The GESIS Panel offers the social science community a unique opportunity to collect survey data within a probability-based mixed-mode access panel free of charge. The data are representative of the German speaking population aged between 18 and 70 years (at the time of recruitment) and permanently residing in Germany. By the end of the recruiting phase in February 2014 the GESIS Panel encompasses about 4900 panelists.
Academics from various social science fields, such as sociology, psychology, political science, economic science, and criminology at universities or non-commercial research institutes are invited to submit their proposals along with their proposed questionnaires throughout the year.
Data collected within the GESIS Panel can be used by academic researchers free of charge, e.g. to conduct secondary research.
