GESIS Panel Longitudinal Core Study

Within each data collection wave, about five minutes of interviewing time are reserved for thematic modules of the GESIS Panel Longitudinal Core Study.

One aim of the GESIS Longitudinal Core Study is to measure frequently demanded characteristics of enduring interest to the social sciences longitudinally. Another aim is to assess indicators and proxy variables of data quality, facilitating estimation of potential survey errors and biases.
