    Equipments Details


    The Belgian Online Probability Panel (BOPP) is an advanced
    data infrastructure co-owned by all Belgian universities and
    intended to boost and integrate interdisciplinary research in
    behavioral and social sciences. The panel consists of 4,000
    Belgian citizens (16y+), randomly selected from the
    National Register. Respondents regularly receive short
    online surveys. Respondents without internet access can fill
    out a postal questionnaire. BOPP fields a yearly core
    questionnaire to collect basic information (e.g., economic
    situation, household composition, work, social and political
    attitudes, health) on all panelists. For the remaining
    questionnaire, researchers from all fields can apply to field
    their surveys. After anonymization, public use files of the
    integrated data are made available to the whole research
    community. BOPP facilitates the linkage of these survey
    responses to administrative data.
    BOPP offers access to high-quality, representative data,
    collected fast and cost-effectively. The infrastructure
    generates new opportunities for longitudinal analyses,
    interdisciplinary research, experimental research designs
    and linking collected data to administrative and context
