Request for access


To access the microdata, an application for access must be filed. The Research Data Centres of the Federal Statistical Office and the Statistical Offices of the federal states need the following information:


We advise researchers who make an application for access for the first time to consult the RDC staff in advance. A detailed consultation usually results in a faster processing of the request.
Here you can find our contact information.


To request the access to data, you can fill out the printable version of the application form and send us the printed or, as the case may be, scanned form by post, fax or e-mail.

Please inform yourself beforehand on the RDC terms of use and the regulations on the analysis of microdata.


  I have read and accept the terms of use and the regulations. I am aware that the RDC can make use of the opportunity to reject the checking resp. the release of results if the regulations are not fulfilled.
