Series PASS

In 2017, ten waves of the Panel Study “Labour Market and Social Security” (PASS) will be available to researchers interested in labour market, social policy and poverty research all over the world. In order to celebrate this anniversary, we are inviting submissions for papers to be presented at the 2nd User Conference. The conference aims at bringing together researchers from sociology, economics and survey methodology and at fostering exchange between data users. Papers should be based on data from the PASS panel survey. They may address research questions in any of the areas that PASS is designed to investigate (e.g. labour market research, poverty research, social policy research) as well as methodological questions.
