Update for Scientific Use File of Starting Cohort 6 (Adults) released


An updated data version 12.1.0 for the NEPS Starting Cohort 6 is now available for scientific use.

The current update for NEPS Starting Cohort 6 (doi:10.5157/NEPS:SC6:12.1.0) fixes an error of the last SUF release. In the Methods dataset, there were incorrect assignments of interviewers to age groups (tx80302). This has been corrected with the update. In addition, all variables with dates of surveys or competence tests were moved to the CohortProfile dataset (tx86***). Last but not least, in all spell datasets, the start and end dates in the harmonized subspells have been adjusted for revoked episodes. The Release Notes on the SC6 website in the “Documentation” section also inform about the changes.
