DFG approves funding for the next two years from May 2016 onwards.

The German Family Panel pairfam (“Panel Analysis of Intimate Relationships and Family Dynamics”), which was largely initiated by sociologists at the University of Bremen, enters the next round: In December 2015, the German Research Foundation (DFG) approved the survey waves 9 and 10 of pairfam. The funding volume for the 24-month period is around five million euros, of which about 20 percent will go to the University of Bremen. The first wave of interviews took place in 2008/2009. The project is scheduled to run for a total of 14 years. The pairfam data are available for scientific analysis and can be obtained from the GESIS Institute. The number of registered users was over 1150 in 2015.


Pairfam is jointly conducted by the Universities of Bremen (Professor Johannes Huinink), Chemnitz (Professor Bernhard Nauck), Jena (Professor Franz Neyer), Cologne (Professor Karsten Hank) and Munich (Professor Josef Brüderl, Professor Sabine Walper).
