The present research proposal aims at financial support for continuation of the Swiss Household Panel (SHP) for the years 2012-2013.The principal aim of the SHP, a longitudinal study launched in 1999, is to observe social change. In particular, it follows the dynamics of changing living conditions and representations in the population of Switzerland. By observing the same individuals over the course of time it allows not only study of change in numbers (net change) but also the flow of movements between the various states of being (gross change). Moreover, the SHP is a comprehensive survey covering a broad range of social fields and a variety of topics, and all members of the households in the panel age 14 years and over are questioned.During the years 1998-2007, The Swiss Household Panel was a joint project run by the Swiss National Science Foundation, the Swiss Federal Statistical Office, and the University of Neuchâtel. Since January 2008, the SHP is part of the Swiss Centre of Expertise in the Social Sciences (FORS), located at the University of Lausanne.An overview of the present and future Swiss social sciences survey landscape shows that the SHP has a special place within it, being the only longitudinal study offering data to analyse micro social change in the mid to long term and on a comprehensive basis. Other longitudinal surveys either offer a smaller range of topics, follow a restricted subgroup, or allow only the study of short term transitions.Since its origin in 1999, the survey has annually covered a broad range of topics and approaches in the social sciences and includes both subjective assessments and concrete information. The household interviews last 15 minutes on average, with the individual ones lasting around 35 minutes.The survey is composed of two stratified samples of private households whose members represent the non-institutional resident population in Switzerland. They were drawn randomly in 1999 (SHP_I) and in 2004 (SHP_II), and are interviewed annually from September to February in the three main official national languages using computer-assisted telephone interviewing (CATI).The new data are made available for users less than one year after collection. Before release several user-friendly variables (e.g. household typologies, standardized income, social stratification scales, etc.) are added to the dataset and numerous quality checks are carried out by our Oracle electronic documentation system. To date, the first twelve SHP_I and seven SHP_II waves have been carried out successfully, and the first eleven waves are available to researchers, including data from the households recruited in 1999 (SHP_I, waves 1 to 11) and from the 2004 sample (SHP_II, waves 1 to 6 for the years 2004 to 2009).The problem of attrition is the principal threat of any longitudinal study; nonresponse decreases the size of samples and can cause bias in survey estimates. Consequent measures have been taken to stabilize attrition rates (and even to increase participation) from 2006 to 2010 (waves 8 to 12 of SHP_I and waves 3 to 7 of SHP_II). Thus, from 2006, the number of interviews conducted for the SHP_I was increased; this phenomenon was also observed in the SHP_II in 2008 and 2010. Consequently, in 2011 and beyond, similar measures will be taken.As of June 2011, the research network “Living in Switzerland” had some 1000 registered members who analyse the SHP data on a very large variety of topics (1735 were mentioned). The main research domains are "Labour Market, Employment, Income", "Poverty, Living Conditions, Quality of Life", "Health, Physical Activity", and "Life Course: Adolescence, Retirement, Aging".Among the SHP data users, sociology (38%) and economics (30%) are by far the most prevalent disciplines, followed by political science (9%), public health (5%), statistics (4%), psychology (4%) and education (2%). But a few scientists from technical sciences, geography, theology and media science are also present, indicating that spatially related topics are also being analysed using the SHP data. The data users belong to the following types of institutions: Swiss academic institutions (70%), international academic institutions (17%), public administrations (8%), and private institutes (5%). A review of the literature (especially journal articles, books, book sections, official reports, and theses or dissertations) based on SHP data was carried out in the summer 2008, and again updated in May 2011. On the whole, this review was based on 343 publications (a selection of all SHP publications) : 117 journal articles , 73 books or book sections (including official publications), 117 reports or working papers, and 36 theses or dissertations. The goal of the review was to identify the modules and sub-modules actually used in published research. In sum, the conducted review confirms that a wide array of variables from the SHP is used in current publications. Since 2004, the Swiss Household Panel has organised an International Conference of Panel Data Users in Switzerland. These conferences have greatly contributed to the interdisciplinary scientific exchange among Swiss and foreign researchers using the SHP data for their analyses and publications. The most recent event, the 6th International Conference of Panel Data Users in Switzerland, took place on June 8 and 9, 2011 at the University of Lausanne. It should be noted that the conference was almost fully dedicated to longitudinal analysis and attended by (mostly) regular data users. Further, a special issue of the Swiss Journal of Sociology on “Persistent social inequalities" will be published in 2012.During the next funding period (2012-2013), we will develop the current SHP (SHP_I and SHP_II) further in two main areas, i.e. (1) weighting schemes, and (2) questionnaires, mainly to fight and correct for attrition, and to improve the analytical potential of the SHP for the scientific community. In addition, we plan to implement a third panel (SHP_III), and manage the NCCR LIVES sample of immigrants from the second-generation population. The first wave of the combined survey (SHP_III and LIVES sample) will begin in September 2013 (parallel to the fieldwork of the SHP_I and the SHP_II), and will be preceded by a pilot study in 2012. In this framework, the SHP will construct a new biographical questionnaire (life calendar) in close collaboration with the NCCR LIVES. This questionnaire will constitute the individual level questioning of the SHP_III wave one (2013, and of the LIVES sample of immigrants from the second-generation population). We will also develop new household and individual questionnaires to be used in the SHP_III (and in the LIVES sample of immigrants) beginning in 2014, that is, from the second wave of the survey.The present proposal for funding (2012-2013) covers the 14th and 15th waves of data collection of the original 1999 SHP_I, the waves 9 and 10 of the 2004 SHP_II, and the first wave of the 2013 SHP_III (including a pilot study in 2012), as well as the salaries of 13 scientific, technical, and administrative collaborators, amounting to 10.4 full-time positions.
