Establishment History Panel (BHP)
The Establishment History Panel (BHP) is composed of cross sectional datasets since 1975 for West-Germany and 1992 for East Germany. Every cross section contains all establishments in Germany, which are covered by the Employee and Benefit Recipient History (BLH) on June 30th. These are all establishments with at least one employee liable to social security on the reference date. Since 1999 also establishments with no employees liable to social security but with at least one marginal part-time employee are included. The cross sections can be combined to form a panel.
The BHP contains information about the branch of industry and the location of the establishment. Furthermore there is the number of employees liable to social security as well as, since 1999, marginal part-time employees, both in total and broken down by gender, age, occupational status, qualification and nationality. Quartiles of ages and wages are also given, both for full-time employees only as well as for all employees.
Please find more detailed information about the dataset in the outline and the detailed Data Reports under working tools.
External researchers are allowed to work either with 50% random sample or a with a 50% random sample stratified by the sizes of the establishments. Data access is possible via on-site use or via remote data access also. You get more information about that in the category data access.
