pollution, noise and greenery on the health of adults based on country-wide questionnaires and registrations? This project by researchers at RIVM is highly complex and requires a great deal of computing power.
The researchers estimate the housing demand in the Netherlands with a discrete choice model which allows them to estimate what influence different house and household characteristics have on the housing choices that people in the Netherlands make. They use the OSSC for the estimation of the housing demand model and to prepare the dataset that is used to estimate the model.

ODISSEI Lunch Lecture: The robot or the brain? Building a classifier for visual news frames of Artificial Intelligence
On Tuesday 6 December between 12-13 hrs, dr. Irina Lock (University of Amsterdam) will give an online Lunch Lecture on the framing of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in online media images. We warmly invite you to attend this lecture, learn more about the framing of images related to Artificial Intelligence and how computational methods can be used to detect and classify frames in images.
On 23 February, the next online Microdata Meeting will take place, with a presentation of Lydia Geijtenbeek (Statistics Netherlands) on ‘Energy Poverty in Figures’.
Statistics Netherlands has created a file that describes energy poverty in the Netherlands through 4 different indicators. During her presentation, Geijtenbeek will show how these data have been constructed, how they can be used for social research, and how the already available data can be used to estimate the current levels of energy poverty.
ODISSEI will host its second Summer Institute in Computational Social Science in the Netherlands from 19-30 June, 2023. The purpose of the Summer Institute is to bring together PhD students, postdoctoral researchers, and early career researchers interested in computational social science.
The Summer Institute is for both social scientists and data scientists.
The Microdata Access Grant call of 2023 is now open. The MAG offers funding for six CBS microdata projects for researchers working at ODISSEI member organisations. Click here to read the guidelines.
From 19 to 30 June, ODISSEI is hosting its second summer school at Erasmus University in Rotterdam. ODISSEI hopes to bring together PhD students, post-docs and early career social scientists and data scientists interested in computational social science using ODISSEI.
ODISSEI has granted LISS panel grants to five research projects. Read more about each project in this article.
