Data Package Description

The Social Survey is a series of surveys on the economic and social situation of students in Germany that has been in existence since 1951. Every three to four years, a cross-section of students is surveyed on aspects of access to higher education, structural features of study, social and economic situation, including income and cost of living, employment, housing situation, as well as socio-demographic characteristics, partnership status and parenthood. The data package includes the data from the 11th Social Survey (1985), which was limited to students in the old Länder. An additional questionnaire included questions on study and spare time.
