German Social Cohesion Panel 2021 – Anchor Persons

The Research Institute Social Cohesion (RISC) and the Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP) at the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW Berlin) are conducting a panel study as part of their research cooperation. This involves surveying individuals in their household contexts in Germany on the topic of social cohesion. The "German Social Cohesion Panel 2021 - Anchor Persons" dataset is the first Scientific Use File (SUF) of this longitudinal study and includes initial survey data and generated indicators of 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.

You can order the SUF on this website under "my data" once you have registered.
