The paper gives a brief overview of the British Household Panel Study and some key aspects of its design. A short discussion of some of the analytic advantages of panel data is complemented by three examples of research issues where panel data can assist in the understanding of micro-social change: (1) changing populations: (2) non-sampling errors (and especially non-response and panel conditioning); and (3) sample design.; working paper
