Description

    Update of the original SOEP data set http://dx.doi.org/10.5684/soep.v28.

    In some cases, reports of a past divorce were not taken into account in the data generation process. In addition, the reported year of death of a former partner was in some cases overwritten by the respective current year of the interview. This affected not only the start and end date of some spells but also missing information and validation checks in the data sets BIOCOUPLM, BIOCOUPLY, BIOMARSM, BIOMARSY.

    The mistakenly overwritten information in the generation of BIOCOUPL$ affected validation checks in the data set $FAMSTD. A majority of the formerly missing information is now available. However, the number of implausible answers has also risen in the process.

Sampling

All samples of SOEP are multi-stage random samples which are regionally clustered. The respondents (households) are selected by random-walk.

Time Dimension
  • Longitudinal: Panel
Collection Mode
  • Face-to-face interview
  • 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.)
