This page contains resources for users of the Integrated Data Infrastructure (IDI).
MeetaData is an online collaboration space created by Statistics NZ for all microdata users. MeetaData allows you to connect with other users, share knowledge, ask questions, share code, and talk about anything related to microdata.
If you are interested in becoming a member, email email@example.com.
We invite researchers to share their IDI experience with others via forums and other seminars.
To be notified about upcoming forums, sign up for the IDI users mail group by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The IDI is a large SQL database therefore intermediate SQL coding skills are strongly recommended. Researchers can undertake analysis using different software packages. Most researchers code in SAS or SQL, while others prefer coding in R or Stata.
Code sharing is allowed and encouraged in the Data Lab environment. Code is shared via the IDI Wiki and can be output checked and shared on MeetaData.
- Microdata output guide describes the methods and rules that researchers must use for confidentialising output produced from Statistics NZ’s microdata.
