Data Access: Remote Data Access / JoSuA

Remote data access means that researchers develop programs in Stata on the basis of our test data. We use the software JoSuA (Job Submission Application) which has been developed by the Institute for the Study of Labor (IZA). Users are provided with access to JoSuA. Users upload their programs in JoSuA. The results are available in JoSuA after verification of compliance with data protection legislation.

JoSuA: FAQ

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..

 Use Agreement

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

What to Keep in Mind when Using the Data?

Please upload your programs on web application JoSuA: https://josua.iab.de. These programs must follow the guidelines for the 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’.

How to modify an existing project?

Amendments concerning project end, data requirement or inclusion of further members of staff can be incorporated via a supplementary data use agreement:

Changes of the institution conducting the research or in the contents of the project require a new request for data use. Please indicate the project number as well.
