Update for Scientific Use File of Starting Cohort 1 (Newborns) released


An updated data version 9.1.0 for the NEPS Starting Cohort 1 is now available for scientific use.

With the current update for the NEPS Starting Cohort 1 (doi:10.5157/NEPS:SC1:9.1.0), the responses to the Corona-specific questions from wave 9 (spring/summer 2020) were integrated into the dataset pParent. The previous dataset pParentCORONA has been removed from the SUF accordingly. In addition, coding errors for data from the second survey wave have been corrected in three variables (tx8610m, tx8610y, p70012y_g2) as well as the label of one variable (pc14004) and the variable names for the competence domain of early reading (rxn9***). The Release Notes on the SC1 website in the “Documentation” section also provide information about the changes made.
