Abstract

Longitudinal data are necessary for the analysis of household dynamics. In comparison to retrospective data, data from panel surveys have some advantages in this type of analysis. On the other hand, some specific problems arise with panel data. Both options and problems are illustrated in the German Socio-Economic Panel. To support different types of analysis with panel data, a special data management in a relational database with time tables is helpful. Finally, the ‘fuzziness’ of household definitions is shown with some selected examples.
