Introduction

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

Open Source version of μ-ARGUS

Partly funded by Eurostat, a project was started on 20 December 2012 to port the at that time most recent version of μ-ARGUS to an Open Source version. The resulting version should contain the possibility to be run on a Windows platform as well as on a Linux/Unix platform.
