Project Management

Project Period

July 1, 2019 - December 31, 2022

Funded by

Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF)

In Cooperation With

Institute for Employment Research (IAB) of the German Federal Employment Agency (BA)
Berlin Institute for Integration and Migration Research (BIM) at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin
Research Centre on Migration, Integration, and Asylum of the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF-FZ)

The application for the project “Conception, Implementation, Preparation, Register Linkage, Analysis, and Data Provision/Distribution of a Representative Sample of Refugee Families (GeFam)“ approved by the BMBF envisions that this sample be doubled by another 1,600 “anchor” respondents along with their families. The GeFam boost sample was designed to increase the number of individuals in the sample who came to Germany with their children or with other underage family members. Fieldwork for the boost sample is set to begin in August 2016. At present, around one-third of all refugees arriving in Germany are minors, and about 90% are accompanied by their parents or other adult family members.

GeFam 2 extended the original duration of the project (July 1, 2016 - June 30, 2019) for an additional three years.
