All data obtained by studies in the LISS panel are published on the LISS data archive website and can thus 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.
The demographics and other general background information on the households and respondents are updated in the LISS data archive each month (see Background Variables). The metadata and codebooks of all published studies are directly accessible via the Data Archive as well.
