µ-ARGUS is a software program designed to create safe micro-data files.  It is one of the main results of the CASC-project.
The CASC-project took a previous version of µ-ARGUS, developed a.o. during the SDC-project and prototypes before that, as a starting point. At the end of the CASC-project version 4.0 is available.

The ESSnet-project has made it possible to further extend µ-ARGUS. Version 4.2 is now available
