Research projects using the aggregated or granular data of the Banque de France
Dear Madam, dear Sir,
The Banque de France opens an access room to data (Open Data Room to researchers). The Open Data room offers several workstations providing secure access to a broad set of anonymized granular data and aggregated time series, collected or produced by the Banque de France. The Open Data Room is located in the premises of the Banque de France - Directorate General for Statistics, 37 rue du Louvre 75002 Paris.
The access to the Open Data Room and the conditions of use are subject to a prior agreement of the Data Access Committee. The Committee, whose composition is provided as an attachment, brings together Banque de France officials and experts from the academic world. For your information, almost all of the already expressed requests have received a positive response. The Committee shall decide on the basis of a synthetic presentation of the research project with the accompanying application for data.
The data are made available, quickly and free of charge, as soon as the Committee gives its consent. Researchers can bring pre-existing files for the purposes of matching data with Banque de France data. These files will be loaded in the Open Data Room.
In the Open Data Room, the researchers will have access to information on companies, households and financial institutions.
Applications may be formulated as of now. Simply fill out the form and transmit it to following the email address: DGS-DIMOSemail@example.com. For more information, please contact Jerome Coffinet (0142924120), Head of the engineering and statistical methodology service or Lionel Potier (0142924836), his deputy.
For more general questions, I will be very glad, as well as my Deputy, Christian Pfister, and Renaud Lacroix, Director of engineering and statistical project management, in Cc of this message, to provide all the answers to the questions you will submit.
Thank you in advance for your contribution to the Open Data room, and please accept, Madam, Sir, the assurance of my highest consideration.
