LISS Data Archive

Are you already familiar with the LISS Data Archive? In this video of just a couple of minutes you will learn how researchers can use the LISS data. The LISS Data Archive provides researchers with longitudinal data on various topics, such as health, family, work and income, values, and much more. All data are collected in the LISS panel, thé probability-based panel in the Netherlands for scientific and social and policy-relevant research.

This is what we do in data science

We have developed an instrument that makes skills based matching for professions possible. People who work in shrinking positions often have skills and expertise that can be useful in professions where there is a shortage of personnel.
