The financial crisis of 2007-08 has highlighted the need for using granular data on financial institutions and markets to detect risks and imbalances in the financial sector. Data producers such as central banks and national statistical institutes are witnessing a growing need to improve granular-data access and sharing. When making granular data available, data producers face significant legal and technical challenges related to, among others, safeguarding statistical confidentiality. This paper introduces the INEXDA international network, which provides a platform for data producers to exchange practical experiences on the accessibility of granular data, metadata as well as techniques for statistical analysis and data protection.
