Abstract

Household panel studies provide one of the most significant national and international resources for analysing social and economic change. In this user-friendly introduction, European and American experts in the field join forces to explain what panel studies can achieve and to illustrate some of the potential pitfalls in the construction and analysis of panel data. The authors gear their contributions to the lessons that researchers must learn and apply in their own work, assuming a basic understanding of survey methods, but not of panel studies themselves. This is an essential and accessible introduction for those contemplating the use of panel studies for the first time and will be an invaluable resource for both practising researchers and the commissioners of research.
