If you intend to publish research that is based or makes use of CompNet data we kindly require you to: (1) include a reference to User Guide, Cross-Country Report and Cross-Country Comparability Report and (2) include the following footnote naming the caveats for interpretation of the results: "The reader must be aware that data collection rules and procedures across countries are different, and out of CompNet’s control. Hence, despite all efforts made to improve sample comparability across countries (including the use of population weights), some country samples might still suffer from biases. For a more detailed account of raw data characteristics and sample biases, please refer to the Cross-Country Comparability Report."
