SOEP-CoV - "The Spread of the Coronavirus in Germany: Socio-Economic Factors and Consequences" is a joint research project of SOEP at DIW Berlin and Bielefeld University. The project was launched in April 2020 immediately after the outbreak of the virus in Germany and aimed to establish a survey database for research about the short- and long-term societal impacts of the virus in Germany. In this documentation, we provide an overview of the study design and survey methods and offer details about the SOEP-CoV data, which are openly available for scientific research.
