The willingness to take risks describes the inclination of a person to take risks or to avoid them. The short scale Risikobereitschaft-1 (R-1) (readiness to take risks) was developed to enable an economic measurement of the psychological characteristic readiness to take risks in social science surveys or studies, which allows a reliable and valid measurement of the construct despite the brevity of the scale. The answer format consists of a 7-step rating scale with the end poles "not at all willing to take risks" to "very willing to take risks".

Survey Period: Feb 18, 2019 - May 1, 2019 Survey Data Type: Quantitative Data
Nacaps, the National Academics Panel Study, is a new longitudinal study of doctoral candidates and doctorate holders in Germany funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). The project aims at providing nationwide cross-sectional and lo... morengitudinal data on doctoral students and doctorate holders in Germany regarding their study conditions as well as their career trajectories within and outside of academia. The Nacaps study series apply a panel design to multiple cohorts. In 2019, all doctoral students registered at 53 doctorate-granting higher education institutions as off 01.12.2018 were invited to a first survey. Further panel waves follow at yearly intervals. Topics of the survey are e.g. the kind and structure of doctoral studies, motives for conducting doctoral studies, the mentoring situation, working and employment conditions, plans for career paths after the doctorate, international mobility, as well as individual characteristics of respondents. By covering these topics and by considering important indicators on young scholars, the Nacaps data provide important knowledge for national reporting (e.g. the federal report on young academics called “Bundesbericht wissenschaftlicher Nachwuchs”), for local steering, as well as for numerous further stakeholders. Moreover, the data offer an opportunity to investigate scientific research questions in the field of academic careers. less
Survey Period: Dec 1, 2017 - Oct 31, 2018 Survey Data Type: Quantitative Data
The DZHW-Panel Study of School Leavers 2018 is part of the DZHW-Panel Study of School Leavers survey series, in which standardized multiple surveys are used to collect information on the post-school careers of school leavers with a (school) higher educatio... moren entrance qualification. As a rule, several survey waves are conducted at different times before and after the acquisition of the higher education entrance qualification. Accordingly, this is a combined cohort-panel design. The panel 2018 is the 21st cohort of the survey series of which the data of the first survey wave will be published first. One of the main focal points is the topic of diversity, with a particular focus on migration background. Another special feature of the panel 2018 is that, for the first time within the survey series, school principals were also surveyed in addition as part of the first survey wave. less
