Call for Proposals: Adding Survey Items to the CFPS2022

China Family Panel Studies (CFPS) is a nationally representative, longitudinal survey of Chinese communities, families, and individuals launched in 2010 by the Institute of Social Science Survey (ISSS) of Peking University, China. The CFPS is designed to collect individual-, family-, and community-level longitudinal data in contemporary China. The studies focus on the economic, as well as the non-economic, wellbeing of the Chinese population, with a wealth of information covering such topics as economic activities, education outcomes, family dynamics and relationships, migration, and health. The CFPS is funded by the Chinese government through Peking University. The CFPS promises to provide the academic community with the most comprehensive and highest quality survey data on contemporary China. Three key features of the CFPS are worth noting here:
1. All the members in a sampled household are recruited, with those over age 9 being interviewed personally and younger individuals being interviewed through proxy-reports by adult members. These individuals constitute core members of the CFPS.
2. Children of CFPS respondents born or adopted since the baseline survey are also considered core members of the CFPS. Theoretically, a core member can leave the study only through death.
3. Follow-up surveys of the CFPS are designed to take place on a biennial basis. Five provinces or their administrative equivalents are chosen for initial oversampling (1600 families in each) so that representative regional comparisons can be made. The remainder of the CFPS sample (8000 families) is drawn from the other 20 provinces so as to make the overall CFPS sample representative of the country through weighting.
The 2010 baseline sample was drawn through a multi-stage probability proportional to size sampling (PPS) procedure with implicit stratification to reduce the operational costs of the survey while remaining representative of the Chinese population. Each CFPS subsample was drawn through three stages: administrative districts (in urban areas) or counties (in rural areas) as the primary sampling units, neighborhood communities (in urban areas) or administrative villages as the second-stage sampling units, and households as the third-stage sampling units.
Supported by the Survey Research Center (SRC) at the University of Michigan, the CFPS employs computer-assisted personal interviewing (CAPI) technology to conduct face-to-face interviews, as well as computer-assisted telephone interviewing (CATI) technology in situations where personal interviews are not feasible. These modern interviewing technologies and the associated survey-management system enable researchers to design a fairly complex interview schedule tailored to each member of the household and reduce measurement error while allowing the management team at the ISSS to closely monitor the quality of the interviews in the field.
The 2010 baseline survey successfully interviewed almost 15,000 families, more than 30,000 adults (16 years or above), and nearly 9,000 children (15 years or younger), with a response rate of 81.3% at the household level and 84.1% at the individual level. Six follow-up surveys have been completed so far: a subsample (18 years or less) follow-up in 2011, and five full-scale follow-ups in 2012, 2014, 2016, 2018, and 2020.
To enrich the range of research topics, the CFPS is now soliciting new survey items from the public to be added to the 2022 follow-up survey. See Appendix 1 for application guidelines and procedures. Applicants need to fill out an Application Form for Adding CFPS Survey Items (Appendix 2) and send the forms to isss.cfps AT pku.edu.cn by Sept. 12th, 2021. Applications submitted after this date will not be considered. To inquire further, please contact at Email:isss.cfps AT pku.edu.cn
