Germany is perfectly suited
as Probability Panel
having close to
full internet penetration.
In 2022, the internet penetration for Germany reached 91% according to Eurostat.
How we built our Germany Panel
Lifepanel makes use of landline and mobile sampling frames for most countries to increase coverage and to better represent the country demographics. A breakdown on the source of respondents can be seen below.
Household size, landline access or mobile access are recorded for each respondent. This allows accurate calculation of the selection probabilities and can be used for post-processing of data.
While the main verification is an actual phone call, we additionally leverage SMS & WhatsApp as pre-notification and reminders to join the panel. Email address is collected during the recruitment process and used as additional channel for survey invitations.
Realtime Demographics - Full Transparency
Lifepanel follows the OECD standard education level for all its countries. That allows comparability between the countries.
Age Band Distribution
Lifepanel recruits from 16 and older and uses four age bands. The age distribution differs. per recruitment mode.
Next to male and female, we also provide the option for other. Gender distribution differs by recruitment mode.
The occupation status makes use of seven different options and is updated every half a year by our respondents.
Multi-Mode recruitment yet probability-based.
We apply a fully probabilistic approach to recruitment from a Dual-Frame RDD Sample – completely phone verified, but apply multi-mode sampling from within our panel via landline, mobile, SMS and WhatsApp, maximizing response rates this way. Another benefit is the fact that different segments of the population prefer different means of communication – multiple modes of contact using the same way thus also increases representation.
Methodological reporting like CATI and F2F interviews
Probability with the ease of Online Samples.
With any data delivery we provided full outline on the response codes and response attempts. We can provide additional info on demographics for the non-response.
Lifepanel uses an adpative incentive system based on past response rate and demographics. With any delivery we provide info on applied incentive.
