Speaker

Sandra Bohmann

The purpose of the workshop is to introduce and familiarize researchers with the file structure and potential of the SOEP panel data. Particularly, the workshop focuses on the longitudinal components of the dataset. We demonstrate and discuss the ability of the longitudinal household design to
a) validate causal interpretations,
b) combine characteristics from different phases of the life course and
c) track dynamics between different household members over time.
