Based on a NATO advanced research workshop held in August 1997 at the U. of Essex in Colchester, UK, these proceedings represent an international, interdisciplinary meta-discussion of the dissemination of machine-readable social science data in transitional societies. The first of the two dozen papers sets the agenda, overviewing the demand for data, the research and technological imperatives, policy underpinnings, costs, and issues of dissemination without access and access without dissemination. Some contributors address the broad context of data networking in a changing Europe, while others directly confront the Russian data infrastructure which requires tackling the center-periphery issue, setting database priorities, defining the statistician's role in a market as vs. planned economy, and providing greater Internet access.
