Germany 2013 added to the LIS Database

One new dataset from Germany, DE13, (Wave IX), has been added to the Luxembourg Income Study Database (LIS).

The dataset is from wave 31 of the German Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP).

In addition to releasing the Wave IX dataset, the 7 earlier German datasets based on the same survey (DE10/07/04/00/94/89/84) have been revised for consistency.

See Revision notes for details.

The LIS Database includes:

  • Household- and person-level data on market and government income, demography, employment, and expenditures.
  • Datasets from countries in Europe, North America, Latin America, Africa, Asia, and Australasia.
  • Income datasets since 1968, organized into “waves” corresponding to regular intervals.
