New Scientific Use File of Starting Cohort 6 (Adults) released


Data for the NEPS Starting Cohort 6 are now available in version 13.0.0 for scientific use.

The current Scientific Use File (doi:10.5157/NEPS:SC6:13.0.0) contains new data from the thirteenth wave of the NEPS starting cohort of adults (12th NEPS wave). The fieldwork period ranged from September 2020 to April 2021. Due to the impact of the Corona pandemic, all participants were interviewed exclusively by telephone (CATI). The interviews focused on updating the biography and questions about the Corona pandemic. There was no testing of competencies in this wave. The Field Report on the website in the section „Documentation“ provides detailed information on the content and the realization of this survey wave. There you will also find the Data Manual as an introduction to working with the data, the Release Notes with explanations on the current data edition, and numerous other materials.
