Here below you will find the list of studies and available datasets. Each dataset is organized in the following way:

  • household file: this data file lists all household information (primary key: hh_id)
  • participant file: this data file lists all participants information (primary key: part_id; foreign key: hh_id)
  • survey day file: this data file lists all information regarding the survey day (primary key: sday_id; foreign key: part_id)
  • time use file: this data file lists all information regarding the time use (primary key: part_id; foreing key:sday_id)
  • contact file: this data file lists all contacts and links to the survey day (primary key: contact_id; foreign key: sday_id, part_id)
  • dictionary file: this file contains the dictionary to interpret the columns properly

Each dataset has two versions: one version is the ‘common’ file in which variables that are available in most contact surveys are included; the other version is the ‘extra’ file in which more specific variables related to the survey are included. Merging both files can be done based on the primary key.

With each dataset, you will find the DOI to refer to the dataset itself and the publication reference. Please cite both.
