NACDA at ICPSR announces the availability of three sets of microdata census samples assembled under a project entitled " The Dynamics of Population Aging in ECE Countries."

OR's cannot order the data for campus-wide use; each user must sign and return an individual Pledge of Confidentiality. Pledge forms can be obtained from ICPSR User Support or through the NACDA section of the ICPSR Web site. The completed pledge must then be mailed back to ICPSR User support at: ICPSR User Support: PO BOX 1248 - Ann Arbor, Mi 48106-1248
