Due to a change of the survey institute, there was a delay in the data transfer this year. Unfortunately, we still could not include all information in this data delivery. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Key information for v38:

  • There are some additional data sets such as the INSTRUMENTATION data set.
  • A new Corona module in the household questionnaire has been introduced, the module is in the BLCORONA dataset.
  • The PEQUIV dataset is not yet available and will be added at a later date.
  • The establishment survey SOEP-LEE2 is also not yet available and will be delivered at a later date.

All other new features and changes can be found as a supplied "WhatsNew" document in the data package or in the Changes to the data set section of the current SOEP Core page.
