The dates and focus topics can be found in the table and the programs. The first day serves to get to know the NEPS data and its documentation in general by means of practical exercises for the preparation of an example analysis. On the second day, selected topics will be presented in detail. There will also be the opportunity to register for RemoteNEPS. Both days can also be attended separately. Special previous knowledge in handling the data is not necessary; in the exercises Stata is usually used. If non-German speakers are present, the course will be conducted in English.
