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


New data for the NEPS Starting Cohort 6 are now available in version 14.0.0 for scientific use.

The current Scientific Use File (doi:10.5157/NEPS:SC6:14.0.0) contains newly added data from the fourteenth wave of the Starting Cohort of adults. The field period ranged from September 2021 to October 2022. The survey consisted of a telephone interview (CATI) to update the life history data and - if consent was given - a processing of tasks in the competence areas of natural sciences and computer knowledge (ICT) within the framework of a personal interview (CAPI) in the respondent's household. Due to the Corona situation, the CAPI field had to be stopped from November 2021 to April 2022. Subsequent to the CATI interview, all respondents were invited to participate in an additional online survey (CAWI). Detailed information about the content and the realization of this survey wave can be found in the corresponding Field Report on the website in the section „Documentation“. On this website you will also get the Release Notes with information about relevant adjustments regarding the data preparation as well as the Data Manual, which offers a comprehensive introduction to the handling of the data.
