This includes, for example: European Community Household Panel, European Union Labour Force Survey, Community Innovation Survey, European Union Statistics on Income and Living Conditions, Structure of Earnings Survey, Adult Education Survey, European Health Interview Survey, Household Budget Survey.
The data is free of charge. However, one has to submit a project proposal before getting access to the data. You can find further details on the application process here.
PhD students have to name their advisors in the project proposal. Also the number of the research entity needs to be mentioned (contact Michaela Kreyenfeld for more details). The proposal can be uploaded on the EUROSTAT webpage after you have registered.
