Diese Studie ist die Fortsetzung des Schweizerischen Kinder- und Jugendsurvey COCON und führt die 6. und 7. Befragungswelle der Kinderkohorte (6-Jährige in 2006) in 2015 und 2016 durch. COCON wird dann die einzige Studie in der Schweiz sein, die Vorschulkinder im Alter von 6 Jahren bis hin zum Übergang in eine Lehre oder weiterführende allgemeinbildende Schule im Alter von 16 Jahren beobachtet haben wird.
Lay summary

Diese Studie ist die Fortsetzung des Schweizerischen Kinder- und Jugendsurvey COCON und führt die 6. und 7. Befragungswelle der Kinderkohorte (6-Jährige in 2006) in 2015 und 2016 durch. COCON ist das einzige, interdisziplinär angelegte, repräsentative Längsschnittstudie in der Schweiz, die soziale Ungleichheit, Übergänge im frühen Lebenslauf und die psychosoziale Entwicklung von Kindern und Jugendlichen aus einer Lebenslaufperspektive erforscht. Seit 2006 (1. Befragungswelle) werden drei protypische Phasen des Aufwachsens untersucht: Mittlere Kindheit (Kohorte der 6-Jährigen); mittlere Adoleszenz (Kohorte der 15-Jährigen) und frühes Erwachsenenalter (Kohorte der 21-Jährigen).

Die 6. Befragungswelle der Kinderkohorte wird erfolgen, wenn sich ihre Mitglieder im letzten obligatorischen Schuljahr befinden. Die 7. Befragungswelle wird dann stattfinden, wenn sie den Übergang in die Sekundarstufe II vollzogen haben werden. COCON wird dann die einzige Studie in der Schweiz sein, die Vorschulkinder im Alter von 6 Jahren bis hin zum Übergang in eine Lehre oder weiterführende allgemeinbildende Schule im Alter von 16 Jahren beobachtet haben wird. Zudem wird es möglich sein, den Übertritt in die Sekundarstufe II dieser Kohorte mit demjenigen der Kohorte der Adoleszenten eine Dekade früher zu vergleichen. Damit wird COCON die einzige Studie in der Schweiz sein, die den sozialen Wandel in Bildungslaufbahnen erforschen kann. Neue Forschungsfragen zum Wandel von sozialer Ungleichheit und Bildungschancen können somit angegangen werden.

Abstract

This is the continuation of the grant application submitted in October 2010 (10FI13_134674; see SciencePart_Buchmann_2010 attached), requesting partial support from the SNSF Infrastructure Funds for a 3-year period (1.1.2014 - 31.12.2016) to conduct the 6th and 7th survey waves of the COCON child cohort (cohort 1; 6-year olds in 2006) in early 2015 and 2016. Partial support is also requested for preparing scientific use files of the successfully conducted 4th and 5th and planned 6th and 7th survey waves to be archived at FORS by the end of the requested funding period (31.12.2016).The 6th and 7th survey waves of the child cohort are crucial for the scientific and the practical value of this longitudinal study. There is no other study in Switzerland that will have observed a representative sample of pre-school children from age 6 to upper-secondary education at age 16, focusing on early life course development and developmental trajectories of social-cognitive, social-emotional, and behavioral competences. This cohort’s transition to upper secondary education may then be compared with the equivalent transition of COCON’s adolescent cohort a decade earlier (cohort 2; 15-year olds in 2006). No other study in Switzerland is able to trace social change in schooling trajectories. Novel research questions related to shifts in social inequality of educational opportunity may thus be addressed. The completion of the 6th and 7th survey waves constitutes the first possible moment in COCON’s data collection when it could be halted without a tremendous loss in the study’s scientific value.The recurrent request for partial support of the COCON study has resulted from circumstances that could not have been readily foreseen at the time of the last grant application in October 2010. First, the costs for the 6th and 7th survey waves (as shown in the quotes by LINK) turned out to be higher than roughly estimated three years ago. Second, the financial reserves accrued over the past three years at the Jacobs Center (JC) are smaller than expected. We hired additional scientific personnel with the aim of further demonstrating the great potential of the COCON data by increasing the already remarkable scholarly output. Finally, the ambitious aim of preparing survey waves 4 through 7 as scientific use files delivered to FORS by 31.12.2016 requires additional personnel. Despite these circumstances, the funds requested from the SNSF for the 3-year period are substantially lower than they were for the previous period (CHF 624,300 compared to CHF 498,166).No SNSF funds are requested for data analyses. Continued strong scholarly publications are essential, however, to demonstrate the analytic potential of the data. The research questions to be addressed are intimately linked to the 6th and 7th survey waves of the child cohort, focusing on inequality in educational opportunities across educational trajectories; antecedents and consequences of developmental trajectories of social-cognitive, social-emotional, and behavioral competences; social change and the transition to upper-secondary education. These costs will be covered by the JC.The applicant will enter emerita status on 1.8.2015, but will continue to work for COCON until 31.12.2016 (seeking employment at UZH under private law). The UZH and the Jacobs Foundation (JF) have expressed their firm conviction that COCON will be integrated in the future JC (see attached Statement_UZH_JF). Under condition that the SNSF will accept this grant application, JF and UZH will support COCON for the period 1.8.2015 - 31.12.2016 with CHF 400,000 and grant the applicant CHF 100,000 to compensate her work as emerita. For this period, the JC will have accrued financial reserves of CHF 175,000. For the period 1.1.2014 - 31.7.2015 the applicant will have access to her regular resources.
