Welcome to Data Zoom!

Data Zoom is a project developed by the Economics Department of PUC-Rio. It aims to promote access, processing, and analysis of Brazilian microdata by researchers, students, journalists, and those interested in economic, social, and environmental topics. The project is also a laboratory that fosters human capital, where our students are trained to develop products under an open data concept.

Our products include statistical packages in Stata and R which ease the extraction, manipulation, visualization and analysis of brazilian data. For more information, visit our page on GitHub and be aware of our latest updates.

In case you have used one of our products, please cite us and send a copy of your work to datazoom@econ.puc-rio.br. We are interested in learning more about the studies where our work proved to be useful.
