GESIS Panel Campus File

The GESIS Panel Campus File is intended for teaching purposes only. It provides interested parties (e.g., students or lecturers) with an opportunity to work with an easily accessible, high quality panel dataset that should satisfy many requirements set forth in the interested parties' curriculum. In exchange for easy accessibility, the GESIS Panel Campus File contains only selected portions of the original GESIS Panel scientific use file. In order to ensure the anonymity of our panelists, the GESIS Panel Campus File contains only 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. An exact documentation of studies and variables included in this year's 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 GESIS Data Archive.

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