New Scientific Use File of Starting Cohort 1 (Newborns) released


New data for the NEPS Starting Cohort 1 are now available in version 6.0.0 for scientific use.

The current Scientific Use File (doi:10.5157/NEPS:SC1:6.0.0) contains new information from the sixth wave of the NEPS newborn starting cohort. The survey was carried out in spring/summer 2017 in the form of personal face-to-face interviews plus paper-based questionnaires with the parents as well as the realization of three tablet-based competence measures with the target children (CAPI+PAPI+TBT, alternatively CATI without competence measurement). In addition, written questionnaires were passed on via the parents to external child care persons of the target children (PAPI for educators and institution managers of kindergartens).

The corresponding Field Report on the website in the section “Documentation“ provides detailed information on the realization of this wave. There you will also find the Release Notes with explanations on the current data edition as well as numerous other materials. Soon an updated Data Manual with comprehensive information about the survey design and the research data of Starting Cohort 1 will also be made available there.
