Data Access: Remote Data Access / JoSuA

Remote data access (i. e. remote data execution) means that researchers submit scripts (e. g. Stata do-files) to the FDZ and later access the approved results after verification of compliance with data protection legislation. Remote data access at the FDZ is conducted with the software JoSuA (Job Submission Application) developed by the Institute of Labor Economics (IZA). Users are provided with individual accounts to the JoSuA web interface. Via this interface, they can upload their scripts and access the results. Artificial test data sets provided on the FDZ website can be used to develop the scripts.

How to Apply for the Data?

Make an application

Please fill in the ‘request form remote data access’. After completing the form, please send your request as a Word document by e-mail to iab.fdz@iab.de. Please note that requests which are not submitted as Word documents will not be processed. An information sheet is available to help you fill in the request form. Note that a use agreement for on-site use already includes remote data execution.

 Use Agreement

After the request has been approved, a use agreement is concluded between the researcher’s institution and the FDZ. This agreement entitles the researcher to analyse the required data via JoSuA.

How to modify an existing project?

Amendments concerning the end date of the project, the required data products, or further staff members can be incorporated via a supplementary data use agreement:

Changes regarding the researchers’ institution or the contents of the project require a new data use request. Please indicate your project number. 

Data use for students

Students may also get access to our data via remote data processing for their theses or dissertations. In this case the faculty member supervising the student has to submit the request for data use.

What to Keep in Mind when Using the Data?

Please upload your scripts via the web application JoSuA: https://josua.iab.de. Your scripts must comply with our guidelines for remote data access and must have been tested in advance using the test data. Please use the Presentation/Publication mode only for results that are relevant for your presentation or publication. Otherwise use the Internal Use Mode.

Publishing the results

Researchers’ publications based on FDZ data must include a reference to the used datasets.

Please submit one copy of every publication (including so-called ‘grey literature’ such as working papers or project reports) in digital or printed form to the FDZ. Confidentiality
