Generations and Gender Programme (Netherlands)

The Generations and Gender Programme (GGP) is a unique Social Science Research Infrastructure which aims at understanding changes in modern family life. Through targeted, high quality open access micro- and macro-level data, GGP provides empirical evidence to better address societal challenges and to improve the knowledge base for social science and policy making in Europe and developed countries elsewhere.

The GGP was launched in 2001 and has datasets from 22 European and 6 non-European countries. With samples of 10,000 respondents per country, the GGP is the only research infrastructure dedicated to the longitudinal and cross-national study of family life and generational relationships from early adulthood to older ages. The survey data is complemented with indicators at the regional and national level through a contextual database, offering insights into the role that policy and other contextual factors play in family life.
