NADA is a web-based cataloging system that serves as a portal for researchers to browse, search, compare, apply for access, and download relevant census or survey information. It was originally developed to support the establishment of national survey data archives.
The Survey Solutions Computer-Assisted Personal Interview (CAPI) software developed by the World Bank assists governments, statistical offices and non-governmental organisations in conducting complex surveys with dynamic structures using tablet devices. The software can be tailored to the needs of the clients, allowing them to successfully complete simple and more sophisticated projects: from basic evaluation questionnaires to complicated multistage panel surveys.
Release of microdata sometimes poses risks to the privacy of respondents. The application of Statistical Disclosure Control (SDC) or anonymization methods for privacy control addresses this. To make it easier for producers of microdata to apply the common methods of risk measurement and anonymization, Statistics Austria, the Vienna University of Technology, the International Household Survey Network (IHSN) , PARIS21 (OECD), and the World Bank have contributed to the development of an open source software package for SDC, called sdcMicro.
