Pooled data set of the twelve student surveys.

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. At three- to four-year intervals, a cross-section of students is surveyed on aspects of university access, structural features of study, social and economic situation, including income and cost of living, employment, housing situation, and socio-demographic characteristics such as ethnic and social origin, partnership status and parenthood. The data package includes data from the core set of the 10th to 21st Social Survey (1982-2016). The twelve individual scientific use files available at the FDZ-DZHW were pooled in an complex data preparation process to form an integrated dataset, which now enables elaborate time series analysis procedures on the aspects covered.
