2015 SOEP-Core questionnaires online

The following topical modules were part of the SOEP-Core survey last year:

  • Control beliefs and reciprocity
  • Friends networks
  • Joint income
  • At the household level: household energy use


Last year’s SOEP survey was also the first to include detailed questions about the minimum wage. To give you an idea what data to expect in fall 2016, we have published the questionnaires on our website together with other fieldwork documents.


In late spring we will be making the minimum wage data available for analysis at DIW Berlin as part of a specially prepared EVA-MIN project dataset. Scholarships are available: please apply at the DIW Berlin website!
