Data for the NEPS Starting Cohort 2 are now available in version 10.0.0 for scientific use.

The current Scientific Use File (doi:10.5157/NEPS:SC2:10.0.0) contains new data from the tenth wave of the NEPS starting cohort of kindergarten children. The fieldwork period ranged from October 2020 to January 2021. The study was conducted as a written-postal interview (PAPI) with an online questionnaire (CAWI) as alternative. The student questionnaire included questions about school, health, and religiosity, as well as about interests and leisure activities. The survey in grade 9 was administered as an individual follow-up out of the school context. Testing of competencies was not included. 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 Release Notes with explanations on the current data edition, and other materials.
