|Description:||SOEPcampus@UniversitĚ_t Bamberg 2013 - International SOEP User Workshop|
|Location:||Bamberg, University of Bamberg, Germany|
|Subject:||The workshop offers an introduction to the Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP). The SOEP is a survey of the population of Germany that has been conducted annually since 1984 and addresses topics such as household composition, employment and family biography, income trajectories, health, education, life satisfaction, and personality. Working with a complex longitudinal dataset like the SOEP offers numerous possibilities but also requires specialized skills. The workshop offers participants the opportunity to gain a well-grounded general understanding of how to work with the SOEP data. In addition to providing an overview of the structure and possibilities for analysis offered by the SOEP, the workshop will focus on questions about the sample and weighting, international comparisons data and intergenerational analyses on the basis of the SOEP data.|
