Project set-up

When you have obtained all required permissions for your study, you are ready to submit a request to Statistics Denmark to set up a project retrieving data from ‘Projektdatabase NCRR / CIRRAU’ and containing the input data needed for your study.

The request needs to follow the format described in the file 'Request_form_StatDenmark' and the enclosed variables lists should follow the format described in "CIRRAU_DSTrequests_varlists".
Among other things, you need to write up a short project description and a clear description of the study population. Furthermore, you need to enclose lists of all variables to be included in the project, stating the range of years for which you need each variable. You may find documentation for all the data in the CIRRAU database under Data documentation. Remember: you have to report the file number(s) from your permission(s) from the Danish Data Protection Agency and the research support unit at Sundhedsdatastyrelsen (when relevant).

Project requests and user information are emailed to the CIRRAU data manager at ati@econ.au.dk together with copies of your permission(s). 

Your project request will be submitted to Statistics Denmark (this assures our contact person that this is a CIRRAU project) and copies of relevant documents are stored.

When the project has been approved at Statistics Denmark and the CIRRAU data manager has received a list from you including all persons constituting your study population, data are extracted for set-up as soon as possible. Data are then made available to a local data manager at Statistics Denmark who places the data in your project folder. Meanwhile, submit user set-up forms to Statistics Denmark.
