Research Area - How to access data?
Statistics Portugal has a wide range of statistical microdata databases for research purposes available for the scientific community and for accredited researchers.
The available databases cover several statistical domains and their relevance may allow studies and further assessment of the economic and social impact of the pandemic.
In addition, Statistics Portugal is trying to find, together with FCT (Portuguese public agency that supports science, technology and innovation) and the Directorate-General for Health (DGS), the appropriate means for making data about the pandemic available to the scientific community, allowing cross analysis with Statistics Portugal statistical data.
Information, 20 march 2020
Considering the recent situation of COVID-19, Statistics Portugal informs that almost all of its personnel is temporarily working from home and that will try to maintain its regular activity, fulfilling its mission as the main national statistical authority in producing official statistics.
Support to respondents and to users is being conducted only by internet and telephone, using the usual channels, maintaining all the attention and professionalism within the current constrains.
Data collection will only be carry out by telephone and internet, to which we ask respondents – families and enterprises - the best collaboration.
Despite the circumstances, Statistics Portugal will try to maintain the statistical production and release calendar, as published in the official statistics website, although some adjustments might occur associated with the impact of the pandemic in obtaining primary information, to which we ask the understating of both citizens and the media.
Any changes will be duly announced in the release calendar.
