The Research Data Centre (FDZ) of the Federal Employment Agency at the Institute for Employment Research

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.

New register data on counselling and monitoring the unemployed: Call for test use and corresponding FDZ Methodenreport 09/2013
The FDZ offers new data comprising information on case-workers' assistance in job search. The data contain daily information on the timing of three policy tools that aim at the reintegration of the unemployed: invitations to individual meetings with the caseworker, vacancy referrals, and integration contracts. The data can be used to study these policy tools directly, or as
time-varying control variables when studying other aspects of active labour market policy, like training programs.
Interested researcher can apply for an on-site test-use in Nuremberg
