Survey Research Data Archive
The Survey Research Data Archive (SRDA) was founded in November 1994 by the Center of Survey Research (CSR), formerly the Office of Survey Research. SRDA engages in the systematic acquisition, organization, preservation, and dissemination of academic survey data in Taiwan. Not only does SRDA consolidate valuable survey data in a convenient location, but also provides rich materials for national and international academic research.
The datasets include information shared by researchers, as well as surveys carried out by SRDA, government departments, and other academic organizations. Prior to the release of the datasets, the confidentiality and sensitivity of every survey dataset were evaluated. Standard data management and cleaning procedures were applied to ensure data accuracy and completeness. In addition, metadata and relevant supplement files were edited and attached.
To ensure data security, SRDA obtained ISO 27001:2005 certification for its digital data storage and usage services in 2010. SRDA is dedicated to protecting not only the confidentiality, completeness, and applicability of survey data, but also confidential information pertaining to SRDA members in the process of transmission, archiving, and application. In addition, SRDA also obtained ISO 27001: 2013 transition certifications in 2015.
For the past few years, SRDA has been taking appropriate measures to ensure sustainable and trustworthy data infrastructure. In June 2019, SRDA was certified by CoreTrustSeal as a reliable data repository.
