We are a data infrastructure for the social science community in Austria and offer a variety of research support services, primarily data archiving and help with data re-use. We make social science data accessible, creating opportunities for research and data reuse, benefitting science and society.


Thank you for getting in touch and your interest in our services! Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the AUSSDA Team is at home in telework. 

What does this mean for you?

  • In our AUSSDA Dataverse you can find and access data as usual. Many of our datasets can also be used for teaching and e-learning, e.g. data collected by the Austrian National Election Study (AUTNES) or the Social Survey Austria (SSÖ-ISSP). 
  • AUSSDA will continue to provide the full-range of services, please bear in mind that delays may occur. 
  • Until further notice, meetings of any kind as well as consultations will be held via telework options available.
