Measurement and Experimentation in the Social Sciences/Longitudinal Internet Studies for the Social Sciences

Description The MESS project facilitates data collection across disciplines in the social and life sciences. Core element is the LISS panel, a representative Internet panel of 8,000 individuals. Data are collected monthly through surveys, experiments, and innovative devices, e.g. smartphones, biomarkers (measuring blood pressure, physical activity, etc.). All collected data are freely available for scientific, policy or socially relevant (i.e. non-commercial) research. The LISS panel is based on a true probability sample of households drawn from the population register by Statistics Netherlands. Households that could not otherwise participate are provided with a computer and Internet connection. A special immigrant panel is available in addition to the LISS panel. Half of the interview time available in the both the LISS and immigrant panel is reserved for the LISS Core Study. This longitudinal study is repeated yearly and is designed to follow changes in the life course and living conditions of the panel members. The other half of available interview time per year can be used to collect one's own data. This is cost-free for researchers at universities and scientific institutes.
