Updates and new versions

EPA (microdades):
Important notice: From June 2005 on, the INE (Instituto Nacional de Estadística) offers free access to its microdata files. But the EPA on free access is different from the one the UPF buys.

The Library has just acquired the 2005 files. Including the new "Diseño y descripción del registro de variables".

Access is restricted to researchers. Users with acces will find it in the network unit Q "Dades estadístiques".

More information: Spain: Statistical Data. Instituto Nacional de Estadística

Regions: Statistical Yearbook: New edition 2005. CD-ROM available on loan.
