The Digital Social Science Core Facility (DIGSSCORE) is an infrastructure for advanced social science data collection and multi-disciplinary research. DIGSSCORE takes advantage of changes in technology and research methodology, and is an infrastructure with three population panels: The Norwegian Citizen Panel, the Norwegian Panel of Representatives and the Norwegian Panel of Public Administration.
