μ-ARGUS home page
μ-ARGUS is a software program designed to create safe micro-data files. 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 was available.
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.
