Data Release Schedule

Our aim is to provide the fully edited and comprehensively documented research data of the German National Educational Panel Study (NEPS) as soon as possible for scientific analyses. The general guideline is to release Scientific Use Files no later than 18 months after data collection has been completed. Due to the high quality standards, but also due to the amount and complexity of the data, this target cannot be achieved in all cases.

The data release schedule presented here gives information about the timing of fieldwork phases (black bars) and the subsequent 18-months period of data preparation (grey bars), as well as the dates of already realized data releases (green diamonds) and planned data releases until the end of 2017 (white diamonds, subject to change).
