Two types of Growing Up in Ireland quantitative data files can be accessed: Anonymised Microdata Files and Researcher Microdata Files.
• The Anonymised Microdata File (AMF) is a publicly available anonymised dataset. Researchers wishing to access the AMF should apply to the Irish Social Science Data Archive (ISSDA) at www.ucd.ie/issda.
