Report from the SIMSAM mid-term evaluation

In 2008, the Swedish Research Council announced a general grant and funds for a research school (both for five years) within the scope of the SIMSAM Initiative (SIMSAM = Swedish Initiative for research on Microdata in the Social And Medical sciences).

This initiative aimed to stimulate a new generation of researchers and research leaders in disciplines which could in the best way possible take advantage of data available in different Swedish registries. A panel consisting of internationally recognised experts in fields that fall under SIMSAM’s responsibility conducted a mid-term evaluation of SIMSAM in November 2011. The findings of the evaluation are presented in this report.
