Title GESIS Panel: Sample and Recruitment
Year 2014
Access date 09.04.2014

Throughout the recruitment process, the GESIS Panel follows state of the art recommendations of building a probability based online access panel. The reference population for the GESIS Panel is the German speaking population aged between 18 and 70 years and permanently residing in Germany. The approximately 4800 panelists are recruited from a random sample drawn from municipal population registers. All people in the sample were interviewed in personal house visits with a computeraided personal interview (CAPI) and asked to participate in the panel. Mail questionnaires are sent to those participants who are not able or do not want to participate in online surveys. Every interviewed person is being incentivized for the recruitment interview as well as all following waves.
