LISS panel access

The LISS panel consists of about 5,000 households, comprising of about 7,500 individuals. It is based on a true probability sample of households drawn from the population register by CBS.

Employees of ODISSEI member organisations receive a discount when using the LISS panel for collecting new data or conducting experiments. Please contact Boukje Cuelenaere, head of department Survey Research at Centerdata, for more information.

Next to this, ODISSEI regularly opens calls to place content on the panel for free. The submissions are assessed by an independent and interdisciplinary committee.
