• German Emigration and Remigration Panel Study (GERPS): Second wave for scientific use published
The German Emigration and Remigration Panel Study (GERPS) just published its second wave for scientific use via the GESIS data archive. GERPS is a probability-based online panel with 20 to 70 year-old Germans who either recently left Germany or returned from abroad. It comprises five waves over a period of 36 months. Wave 1 includes approximately 11,000 participants, wave 2 roughly 7,000.
The study enables researchers to investigate reasons and consequences of international migration. Given the survey length and period, GERPS further allows studying the role of the COVID-19 pandemic for international migration and integration.
