Title Data Collection in a Probability-Based Internet Panel: How the LISS Panel Was Built and How It Can Be Used
Year 2011
Access date 28.08.2011

In this paper, we introduce a methodology to set up a panel that combines the scientific standards for a longitudinal panel with the advantages of Internet interviewing as a method of data collection. A panel that is intended for scientific research demands a probability sample, covering the whole population of interest and thus including people without Internet access and people who do not actively volunteer to answer questions. We will show how such a panel can be built and maintained, and how researchers can use it for their own, cost free data collection.
