GESIS Panel Campus File

The GESIS Panel Campus File is intended for teaching purposes only. It provides interested parties, such as students or lecturers, the opportunity to work with an easily accessible, high quality, panel data set that should satisfy many requirements put forth by the interested parties teaching curriculum. In exchange for easy accessibility the GESIS Panel Campus File only contains selected portions of the original GESIS Panel scientific use file. In order to ensure the anonymity of our panelists the GESIS Panel Campus File only contains a random 25% sample of all panel members who were still active at the start of the respective year. For the current Campus File the final sample size is N=1222, compared to the original sample size of N=7599 in the scientific use file (GESIS Panel Standard Edition: ZA5665) this Campus File is based on. An exact documentation of studies and variables included in this years GESIS Panel Campus File can be found in the data description and codebook.

Access to the GESIS Panel Campus File (ZA5666 / doi:10.4232/1.12749) can be acquired at the Data Catalogue (DBK).

Researchers interested in using GESIS Panel data for scientific publication purposes should use the full data set, either the GESIS Panel Standard Edition or the GESIS Panel Extended Edition. The data users are strongly advised not to use the GESIS Panel Campus File for scientific publications other than for teaching purposes.
