Join this session of the Department of Economics Academic Talks Online Webinar Series titled "Introducing the ERF Data Portal to the Researchers" featuring May Gadalla, associate professor and the statistics manager at the Economic Research Forum (ERF) and Dalia Hany, statistician at the ERF. The session will be moderated by Rania Roushdy, associate professor of practice, at the Department of Economics, at the AUC School of Business.

The ERF data portal has more than 100 micro level data sets from different countries in the MENA region that cover a wide time span. ERF has long recognized that micro data is essential for conducting solid policy-relevant research. And since data is a public good, ERF has worked to make these micro level data sets available to the researchers in the region. The talk will give a brief about how to use the data portal to request the data, and will introduce the different sets of data that are available at the portal and their wide use.
