Microdata access conditions
General conditions

Microdata can be provided for research purposes to registered research institutions and registered researchers in both academia and government offices. "Registered" researchers have a national identifier.
As a general rule, users submit applications for access that are assessed by a Confidentiality committee (internal to SORS); the latter prepares recommendations for SORS's board of directors, which makes the final decision.

Conditions for non-resident researchers

Same as national researchers (though requests from non-registered researchers should be evaluated by the internal Confidentiality committee).

Conditions for students

Same as confirmed researchers, provided a tutor/supervisor signs the access agreement on behalf of the student.
