CBS Microdata informatie-evenement – 23 maart

Wil je meer informatie over de mogelijkheden en het gebruik van CBS microdata en de Microdata Access Grant (MAG) 2021 call? Op dinsdag 23 maart, van 14:00 tot 16:00 uur, organiseert ODISSEI een CBS Microdata Informatie-evenement. Tijdens deze middag zullen verschillende sprekers informatie delen voor onderzoekers die met CBS microdata willen werken. De bijeenkomst is voor onderzoekers die overwegen om zich aan te melden voor de MAG en voor onderzoekers die zich niet willen aanmelden voor de MAG, maar wel geïnteresseerd zijn in het werken met CBS microdata kunnen aansluiten. Na elke presentatie is er ruimte voor vragen. Aan het eind van het programma is er ook ruimte voor vragen rondom de aanmeldingsprocedure. De voertaal van het evenement is Engels.

Vind meer informatie over CBS microdata en de Microdata Access Grant (MAG) call van 2021 op de pagina over Microdata-toegang.

Aanmelden voor het evenement kan nog, door een mail te sturen naar

Programma (Engels):

14.00-14.05: Microdata Access Grant introduction –  Kasia Karpinska (ODISSEI Scientific Manager). 

14.05-14.35: Conducting research with CBS microdata collection – Hilde van Oirschot (CBS Accountmanager Microdataservices). In this presentation, Van Oirschot will give an introduction to the CBS microdata, present the catalogue and available datasets, and the options of combining the microdata with survey data. Finally, the official procedures to work with microdata will be discussed.

14.35-15.05: Recent research with microdata: ‘The costs of each disease’ – Daniel Karpati (Tilburg University, 2020 MAG recipient). Karpati will present the research that he is currently conducting with CBS microdata. Find the abstract below. 

15.05-15.20: Microdata research with the ODISSEI Social Data Science Team (SoDa). The ODISSEI Social Data Science (SoDa) team has been founded to support social scientists with the computational and statistical expertise needed to answer research questions using novel methods and data. The team will highlight what it can do for you in developing and executing your microdata project. 

15.20-15.30: Analysing CBS microdata with the ODISSEI Secure Supercomputer –  Kasia Karpinska (ODISSEI Scientific Manager)The ODISSEI Secure Supercomputer is a high-performance environment suitable for analysing highly sensitive data, such as microdata. In this presentation, Karpinska will shortly describe the type of research that can be executed in the OSSC. 

15.30: General Q&A on the Microdata Access Grant application procedure and using CBS microdata

“The costs of each disease” – Abstract:

 Julio Crego, Daniel Karpati, Jens Kvaerner and Luc Renneboog

Health is a key driver of saving decisions and labor market outcomes due to its effects on mortality, wages, medical expenditures and the ability to work. The unavailability of large-scale household-level data on health has prevented researchers from identifying the relative importance of these four channels on financial decision making. For this project, the researchers use administrative microdata provided by Statistics Netherlands, including data on specialist medical care, labor supply, household balance sheets and demographics for a subset of the working Dutch population. The dataset covers more than 250 distinct diagnoses from ten medical specialties, affecting 2.2 million people. The researchers identify the causal effects of each diagnosis on the above four risk factors in difference-in-differences models, where they exploit the quasi-random timing of the diagnosis among people who were eventually diagnosed in the 2013-2017 period. Then in a cross-diagnosis setting they compare the estimated risk factors with people’s savings choices and labor market decisions.
