Developed societies have always been aware of the importance of data storing unrelatedly the source - public life, scientific research or events recorded through various statistics. The development of technology has brought new methods that have facilitated and accelerated the process of archiving and sharing data through the development of digital archives. In some countries, digital archives appeared in the 21st century, while some societies have a tradition longer than half a century. The subject of this chapter is digital archives in social sciences and the possibility of measuring positive impacts on science and society. Impact assessment of data archives in the social sciences is a very challenging process. For that purpose, Charles Beagrie Ltd, London with The Centre for Strategic Economic Studies, University Victoria, the US in 2012 developed the methodology on “Economic Impact Evaluation of the Economic and Social Data Service” which is used in this chapter. This part aims to present benefits of digital archives, both direct and indirect, private and public, near-term and long-term based on a case study “RRPP Data Collection in Serbia”, implemented by the Institute of Economic Sciences, Belgrade.
