DIME-SHS is a platform for the collection and dissemination of data for quantitative and qualitative research in HSS. It has three components:

  • collection of quantitative data, together with innovative protocols (use of Internet and telephone)
  • setup of databases of qualitative data
  • collection and analysis of spontaneous expressions on the web

Impact of the specific and rigorous knowledge of French social data.

DIME-SHS is readily integrated into the national infrastructure of data production and management for the human and social sciences (PROGEDO) and into the CESSDA infrastructure, the European extension, which ensures widespread shared use.

These data will be accessible for master’s and doctoral students; they will be training support.

This investment will, over time, make it possible to significantly reduce the costs of investigation, by reducing the cost of data collection.
