Research in the LISS Panel
Academic researchers from the Netherlands and abroad can field their surveys in the LISS panel or the immigrant panel free of charge. The data obtained by these studies are published on this website (see Assembled Studies) and can also be used by other researchers.
In addition to the studies proposed by external researchers, the LISS Core Study is conducted each year. This longitudinal study provides a wide range of data on the panel members that can be combined with the data of the Assembled Studies. A large part of the LISS Core Study is also conducted in the immigrant panel, but is not repeated each year in this panel.
The demographics and other general background information on the households and respondents are updated each month (see Background Variables).
The metadata and codebooks of all published studies are directly accessible via the Data Archive.
The published data can be accessed free of charge for own scientific, policy or socially relevant (i.e. non-commercial) research. To download the survey data you need to sign a statement confirming that you agree to the conditions.
