2020 Music Professionals Survey Wave

Reproducible data ingestion in practice

If your analytical work has used a certain type of data at least two times in the past, it is likely that the data will be needed again. This is a good time to make the data ingestion automatic and reproducible.

Increase The Value Of Market Research With Open Data And Survey Harmonization

The very techincal terms of ex ante , ex post or retrospective harmonization hide opportunities that can significantly increase the value for money in empirical market research, potentially increasing the value of a high-cost, high-value survey to multiple times of its euro value.

Regionalized Cultural Access and Participation (Books And Libraries) And Science Attitudes Variables

Our new R package, Eurobarometer, helps the creation of data panels and regionalized statistics from the Pan-European survey’s microdata. This allows the creation of many new statistical indicators for the CEEMID Music Observatory and for many market and policy research tasks.

First CEEMID Regional Open Data Release

In the preparation to make the CEEMID available as an open-source data integration platform and as a source of open data for the European Music Observatory, the first regional dataset was published today.

Comparing Social Distancing in Europe

Based on the locational data of various smartphones and application data, we know that people spend 10-15% more time at home since January, and 40-50% less in their workplaces. Similar data is available for other locations.

The Central European Music Industry Report 2020 was updated with a technical annex that points out to the new wiki documentation website of CEEMID to make our work more accessible for designing the European Music Observatory.
