Registration for the NEPS data training

  • Basic modules provide knowledge on the theoretical and methodological framework of the NEPS study as well as on how to work with the data documentation. They support first-time users in accessing the data and in taking the first steps towards preparing analyses based on NEPS data.

  • Advanced modules In-depth modules address selected topics of NEPS data use. The offer to data users ranges from assistance on general challenges of data preparation to instructions on how to deal with specific data packages and data formats.

The trainings with basic and advanced modules take place in presentation form with the opportunity for individual follow-up questions. The material is made available to the participants after the course. The contents are applicable to all NEPS starting cohorts.
