Definition
Means and conditions under which data can be viewed or used.
Context
Access also refers to terms, copyright issues and confidentiality constraints related to how the data can be used. A particular case is access to microdata, which can be defined as the process of providing users who are external to the data provider with access to unit level data, usually under strictly controlled conditions.
Remark
This concept was part of the SDMX Metadata Common Vocabulary (MCV), as published in SDMX Content-Oriented Guidelines (COG), annex 4 "Metadata Common Vocabulary", in 2009 (http://www.sdmx.org). In February 2016 the Metadata Common Vocabulary was replaced by the SDMX Glossary 2016.
