On-the-job training on record linkage or statistical matching
The project will give to the interested NSIs in the ESS the possibility to train people on the job. The methodological area covered by each training on the job will be either record linkage or statistical matching. The NSIs should clearly specify the problem to tackle and the data sets to work with. Training on the job consists of a short course (1 day and a half) and of a guided application of the methods described in the course with the data sets provided by the NSI to be trained (2 days and a half). During the first semester of the project, a call for training on the jobs will be disseminated in the ESS. Information can be found on the leaflet.
