DAB Panel Study

Titleimage: DAB Panel Study

Determinants of Educational Choice and Vocational Training Opportunities in Switzerland

Since 2012, the DAB panel study has collected longitudinal data on the vocational and educational situation of young adults in German-speaking Switzerland. The sampled individuals have been observed since their eighth school year and so far have been surveyed eleven times regarding their current training situation as well as their educational and career aspirations. From a life course perspective, the DAB study contributes theory-based empirical evidence for the clarification of relevant questions in the fields of education, labour market and occupational research that previously could not be examined with the available longitudinal data in Switzerland.
