dc.description.abstractBased on the hypothesis that microdata are of crucial importance for internationallycompetitive economic research and scientific advice in economic and social policy,the authors develop various proposals for an improved data supply for empiricalwork in Germany. Present shortcomings are mainly caused by a lack of coordinationbetween data collecting institutions and scientific users, extensive privacy protectionprovisions and restrictive information policy of government agencies. In order toovercome these problems, the authors ask for improved participation of scientificusers in data collection; provision of recent techniques for data anonymization anddecentralized use of confidential centralized data; liberalization of scientific dataaccess; and creation of a documentation center for organization and standardizationof data and data access. Finally, empirical economics, especially application ofmicrodata and modern tools of data analysis, should be emphasized within theframework of university education.en_US
