Using administrative data becomes a “gold standard” in evaluation of public policies worldwide. Also in Poland there is increasing experience in this matter. In 2015 the Ministry of Digitisation, which promotes the secondary use of admin data, has been established. We also regularly use social insurance data to follow the labour market career of university graduates.
The aim of the meeting was to share experience in using administrative data in Poland and to promote the wider use of such data. The meeting was attended by experts from scientific community and public sector who use admin data collected by public institutions.
The meeting was chaired by Iga Magda from the Institute for Structural Research. The presentations focused on:
Representatives of the Ministry of Development, the World Bank and the Social Insurance Institution also took part in the meeting as discussants.
The meeting was a part of the project “Access to administrative data for research and policy analysis” which is realised by Hungarian Society of Economists (MKE), Budapest Institute (Hungary), Center for Economic Research and Graduate Education – Economics Institute (CERGE-EI, Czechia), Central European Labour Studies Institute (CELSI, Slovakia) and our Institute. The seminar was supported by a grant from the International Visegrad Fund.
The first meeting on the access to administrative data was organised by the Hungarian Society of Economists in Budapest on September 2017 (event website).
