The GGP collects several types of data. All of these are available online and free of charge under the following circumstances:
a) Micro data on individuals (from the GGS survey) can be downloaded upon registration and approval. This data include information about respondent's family life, social security, pension, employment, wages, education, and health. Interested parties need to register and sign a pledge of confidentiality in order to be granted access. The scientific quality of the proposed research is not judged as a part of the application procedure.
b) Micro data can be accessed for an online analysis without downloading and registration. The NESSTAR tool for the online analysis is directly on the website of the whole GGP.
c) The Contextual Database gives an open access without registration to comparable, aggregated contextual data for countries or sub-state geographical units, which can be linked to the individual level data of the GGS. It contains over 70 indicators of the macro-context for about 60 countries and over 200 indicators for participating GGP countries. The database has been compiled from various international and national sources and is continually updated. CDB variables are mostly from areas of social policies, demography, economy, education, and health.
d) The GGP also linkes and harmonizes data from other sources and countries to comparable datasets aimed for a cross-national analysis. The most profound result of these activities is the file called Harmonized Histories, which is available upon the same registration as the GGS data.
e) Apart from the panel data, the second wave of Czech data also involve cross-sectional data collected in 2008. Complete Czech data from the second wave of GGS are now publicly accessible through the Czech Social Science Data Archive at the Institute of Sociology of the Czech Academy of Sciences (ČSDA). You can find more details in this article.
