    NotesThe data release consists of eight data files. One master data set: includes information on the gross sample, such as time stable variables (sex, year of birth, relation to twins, zygotie) and wave-specific variables (person type, response status) about all individuals included in TwinLife in each wave. One SUF data set in person-wave-format: Each surveyed person has one data row for each survey wave. Two SUF data sets in family-format (one data set for each survey wave): Each family has one data row. Two data sets (one in family and person format, respectively) containing additionally generated scales, e.g. on personality and parenting style. In addition, the data release contains a data file with the information of the twin zygosity assessment and a data file documenting the survey mode for each variable on the individual level. The data are adjusted for filter errors, i.e. data that was collected due to wrong filter conditions has been overwritten. Variables and instruments are documented at http://www.paneldata.org .
