Title The German Internet Panel: First Results from the Recruitment Phases
Year 2012
Access date 01.12.2012

The German Internet Panel (GIP) is a new large-scale online panel based on a probability sample of individuals living within households in Germany. Panel households were initially approached offline, with a short face-to-face interview. Subsequently, all household members were invited to complete the bi-monthly GIP questionnaires. To minimize non-coverage bias, households without access to the internet are provided with the necessary hardware and/or a broadband internet connection. The substantive focus of the GIP in the first two years will be on measuring individual preferences for political reforms and how these preferences change over time. While the panel is set up as a long-term study, it is has just completed the recruitment phases and the first online waves. To collect evidence for successful recruitment strategies for future refresher samples, we have implemented two incentives experiments. Our presentation will show very first results of the various stages into recruitment, where household and individual nonresponse may occur.
