Start of the 2021 SOEP User Survey

Report of November 19, 2021

Once again, we warmly invite you to participate in our survey of SOEP users.

This year, we are very curious about your assessments and experiences with our SOEP data, especially your work with specific data sets or samples, as well as the data format of your analysis.

With your participation, you contribute significantly to the continuous improvement of our data offering.

You can also participate in the survey if you have not received an individual link from us. To do so, click on the following registration link:

You will then receive an e-mail with an invitation to the survey.

The user survey will be active up to December 23, 2021.

Participation in the survey is of course voluntary and the results will only be stored anonymously. This means that no names or addresses will be recorded. The data will only be analysed at DIW Berlin and only by DIW Berlin staff. The results of the survey will be presented in early 2022 on the above-mentioned website and in the SOEPnewsletter.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at

We thank you very much for your help and wish you continued success in your analysis of the SOEP data.
