Uruguay: Microdata Outreach Workshop (April 2014)

Country / Regional Activity: Uruguay
Date of Event: 09/04/2014

The National Institute of Statistics (INE) Uruguay, with the support of the Accelerated Data Program (ADP), hosted a workshop in Montevideo on April 9 - 10 to engage a wide range of microdata users from line ministries, research institutions and central banks. During the workshop, users were introduced to the range of survey and census data disseminated by INE and became aware of how to search and request access for data on NADA. The users were exposed to the wide range of microdata and were guided through the microdata access process. The workshop also facilitated exchanges between INE and data users, to know the user demands. Institutions that belong to the National Statistics System (NSS) presented their experience as INE’s data users and producers. They exposed how important the information produced by INE is for them as direct users and how it helps them to produce new information based on INE’s data. The ADP has been undertaking these user-producer workshops as a way to highlight and launch the National Data Archives.
