Our Secure Research Data Centre
Researchers can use sensitive, restricted-access data in our Secure Research Data Centre at the University of Cape Town. These data include person- household - and institution-level variables that could make identification of respondents possible. They therefore need to be used by responsible researchers in a secure facility. Our secure centre has approved protected access repository status under the Open Science Framework.
