A key objective of the International Household Survey Network is to provide data management tools to producers of microdata. These cover all phases of survey implementation, from survey design to data dissemination. Products include a suite of free, open source, DDI compliant data curation tools, known as the IHSN Microdata Management Toolkit. The IHSN Microdata Management Toolkit is being used in National Statistics Offices, the main data producers in developing countries, as well as increasingly by Universities and large International Development Agencies. This presentation will discuss the latest version of our data dissemination application, the National Data Archive as well as our future roadmap for this tool. We will also introduce our Question Bank and our new citations tool and central survey catalogue. Usage examples will include those at a large International Development Agency, a University and some National Statistics Offices.
