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: Continuous
    Frequency:
    Annual
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.)

  • Face-to-face interview
