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.

SOEP-IS for new research questions: call for proposals for the 2023 survey http://www.diw.de/sixcms/detail.php?id=diw_01.c.834427.en Researchers in Germany and abroad are invited to submit proposals for the next round of the SOEP Innovation Sample (SOEP-IS). For those not yet familiar with SOEP-IS, this unique random sample of German households (N = 2,800 households with about 4,000 respondents) offers great potential as a source of household micro-data, particularly for researchers seeking information that is not available in SOEP-Core—for example, specific information on households or on people’s opinions. For more details see below or our website.

Because the SOEP-IS field period now takes place in the spring of each year, as in the SOEP Core, the timelines for applications have changed somewhat.

Deadlines for the 2023 survey:
Brief description of project by May 31, 2022
If invited, complete proposal by June 30, 2022

Please note: We have a template for the complete proposal. Please visit our website at https://www.diw.de/soep-is for all details.

Your contact for any questions: David Richter (drichter@diw.de)

Please feel free to circulate this call for proposals in your scientific community.

More information on SOEP-IS:
SOEP-IS can accommodate not only short-term experiments but also longer-term survey modules that are not suitable for SOEP-Core, whether because the survey instruments are still relatively new or because of the specific issues dealt with in the research. Up to now, the SOEP-IS has included (complex) economic behavioral experiments, Implicit Association Tests (IAT), and complex procedures to measure time use (Day Reconstruction Method, DRM).
The SOEP-IS was launched in 2011, and each year since then, researchers at universities and research institutes worldwide have been invited to submit proposals for inclusion in the subsequent year’s survey. A competitive referee process is conducted to select the “best” research questions and operationalizations for implementation in the SOEP-IS. The SOEP Research Data Center distributes the SOEP-IS data to external users as an independent dataset.
Data from SOEP-IS modules are provided exclusively to the researchers who submitted the respective proposals for an initial 12-month period. After this embargo has ended, the data are released to the entire SOEP user community for secondary analysis.
An overview of all SOEP-IS modules to date can be found here.
As a new technical feature, the 2014 SOEP-IS premiered the use of 111 smart phones for data collection using the Experience Sampling Method (ESM). If you have an idea for using ESM in the SOEP-IS, please contact us for details.

Congratulations! http://www.diw.de/sixcms/detail.php?id=diw_01.c.830071.en ]]> Wed, 24 Nov 2021 10:20:00 +0200 http://www.diw.de/sixcms/detail.php?id=diw_01.c.830071.en Start of the 2021 SOEP User Survey http://www.diw.de/sixcms/detail.php?id=diw_01.c.830073.en Once again, we warmly invite you to participate in our survey of SOEP users.

This year, we are very curious about your assessments and experiences with our SOEP data, especially your work with specific data sets or samples, as well as the data format of your analysis.

With your participation, you contribute significantly to the continuous improvement of our data offering.

You can also participate in the survey if you have not received an individual link from us. To do so, click on the following registration link:
https://fragebogen.diw.de/limesurvey/index.php/896727?lang=en

You will then receive an e-mail with an invitation to the survey.

The user survey will be active up to December 23, 2021.

Participation in the survey is of course voluntary and the results will only be stored anonymously. This means that no names or addresses will be recorded. The data will only be analysed at DIW Berlin and only by DIW Berlin staff. The results of the survey will be presented in early 2022 on the above-mentioned website and in the SOEPnewsletter.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at usersurvey@diw.de.

We thank you very much for your help and wish you continued success in your analysis of the SOEP data.
