Despite this difficult time, our work at the SOEP continues almost unchanged. We have found ways to create our SOEP datasets and documentation and distribute the data through the usual channels, to launch new surveys (e.g., SOEP-CoV), and of course, to conduct and publish research with our data. Only our events have had to be cancelled: above all the SOEP Conference, which was scheduled for June 2020, and our SOEPcampus workshops. We are working to reschedule or provide alternatives for these events. In the meantime, we hope you have not suffered any severe direct or indirect negative effects of the coronavirus.
Stay safe and healthy!
