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


New data for the NEPS Starting Cohort 6 are now available in version 11.0.0 for scientific use.

The current Scientific Use File (doi:10.5157/NEPS:SC6:11.0.0) contains newly added information from the eleventh wave of the NEPS adults’ starting cohort. The biographical interviews were conducted between September 2018 and April 2019 as telephone survey (CATI; alternatively personal interviews: CAPI). Competence measurements were not included in this wave. Detailed information on the realization of the survey can be found in the corresponding Field Report on the website in the section „Documentation“. A new feature of the Scientific Use File is a dataset with generated plausible values for selected competence measures from previous waves. Additional explanations on the current data edition are provided in the Release Notes. Furthermore, the Data Manual offers a general introduction to the research data of the adult cohort as well as links to further materials.
