The partners in GGS Belgium have invested much into the collection of a high-quality social demographic dataset which opens numerous research opportunities. Therefore, we would like to encourage all researchers who are interested in working with the Belgian GGS data to do so. In order to stimulate the use of the Belgian GGS data we try to provide a (technical) documentation that is as complete as possible.


The scientific support team of GGS Belgium has already carried out analyses and research. The results are published in the following publication series: the GGS Belgium Paper Series and the GGS Belgium Policy Briefs. The GGS Belgium Paper Series delve in depth into some issues covered by the GGS data while the GGS Belgium Policy Briefs aim at giving concise and attractive overviews of research results. The first issues of the GGS Belgium Paper Series are the technical documentation of the Belgian GGS data.
