This dataset in Stata format is based on the original SOEP data, but provides the data in significantly altered and fully anonymous form. This means that the practice dataset can be used without the need for any contracts or user agreements. The practice dataset consists of original variables, covers five time points, and is available in the “long” format. The dataset is provided in German and English.

Collection period: 2015-2019
Publication Date: 31.01.2022
Population: Persons living in private households in Germany.

Selection: To anonymize the variables, an algorithm was used that largely maintains the longitudinal consistency in the original data.
Usability: The practice dataset is suited to calculating panel-specific univariate statistics (intra- and inter-individual correlation patterns, transition rates) in classes on descriptive methods. In the context of multivariate analysis, the dataset is useful for teaching (panel) regression techniques
