The Research Data Centre (FDZ) of the Federal Employment Agency at the Institute for Employment Research
The Research Data Centre (FDZ) of the German Federal Employment Agency (BA) at the Institute for Employment Research (IAB) is intended mainly to facilitate access to BA and IAB micro data for non-commercial empirical research using standardised and transparent access rules. The FDZ mediates between data producers and external users. We also control for compliance with data protection regulations.
The FDZ is a unit of the Federal Employment Agency (BA). It is directly subordinate to IAB’s Directorate.

The FDZ is closed from 23 December 2013 until 7 January 2014
On-site access and remote execution is not possible during this period. Advisory services will be limited. We apologise for any inconveniences.
Linked-Employer-Employee Data - New LIAB Longitudinal Model is now available!
A new longitudinal model of the Linked-Employer-Employee data is now available. The LIAB LM 9310 data is based on all establishments classified as panel cases from the IAB Establishment Panel data in the period 2000 to 2008. For these establishments, all workers employed at least one day subject to social security contributions in the period of 1999 to 2009 have been identified. Worker’s employment biographies cover the years 1993 to 2010. In total, the LIAB LM 9310 data contains information on 1,883,198 workers and 146,781 linked establishments.

Conference on virtual research environments
Virtual research environments (VRE) help researchers to collaborate. Features usually include collaboration support (Web forums and wikis), meta data or data analysis. VREs have become important in fields where research is primarily carried out in teams which span institutions and even countries. FDZ is trying to incorporate VRE in our services and is active in VRE development projects. The conference 'Das Portal, die Daten und wir. Eine virtuelle Forschungsumgebung für die digitale Infrastruktur' on 24th January 2014 in Berlin is a starting point for interested users to discuss VREs. The conference is free. Language will be German.
