The first Scientific Use File of the German Social Cohesion Panel (SCP) is now available
The SCP is a newly established longitudinal study that captures multiple aspects of social cohesion in Germany. It is based on a representative population sample drawn from the German population registers and was carried out for the first time in 2021. The annual survey is directed not only at the selected individuals but also at all other adult household members. The SCP is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), led in cooperation by the Research Institute Social Cohesion (RISC), and the German Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP), and implemented by the survey institute infas.
The released dataset includes initial survey data and generated indicators from 13,055 household anchor persons drawn from the population registers and subsequently interviewed. Future datasets will be expanded to include household information and survey data of all adult household members.
More information on the dataset as well as the data documentation is available on the FGZ Landing Page
