  • Abstract

    The 17th So­cial Sur­vey is part of the se­ries of stud­ies on the eco­nomic and so­cial con­di­tion of stu­dent life in Ger­many, which ex­ists since 1951. It is a cross-sec­tional sur­vey that is usu­ally con­ducted every three years. The core of the So­cial Sur­vey in­cludes ques­tions on ac­cess to higher ed­u­ca­tion, struc­tural char­ac­ter­istics of stud­ies and the course of stud­ies, the so­cial and eco­nomic sit­u­a­tion (fi­nanc­ing of stud­ies, cost of liv­ing, gain­ful em­ploy­ment, hous­ing sit­u­a­tion), top­ics re­lat­ing to the fields of ac­tiv­ity of the Stu­den­ten­werke as well as socio-de­mo­graphic char­ac­ter­is­tics.
