New Scientific Use File of Starting Cohort 5 (First-Year Students) released


New data for the NEPS Starting Cohort 5 are now available in version 15.0.0 for scientific use.

The current Scientific Use File (doi:10.5157/NEPS:SC5:15.0.0) contains new data from the fifteenth wave of the NEPS starting cohort of first-year students. In the course of telephone interviews (CATI), primarily the life histories of the respondents were updated since the time of the last interview. The student teachers, teacher training graduates and employed teachers of the basic sample and of the teacher training oversample were also asked additional questions about the teaching profession and the teaching traineeship. The Field Report on the website in the section „Documentation“ provides detailed information on 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 as well as numerous other materials.
