The current Scientific Use File (doi:10.5157/NEPS:SC6:12.0.0) contains new data from the twelfth wave (or the eleventh wave of NEPS main surveys) of the adults cohort. The content of the telephone interviews (CATI, with option for CAPI switch) - conducted from fall 2019 to spring 2020 - focused on updating the biography since the last survey, supplemented by several cross-sectional questions on various topics. Competence testing did not take place. The Field Report on the website in the section „Documentation“ provides detailed information on the realization of this survey wave. There you can also access the updated Data Manual, which has been expanded to include new notes on special features (Chapter 5), as an introduction to working with the data, the Release Notes with explanations on the current data edition, and numerous other materials.
