Currently, micro-data on research and development activities (R & D) can be used in the German economy, which is collected on behalf of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Core indicators are the internal and external R & D expenditures of enterprises by use of funds and source of funding, R & D personnel by type of activity and sex, the regional distribution of research institutions, the business innovation and economic indicators. Some time series are available from the year 1979. For all odd report annual data are available for all largely within Germany R & D-active companies. In even years under review a representative sample of research companies is questioned. The data are broken down by industry, region, company size and other characteristics evaluated. The survey is part of the official EU Community Statistics, and is incorporated into national and international reporting systems. Most studies and data are in German language.

The Research Data Centre (FDZ-RV) was set-up in 2004 as an integral part of the German Federal Pension Insurance (Deutsche Rentenversicherung). Since then, the Research Data Centre produced several cross-sectional and longitudinal datasets, also called Scientific Use Files (SUF), available to researchers interested in issues of retirement, disability and rehabilitation. The datasets are released on an annual basis. The Scientific Use Files are subsamples drawn from the pool of individuals who are insured in the Federal Pension Insurance. The information provided in the original datasets is necessary to administer the beneficiaries of the pension insurance.

One of the Bundesbank's tasks is to collect statistical data. Some of these data are then fed into the time series published on the internet in the time series database. In recent years, there have been increased demands for all data providers to make more data available for research purposes. This applies, on the one hand, to the individual data used for the calculation of the published aggregated data. This is because only using these individual data is it possible to accurately reflect the heterogeneity of the relevant feature carriers in academic studies. Due to legal requirements, individual data cannot be made generally available. However, these data are made available under strict conditions and for clearly defined academic research purposes at the Research Centre of the Deutsche Bundesbank. Furthermore, in the area of aggregated data, there is also an increasing demand for real-time data. These data reflect an out-of-date data set and may therefore deviate from data currently available as a result of corrections carried out in the meantime.

The speaking language atlas gives a multimedia impression of the dialects of the state Baden-Württemberg in Germany. The maps of the Speaking Language Atlas of Baden-Württemberg are based on two databases: Südwestdeutschen Sprachatlas (SSA) and the Sprachatlas von Nord Baden-Württemberg (SNBW). The dialect recordings that form the basis for the maps were carried out at the SSA between 1974 and 1986, but at the SNBW between 2009 and 2012. For the southern part, this means that the maps may present a state of affairs that is no longer valid today.

The Historical Data Centre Saxony-Anhalt was founded in 2008. Its main tasks are the computer-aided provision, processing and evaluation of historical research data, the development of theoretically consolidated normative data and vocabularies as well as the further development of methods in the context of digital humanities, research data management and quality assurance. The "Historical Data Centre Saxony-Anhalt" sees itself as a central institution for the data service of historical data in the federal state of Saxony-Anhalt and is thus part of a nationally and internationally linked infrastructure for long-term data storage and use. The Centre primarily acquires individual-specific microdata for the analysis of life courses, employment biographies and biographies (primarily quantitative, but also qualitative data), which offer a broad interdisciplinary and international analytical framework and meet clearly defined methodological and technical requirements. The studies are processed, archived and - in compliance with data protection and copyright conditions - made available to the scientifically interested public in accordance with internationally recognized standards. The degree of preparation depends on the type and quality of the study and on demand. Reference studies and studies in high demand are comprehensively documented - often in cooperation with primary researchers or experts - and summarized in data collections. The Historical Data Centre supports researchers in meeting the high demands of research data management. This includes the advisory support of the entire life cycle of data, starting with data production, documentation, analysis, evaluation, publication, long-term archiving and finally the subsequent use of data. In cooperation with other infrastructure facilities of the state of Saxony-Anhalt as well as national and international, interdisciplinary data repositories, the Data Centre provides tools and infrastructures for the publication and long-term archiving of research data. Together with the University and State Library of Saxony-Anhalt, the Data Centre operates its own data repository as well as special workstations for the digitisation and analysis of data. The Historical Data Centre aims to be a contact point for very different users of historical sources. We collect data relating to historical persons, events and historical territorial units.

Numerous studies on gender relations and gender equality policy in academia regularly produce research data that could be useful for a secondary analysis and for other research topics. At present, only a small amount of research data that was explicitly collected on gender relations in academia is archived. Long-term surveys such as graduate studies or social surveys on students are also available to be used in gender-specific studies. CEWS would like to support researchers in their search for research data and at the same time motivate them to archive data from their own projects and thus make them accessible to other researchers by providing search options at GESIS and other data-providing institutions as well as basic information on data archiving.
