We host regional data that ranges from socio-economic data on 1km² raster level to regional real estate price indices and accessibility. Moreover, we georeference larger data sets or prepare small-scale data at in raster format. Almost all data are available as panel/(repeated) cross-section data. Most data are available for non-commercial research as Scientific Use File or within guest stays at the FDZ Ruhr. Some data are also available as Public Use Files.
Our microdata covers various topics. These datasets were collected within projects of the RWI, prepared by the FDZ Ruhr, and then provided for non-commercial research.
