“The Swiss Household Panel: an introduction to the survey and data management with SPSS”. We will present the structure of the SHP and the organization of the SHP data files. In hands-on sessions, we will construct several data files that are helpful for the analysis of SHP data.
Participation in this workshop is free of charge.

About the workshop
The aim of this workshop is to deepen your knowledge on the SHP. This one-day workshop provides a detailed presentation of the SHP data for students, PhD students and researchers. In the SHP, information is collected at the individual level as well as at the household level. This enlarges the possibilities of analyses, but also adds complexity to the use of the data. In this workshop, we will give an introduction to the structure of the SHP and we will construct several data files. We will merge different types of files (e.g. combine individual and household information) or several annual individual files. Furthermore, we will construct long files for longitudinal analyses as well as partner files that offer the possibility to analyze mutual influences of partners. The participants will also have the opportunity to construct data files for their own research projects with SHP data with the support of the workshop leaders. We will use SPSS.
Prior to the introductory session and to deepen the topic, we also offer the following three-day workshop Panel Event Designs and Panel Regression Models, from June 7-9.
