Visit to Statistics Netherlands, Heerlen



PhD fellows from the IEGD and GPAC2 PhD programmes, as well as students from the RMES programme at the Faculty of Arts and Social Science visited Statistics Netherlands in Heerlen, close to Maastricht.

During a workshop day designed around the themes ‘Big Data’, ‘Survey Design and Sampling’ and ‘Administrative Data’ we were informed by the professionals from Statistics Netherlands on the latest developments in the field, as well as cooperation opportunities between the UM, UNU-MERIT and their researchers.

Thanks to Prof. Hans Schmeets for the organisation and Statistics Netherlands for their hospitality.
