German Research Foundation to fund globally unique twin study on social inequality
Date:12/7/2012

for older twins, also their partners will be surveyed.' Short tests will be carried out and questionnaires will be completed in home visits and telephone surveys. The study covers a broad age range extending from 5-year-old children to 31-year-old adults.

The resulting dataset will be made available to the international community of researchers as a 'common good'. 'This dataset will contain high-quality information in a form that has not been available in any other study up to now. The longitudinal and behavioural-genetic analyses will be supplemented by our own focus of analyses on a theory-guided examination of the interaction between genetic and environmental factors over time,' is how Diewald summarizes their plans.
