Update of the Stata practice dataset for use in the college classroom
March 15, 2022
The practice dataset can be downloaded from our website and used without signing a data distribution contract. The data are provided under a CC-BY-SA license.
The updated dataset uses original variables from SOEP-Core version 36 in longitudinal format. It contains a total of 15 variables covering the last four survey years, 2015-2019. In addition, the range of variables contained in the practice dataset has also been slightly restructured and expanded to enable better simulation of income and labor market analyses.
We now also provide the do-file used to create the dataset, which can be downloaded along with the data.
The practice dataset is available in German and English.
