Documentation

 

Please consider our official Citation Guidelines for CILS4EU CUF Data and Documentation before publishing.

IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER: We strongly advise that any work (e.g., theses, term papers) that is based on the CILS4EU campus use file (CUF) data should not be published in its original form. As explained in the README, the CUF data is a non-random subsample of the German part of the CILS4EU data. As such, substantive findings from analyses of these data might be biased and not generalizable. If you wish to publish work based on the CUF data, please apply for the full or reduced version scientific use file (SUF) and repeat the analyses with these data. The SUF contains more than 18,000 observations across four countries and weights to adjust for uneven sampling probabilities. It also offers additional variables that are useful or necessary for certain analyses. The SUF is available to students who are in the final stages of their Master’s program and above. Information how to apply for the SUF data can be found here.
