Data

In the past years, I have coordinated several data collections with colleagues in the Netherlands and abroad. The main has been to provide the scientific community with new and better empirical data on integration, in particular with data on the integration of ethnic minority groups in Europe. Different types of data have been collected, such as large-scale panel surveys, experiments in the lab and in the field, and online data. Below I briefly describe the data projects, and include links to websites with more information and to the data archives where researchers can access the data.

CILS4EU

The Children of Immigrants Longitudinal Survey in Four European Countries (CILS4EU) project received funding from the European Union’s Sixth Framework Programme (NORFACE). The survey started in 2010, when around 14,000 adolescents (aged 14-15) and one of their parents were interviewed in Germany, the Netherlands and England. The survey collected data on each of the three dimensions of integration, i.e., social integration (e.g., sociometric measures of classroom ties, best friends, prejudice), cultural integration (e.g., language skills, norms, values), and economic integration (e.g., education, employment). This first wave of data collection was followed by two more waves, with an interval of one year each time. More information about this unique, cross-nationally comparative panel study can be found on the CILS4EU website.

All three waves of the CILS4EU panel study can be accessed via GESIS, the Germany national data archive for the social sciences:

CILSNL

The NORFACE funding we received for the CILS4EU project allowed us to collect data for three waves, i.e., in 2010, 2011 and 2012. At the end of that panel, the adolescents were around 16-17 years old, and hence key developments and transitions with respect to education, the labor market and social relations were about to take place. Therefore, the CILS4EU team thought it would be extremely important to continue the panel and hence to apply for funding. Because of the time-consuming nature of collecting the first three waves in three years, and the lack of cross-national funding opportunities at that time, the CILS4EU team concluded that continuing the data collection in the same way (strictly harmonized across the four countries) was no longer feasible. Instead, the teams of the four countries (England, Sweden, Germany, Netherlands) separately applied for additional funding. With my colleague Eva Jaspers, I received several grants from the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) to continue the CILS4EU panel with four additional waves in the Netherlands. CILSNL is thus the Dutch part of the three-wave panel from CILSEU and includes wave 4 (age 17-18), wave 5 (age 18-19), wave 6 (age 19-20) and wave 7 (age 20-21). The reduced versions of the data are stored at the Dutch data archive for social science research (DANS), and the full versions can be accessed via Central Bureau of Statistics Netherlands (CBS).

I have also collected online data, such as from social media platforms like Facebook, YouTube, Twitter.

Also funded by NORFACE, the SCIP project collected data among recently arrived immigrants in Germany, the Netherlands, Ireland and the UK. More information about this project and data documentation can be found here.
