A new version of the data package „Survey data from the adult cohort of the National Educational Panel Study (NEPS-SC6) linked with administrative data of the Institute for Employment Research (ADIAB)“, first released in April 2018, is now available. On the one hand, the new version includes administrative data from 1975 to 2017 and thus offers an extension of the covered time span by two years. On the other hand, the survey data of the NEPS Starting Cohort 6 now extend up to and including the tenth wave. Data users involved in projects with an existing data use agreement for NEPS-SC6-ADIAB can informally apply for an update by sending an e-mail to the Research Data Center of the Federal Employment Agency at the Institute for Employment Research (IAB-FDZ).
