Survey Period: Dec 1, 2011 - Oct 31, 2013 Survey Data Type: Quantitative Data
The DZHW-Panel Study of School Leavers 2012 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 for each year group of persons with a university entrance qualification. Accordingly, this is a combined cohort-panel design. The panel 2012 is the 19th cohort of the study series with currently two waves.
The special topics chosen for the 2012 DZHW-Panel Study of School Leavers were information behaviour in choosing a post-school career, the social environment and cultural experience. less
Survey Period: Dec 1, 2007 - Dec 1, 2013 Survey Data Type: Quantitative Data
The DZHW Panel Study of School Leavers 2008 is part of the School Leavers panel series of the DZHW, which records information on post-school educational and career paths of school leavers with a higher education entrance qualification. For every graduate y... moreear (cohort) a series of survey waves are carried out with each wave occurring at a different time before and after graduation, implemented as a combined cohort-panel-design. The Panel Study of School Leavers 2008 comprises the 17th cohort of the survey series with three survey waves. In contrast to preceding cohorts, the study phase of the 2008 cohort is defined by the implementation of the two-cycle degree programme (bachelor’s and master’s degree). This change has been taken into account through a detailed recording of educational choices relevant for the course of study. The time shift in the survey implementation compared to previous cohorts made it possible to interview a higher proportion of students pursuing a master’s degree. The consequences of the decision of the Federal Supreme Court in 2005, which facilitated charging general tuition fees from the beginning of the first degree in seven federal states, could also be registered during the first survey wave of the 2008 cohort. less
