This research proposal aims at securing financial support for continuation and development of the Swiss Household Panel (SHP) for the years 2014-2016.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 social representations in the population of Switzerland. 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 aged 14 years and over are interviewed.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.The SHP has a special place within the present and future Swiss social sciences survey landscape, being the only longitudinal study offering data to analyse micro social change in the mid to long term and on a comprehensive scale. 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 (comprehensive survey) and includes both subjective assessments and concrete information. The household interviews last 15 minutes on average, whereas the individual interviews last about 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 in the period of September to February in the three main official national languages using computer-assisted telephone interviewing (CATI). The Swiss Federal Statistical Office will draw a third sample (SHP_III) in July 2013. The first wave of the SHP_III will begin in September 2013. At the individual level, the questionnaire will be a biographical questionnaire (a life calendar).The new data now become available to users around eight months 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. Since 2009, users can obtain the following additional data on request: (1) imputed income data and original income data and (2) paradata (call data). Also since 2010, a new User Guide, updated annually, is available to SHP data users. To date, fourteen SHP_I and nine SHP_II waves have been carried out successfully, and the first thirteen waves are available to researchers, including data from the households recruited in 1999 (SHP_I, waves 1 to 13) and from the 2004 sample (SHP_II, waves 1 to 8 for the years 2004 to 2011).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. Measures have been taken to stabilize attrition rates (and even to increase participation) from 2006 to 2012 (waves 8 to 14 of SHP_I and waves 3 to 9 of SHP_II). Thus, since 2006, the number of interviewed households, and individuals, has increased in general. In 2013 and beyond, similar measures will be taken.By the end of May 2013, the research network “Living in Switzerland” had some 1400 registered members who analyse the SHP data on a very large variety of topics. The main research domains are "Labour Market, Employment, Income", "Poverty, Living Conditions, Quality of Life", "Health, Physical Activity", and "Life Course: Adolescence, Retirement, Aging". Moreover, more and more common is the data use in seminars and courses.Among the SHP data users, sociology (33%) and economics (30%) are by far the most prevalent disciplines, followed by political science (8%), public health (4%), psychology (4%), statistics (3%), and education (2%). A few scientists from the 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 institutions: Swiss academic institutions (72%), international academic institutions (17%), public administrations (6%), and private institutes (5%). The data use by foreigners is continuously increasing: nowadays almost 20% of the researchers come from abroad. A review of the literature based on SHP data was carried out in the summer 2008, and updated in May 2012. On the whole, the review was based on 393 publications (a selection of all SHP publications): 140 journal articles, 80 books or book sections, 130 reports or working papers, and 43 bachelor, master, PhD theses or habilitations. The aim of this work was to know which modules or sub-modules were used the most by the researchers, which was informative in the framework of the revision of the questionnaires. 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 regularly organises the 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 7th International Conference of Panel Data Users in Switzerland, took place in 2013 on February 14 and 15, at the University of Lausanne. During the Conference a CNEF (Cross-National Equivalent File) meeting also took place.During the next funding period (2014-2016), besides the management of the SHP_I, SHP_II, and SHP_III, we will further develop the SHP in two main areas, i.e. (1) weighting schemes, and (2) questionnaires, mainly to minimize and correct for attrition, and to improve the analytical potential of the SHP for the scientific community. During the same period, we will also further develop our collaboration with the NCCR LIVES in particular.The present proposal for funding (2014-2016) covers the 16th, 17th and 18th waves of data collection of the original 1999 SHP_I, the waves 11 to 13 of the 2004 SHP_II, and the waves 2 to 4 of the 2013 SHP_III, as well as the salaries of 9 scientific collaborators, amounting to 6.75 full-time positions.
