The Research Data Center DeZIM.fdz at the German Center for Integration and Migration Research consists of four interconnected modules: (1) data archive, (2) support for staff and users, (3) online access panel and (4) metadatabase.
It offers interested researchers the opportunity to access research data collected in the course of projects carried out at the DeZIM Institute and at the institutes of the DeZIM Research Association. In addition to the access to the data, the DeZIM.fdz organizes an extensive support for the individual data sets in its data offer as well as for various methodological key topics. The regularly conducted surveys within the framework of the Online Access Panel enable scientists at the DeZIM Institute, at the institutes of the DeZIM Research Association, external scientists and the staff of the BMFSFJ to access a pool of potential interviewees. Furthermore, DeZIM.fdz offers an extensive information database, which enables research on studies - both internally and externally archived - that deal with the topics of integration and migration.
