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


New data for the NEPS Starting Cohort 6 are now available in version 9.0.0 for scientific use.

The current Scientific Use File (doi:10.5157/NEPS:SC6:9.0.0) contains new data from the ninth wave (or eighth NEPS main survey) of the adult cohort. The survey was carried out in autumn/winter 2016/2017 primarily as a face-to-face survey (CAPI) with the target persons. The focus was on a (repeated) measurement of the competence domains reading and mathematics, whereby the tasks had to be carried out on a laptop (TBT) for the first time. The corresponding Field Report on the website in the section “Documentation“ provides detailed information on the realization of this survey. 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 6 will also be made available there.
