In version 2 of the GHDx, when you view a record, you may see a purple button that you can click to go to the website of the data provider. The content of the button indicates what level of access is available:
- Microdata access: Download - the microdata are available for download either directly or with a simple registration process that can be completed in one day or less.
- Microdata access: Register - the microdata are available for download with a registration process that takes longer than a day.
- Microdata access: Request - the microdata are available by special request to the providing organization. There may be a fee for the data.
- Tabulations only - Microdata are not available (or not applicable). Tabulations are available either in a standalone file or in a report.
These values are also available as a filter on your search results. For example, if you conduct a search for "family planning," you can next filter by "Microdata access: Download" to see only those results where microdata are readily available. See these example results.
