Attrition and Selectivity of the NEPS Starting Cohorts: An Overview of the Past 8 Years

This article documents the number of target persons participating in the panel surveys of the National Educational Panel Study (NEPS) as well as the number of respondents who temporarily dropout and of those leaving the panel (attrition). NEPS comprises panel surveys with six mutually exclusive starting cohorts covering the complete life span. Sample sizes, numbers of participants and temporary as ...

Analyzing Nonresponse in Longitudinal Surveys Using Bayesian Additive Regression Trees: A Nonparametric Event History Analysis

Increasing nonresponse rates is a pressing issue for many longitudinal panel studies. Respondents frequently either refuse participation in single survey waves (temporary dropout) or discontinue participation altogether (permanent dropout). Contemporary statistical methods that are used to elucidate predictors of survey nonresponse are typically limited to small variable sets and ignore complex interaction ...

Corona-Tests sind zu selektiv, um auf tatsächliche Infektionszahlen zu schließen

Spätestens seit Ende März ist die Corona-Krise endgültig in Deutschland angekommen. Unklar ist aber bis heute, inwieweit die offizielle Fallzahl die tatsächliche Entwicklung der Epidemie widerspiegelt. Nutzen und Kosten einer möglichen Lockerung der einschränkenden Maßnahmen können allerdings nur dann sinnvoll betrachtet werden, wenn die Zahl der Erkrankten und die aktuelle Infektionsgeschwindigkeit ...

Self-Control: Determinants, Life Outcomes and Intergenerational Implications

This paper studies self-control in a nationally representative sample. Using the wellestablished Tangney scale to measure trait self-control, we find that people’s age as well as the political and economic institutions they are exposed to have an economically meaningful impact on their level of self-control. A higher degree of self-control is, in turn, associated...

Comparing Self-Reported and Partnership-Inferred Sexual Orientation in Household Surveys

Research comparing heterosexuals with bisexuals and homosexuals in economics and the social sciences typically relies on two strategies to identify sexual orientation in existing survey data of general populations. Probing respondents to self-report their sexual orientation is generally considered the preferred option. Since self-reports are unavailable in most large multidisciplinary surveys, often ...

Using Mathematical Graphs for Questionnaire Validation

We present an approach for studying three quality issues related to survey data, namely the detection of interviewer misbehaviour, the correct implementation of the questionnaire programming and possible redundant paths, which lead to case numbers hindering feasible statistical analysis. The idea is using a theoretical graph model for describing all possible paths through...

A Practical Guide for the Computation of Domain-Level Estimates with the Socio-Economic Panel (and Other Household Surveys)

There is a huge interest in deriving and comparing socio-economic indicators across societal groups and domains. The indicators are usually derived from population surveys like the German Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP) by direct estimation. Small sample sizes in the domains can limit the precision of these estimates. For example, while SOEP may be a suitable database for determining mean income in Germany, ...

Web-basierte, non-probability Surveys

Im Rahmen der Kooperation sollen auf Grundlage der unterschiedlichen survey-methodischen Ansätze neuartige surveystatistische Methoden entwickelt, implementiert und sowohl für die Wissenschaft als auch für die interessierte Öffentlichkeit verständlich aufbereitet und dokumentiert werden. Ziel ist es, die wissenschaftlichen Vor- und Nachteile der beim SOEP genutzten &bdquo...
