Description
  • Abstract

    Update of the original SOEP data set http://dx.doi.org/10.5684/soep.v27 In the file COGDJ, the 2010 data had not yet been updated in the released version. In the data sets ZHBRUTTO and BAHBRUTTO, some of the English labels shifted position and had to be redefined. Also, in the $PGEN data sets, no English value labels were generated for the new variables on educational degrees and training qualifications prior to joining the panel. This applies to the English labels for the following variables: FIELD$$, DEGREE$$, and TRAINA$$–TRAIND$$. In the SOEPlong data version distributed earlier this year, the variables HID and NETT1 in the file PPFADL had missing values in 2010.
Temporal Coverage
  • 1984 / 2010
Sampled Universe
Persons living in private households in Germany
Sampling
All samples of SOEP are multi-stage random samples which are regionally clustered. The respondents (households) are selected by random-walk.
Collection Mode
  • The interview methodology of the SOEP is based on a set of pre-tested questionnaires for households and individuals. Principally an interviewer tries to obtain face-to-face interviews with all members of a given survey household aged 16 years and over. Additionally one person (head of household) is asked to answer a household related questionnaire covering information on housing, housing costs, and different sources of income. This covers also some questions on children in the household up to 16 years of age, mainly concerning attendance at institutions (kindergarten, elementary school, etc.)
