On March 2-3, 2020, Anna Kiersztyn, Katarzyna Kopycka and Viktoriia Sovpenchuk took part in a meeting with Advisory Board member Markus Grabka from the German Socio-Economic Panel SOEP team. The meeting took place in Berlin, at the German Institute for Economic Research (Deutsches Institut für Wirtschaftsforschung, DIW). The aim of the meeting was to consult some of the methodological issues related to the harmonization of SOEP data on young adults with panel data from other surveys, and to the reconstruction of individual occupational and educational trajectories using SOEP data. During the meeting, Markus Grabka presented the documentation and structure of SOEP datasets, and offered many valuable suggestions on the selection of samples and potential source variables for harmonization.
