Data users automatically become members of the research network “Living in Switzerland”. Since 2009 the members receive automatically the latest data sets and updates. Members of the network also automatically receive an invitation for the Swiss Panel Conference and for training workshops. To find out what other data users are working on and how to get into contact with them, you find the complete list of members of the research network below.
Currently, the research network “Living in Switzerland” has over 1100 registered members (i.e. researchers who have signed a data contract since 1999 and received at least once a SHP CD), analysing the SHP data on a variety of topics: types of households and families, poverty, health, living conditions of elderly people, living conditions of first and second generation immigrants, political participation and life satisfaction, etc.
The SHP data users come from:
political science (8%)
public health (4%)
A few technical scientists and geographers are also present, indicating that spatially related topics are also being analysed using the SHP data.
The active data users belong to the following institutions:
Swiss academic institutions (69%)
International academic institutions (18%)
Public administrations (8%)
Private institutes (5%)
National and international academic communities clearly dominate comprising 87% of all data users. Moreover, the “statistical” use by public administrations and private research facilities is not negligible. Within Switzerland, all universities and many universities of applied science (Fachhochschule/HES) are represented among data users.
