Overview of Available Data
The Research Data Centre (FDZ) provides data on individuals, households and establishments, as well as data that comprise both establishment and personal information. The FDZ data originate from three different sources. From the notification process of the social security system and the internal procedures of the Federal Employment Agency process-generated data are obtained. Furthermore, the IAB acquires data by conducting own surveys.
The following scheme depicts the different data sources and how they enter our datasets.
Process Generated Data
Social security notifications are filed in the IAB and edited in the form of a history dataset known as the Employment History. The Establishment History Panel (BHP) is generated by aggregation of the Employment History to the establishment level.
The IAB also prepares the process-generated data stemming from the internal procedures of the Federal Employment Agency. These are linkable with the Employment History to form what is termed the Integrated Employment Biographies. The Integrated Employment Biographies are a central component of several FDZ datasets:
The FDZ currently offers following survey datasets. Generally these are obtained from surveys conducted by the IAB, but also partly in the context of third party funded FDZ projects:
By combining process-generated data with survey data, linked datasets are generated. Thus, establishment data, personal or household data from different sources are combined. Currently, the following liked datasets are available at the FDZ:
The FDZ additionally offers older datasets, which partly have been replaced by new ones:
Following datasets are only available for replication studies and not for new projects:
