SOEP data analysis

The DIW is home to the oldest and most comprehensive household panel in Germany – the Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP). Every year since 1984, the SOEP has surveyed thousands of households across Germany from an intergenerational life-course perspective on their economic and social circumstances, behavior, subjective well-being, and their attitudes and preferences. The SOEP helps to answer a wide range of important questions about living conditions in Germany. For example: How satisfied are people with their health in Germany? How has the social background of skilled workers changed over the last 20 years? Do differences in living conditions exist between German regions and how have they changed over time?

We offer our customers many years of experience in analyzingSOEP data in cooperation with leading experts at DIW in the planning and implementation of various research projects.
