MONA – Microdata Online Access

MONA (Microdata Online Acceess) is a system that allows the user access to databases and to carry out processing of the data via the Internet. However, the databases remain physically at Statistics Sweden.

Microdata becomes visible for the user on the computer screen and the results of the processing are sent in aggregated form via e-mail to the user for further processing. The user can also store tables at Statistics Sweden for further processing.

Users of MONA have to sign the terms of use for microdata.
