Part of the interview time available in the LISS panel is reserved for the LISS Core Study. This longitudinal study is repeated yearly and is designed to follow changes in the life course and living conditions of the panel members. In addition to the LISS Core Study there is ample room to collect data for different research purposes. Many disciplines, from linguistics to medical sciences, have taken up the opportunity to use the research infrastructure.
The LISS panel has been in full operation since October 2007, and all data are made available through the LISS data archive.
