We are happy to announce that the register-based follow-ups of demographic outcomes to the respondents of the first wave of the Swedish Generations and Gender Survey (GGS) are delivered and duly processed.

The attrition rate was zero percent.

The follow-ups also contain links to register data with retrospective histories of survey participants’ previous labor-market and educational trajectories, among other things.

These new data amount to a wave 2 of the Swedish Generations and Gender Survey that is entirely generated through the processing of register-based data via the data collectors at Statistics Sweden.

Together with the newly released Contextual Data Base of the Swedish Generations and Gender Program we now offer a very powerful infrastructure for up-to-date family-demographic research.

An internationally accessible version of the wave 2 of the Swedish GGS becomes available at the web site of the international GGP organization at NIDI in the Netherlands.

Another version is available to researchers at the Stockholm University Demography Unit (SUDA) via Statistics Sweden’s Micro Online Access system.

Codebooks of the Swedish GGS waves 1 and 2 are available at the SUDA home page:
