Find, Use, Cite, Repeat: A short guide on how to cite microdata from Statistics Netherlands

Despite the improvements in the findability and reusability of data promoted by the FAIR principles and the Joint Declaration of Data Principles, it is not always easy to trace back data sources from publications. In this article, the FAIR Support Team discusses the importance of citing data and, in particular, how to cite Dutch administrative data (gathered by Statistics Netherlands (CBS)). They furthermore show how the ODISSEI Portal can be helpful in this process.
