The Ukraine National Data Bank of Sociological Data “Kyiv archive”

The Ukraine National Data Bank of Sociological Data “Kyiv archive” (Data Bank) was created in 2015 by the Kyiv International Institute of Sociology (KIIS) and the Center for “Social indicators”, together with the National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy, thanks to financing by the International Renaissance Foundation.

The Kyiv archive was created to preserve data from social surveys conducted in Ukraine and to make such data easily and freely accessible to all interested persons or entities both in Ukraine and abroad. Currently it is the only archive in Ukraine which collects, preserves and provides open access to sociological data for a wide range of users. The Data Bank already has a host institution and funding institution: Kyiv International Institute of Sociology.

The Data Bank stores and shares data from the social sciences. We do not prioritise specific disciplines, however the current collection contains mainly survey data for sociology and political sciences, which reflects the data provided by depositors. Both quantitative and qualitative traditional-scale data for the period from the earliest studies in modern Ukraine history (1989-1991) up until now can be stored in the archive. However, for the time being we only have quantitative data.
