Accessing the Data

TILDA provides access to the datasets for research use through pseudonymised publicly accessible dataset files, and through an on-site Hot Desk Facility.

To access the Hot Desk Facility:

Please click here for details on how to access the TILDA Hot Desk Facility.

If the requirements of the TILDA hotdesk do not meet your research needs, please email to discuss.

To access the public datasets:

The publicly accessible dataset files are hosted by the Irish Social Science Data Archive based in University College Dublin, and the Interuniversity Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) based in the University of Michigan.

Researchers wishing to access the data must complete a request form, available on either the ISSDA* or ICPSR website.

*(Please be aware ISSDA are currently undertaking some policy and procedural updates and as such, data access has been temporarily suspended. ISSDA hope to resume data access to TILDA dataset shortly.)


Using the datasets

TILDA have produced a number of videos to provide additional detail on the public datasets with some worked examples on how to use them. Please click below to view these training videos.
