Democracy That Delivers

Webbink, Ellen

Database manager Indices of Social Development, Institute of Social Studies

Ellen Webbink studied sociology (MA) at Radboud University Nijmegen (RUN). Since 2002 she has been working at the Department of Economics at the same university.

As a junior researcher she has worked on building the Database Developing World (DDW) in which many datasets with micro level information for developing and transition countries have been brought together, made comparable and have been enriched with contextual data at sub-national and national level. The DDW is used for comparative multilevel research on educational participation, child labor, women's labor market participation, reproductive health, fertility, and child mortality.

Ellen is now finishing her PhD dissertation on child labor in developing countries and started working at the Institute of Social Studies (ISS) of Erasmus University Rotterdam (located in The Hague) as database manager for project Indices for Social Development (ISD).
