Since the establishment of the SCIP database in 1990, several comparative research projects have relied on SPIN data and provided new and largely unique results on the causes and consequences of welfare state reform. Over the years, SPIN data have been used in a large number of publications, including academic text books and journal articles, government commissioned reports and articles in major national and international newspapers.
