URL, JabRef BibTex, Abstract
There has been great progress in providing the social science community with cross-national comparative longitudinal data that allow considerable advances in research on couple and family dynamics. Panel data in which individuals are followed over time permit researchers to model individual decision processes and the determinants of behavioural intentions and to compare such processes across various country contexts. Examples of studies combining different data sources are still rare.In this paper, we present two panel surveys — the Generations and Gender Surveys and the German Family Panel — and show how to combine data from them in order to encourage international scholars of the social sciences to combine data from these surveys to conduct comparative research on couple and family dynamics
