Perceived Discrimination

Short Description: The module measures perceived discrimination on different grounds and in various areas of life. The data allow for investigating how discrimination is related to demographic and socioeconomic variables as well as indicators such as health or life satisfaction. Subsequent waves would also enable to test if changes in the respondents’ lives affect self-reports of discrimination.

Methodological Details: Participants were asked whether they had been the target of discrimination in Germany within the past 24 months and if so, what kind of discrimination it was (11 options were given for the kind of discrimination, e.g., “because of my sexual orientation”). Furthermore, they were asked how frequently they experienced discrimination within the past 24 months in certain social settings, for example, “in professional life, e.g., while job hunting” and “in health and care related areas such as hospitals”.
