The German Social Cohesion Panel:
The SCP is a newly established longitudinal study that captures multiple aspects of social cohesion in Germany. It is based on a representative population sample drawn from the German population registers and was carried out for the first time in 2021. The annual survey is directed not only at the selected individuals but also at all other adult household members. The SCP is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), led in cooperation by the Research Institute Social Cohesion (RISC) and the German Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP), and implemented by the survey institute infas.

The SCP 2021_1 (Anchor):
The SCP 2021_1 (Anchor) includes initial survey data and generated indicators of 13.055 household anchor persons drawn from population registers and subsequently interviewed. Future datasets will be expanded to include household information and survey data of adult household members.
