The Methods and Data Hub allows the Cluster’s members to access a repository of expertise, cultivate innovative research designs and generate an environment for collective learning about methodology. By marshalling existing expertise, setting up a custom-made infrastructure and managing cluster-generated high-quality data, the Methods and Data Hub supports researchers in making important contributions to the study of inequality. In addition, the Cluster is anchored in a research environment renowned for its methodological proficiency and builds on existing facilities at the University of Konstanz.
The Methods and Data Hub aims at:
- leveraging a broad set of methodological tools for analyzing inequality
- equipping inequality scholars with cutting-edge methodological expertise, and
- making available novel data to the scientific community
To achieve these goals, the Methods and Data Hub engages in a range of activities and provides resources for researchers at the Cluster.
