The sample consists of a random selection of 12,000 households in the Socio-Economic Panel Study (SOEP). The sample was divided and surveyed in nine successive tranches. The largest tranches were surveyed first starting April 1, 2020. By the end of May, all of the smaller remaining tranches had been surveyed.
