SOEP Wave Report 2013

The SOEP’s 2013 Wave Report has just been published. It provides an overview of the SOEP’s activities in 2013, a year filled with numerous activities marking the SOEP’s thirtieth survey wave. These included a timeline series tracing the development of the SOEP survey and life in Germany in the context of broader global events, the SOEP Anniversary Colloquium on Happiness Research, and Germany Federal President Gauck’s recognition of SOEP respondents for their unique form of community service. The Wave Report covers all these events as well as other public relations activities.

The Wave Report also covers innovations and updates in the 2013 data distribution (SOEP v29, data 1984-2012) and TNS Infratest’s report on fieldwork for the thirtieth wave of SOEP-Core and the third boost sample of SOEP-IS.

Short research papers by members of the SOEP group in this year’s Wave Report once again give an impression of the current research questions that are being explored with the SOEP data.
