The study currently consists of two waves of a panel survey of adolescents designed to study the complex causal mechanism of structural, social, and cultural integration of populations with experience. The data include surveys of students, parents, and teachers. It enables studying processes of intergenerational transmission and integration.
The survey covers topics of (1) cognitive-cultural integration (including language proficiency tests), (2) structural integration, (3) social integration, and (4) emotional-cultural integration. In addition there are detailed informations about migration experience and demographics.
Cognitive-cultural Integration: Language (objective measures of proficiency in the host country’s language, self-assessed knowledge of L1, self-assessed knowledge of L2, language use, language spoken at home); measurement of cognitive skills; leisure time activities (memberships, leisure time activities); number of books at home.
Structural Integration: School performance (self-assessment, grades, setting system, school type, repeating classes, private lessons); attitudes towards school (favourite subjects, educational aspirations, self-efficacy, anti-school norms, efforts in school, value of education, status maintenance motive, teacher support, satisfaction with school, success probabilities, perceived association between educational and occupational success, expected discrimination, financial restrictions, educational costs); economic situation (side job, pocket money, possessions, expected development of own economic situation); deviant behaviour and delinquency (school-related problem behaviour, delinquent behaviour).
Social Integration: Sociometric information within classrooms; strong ties (ethnic background of friends); contact person in case of problems; person one is having trouble with; weak ties (in school, neighbourhood, clubs/associations); discrimination (victimisation in school, perceived discrimination); attitudes towards other ethnic groups; romantic relationships (characteristics of partner and relationship, expectations about the future of the relationship), family relations (parental support, parent-child contact, family cohesion, parental expectations, family conflict, embeddedness/influence of parents).
Emotional-cultural Integration: Identity (with respect to host, respectively sending country, importance of ethnic identity); attitudes towards integration; religion (religious affiliation, importance of religion, religious practices); attitudes and norms (gender roles, violence legitimizing norms of masculinity, tolerance).
Health and well-being: Personality and psychological well-being (life satisfaction, self-esteem, behavioural problems, self-control); health (general health status, health problems, sleeping behaviour, weight, height, health related behaviour, future expectations about health).
Demography and migration history: Gender; age; living situation and household composition (household members, household situation, neighbourhood); social background (parents´ education, parents´ employment status, parents´ occupation), migration history (child´s, parents´, and grandparents´ country of birth, age of migration, home-country visits, return migration).
