SWISS HOUSEHOLD PANEL

The Swiss Household Panel (SHP) is a unique longitudinal survey in the social sciences interviewing all household members of a random sample of private households in Switzerland. The principal aim of this annual panel study is to observe social change, in particular the dynamics of changing living conditions in the population of Switzerland (Tillmann et al. 2016).
