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.
