The Administrative Wage and Labor Market Flow Panel Data at the FDZ

Summary

The Administrative Wage and Labor Market Flow Panel (AWFP) is a dataset on labour market flows and stocks for the universe of German establishments. It contains data on job flows (changes in the number of employees per establishment), worker flows (information about the hiring and firing activity), and wages for each establishment. In addition, the AWFP contains this information for partitions of the labour force according to various employee characteristics (such as sex, education, age, and tenure) and for some sub-groups of employees (e.g., newly hired workers).

The AWFP was generated within the framework of the “Custom Shaped Administrative Data for the Analysis of Labour Market” (CADAL) project and the “Wages, Heterogeneities, and Labor Market Dynamics” project. Both projects are part of the priority program “The German Labor Market in a Globalized World” (SPP 1764), which is sponsored by the German Science Foundation (DFG).

Data Versions

The FDZ provides the following AWFP products:

  • The FDZ Sample of the Administrative Wage and Labor Market Flow Panel (FDZ-AWFP): The FDZ-AWFP contains selected AWFP variables for a 50 % random sample of establishments for the years 1976–2014. The FDZ-AWFP data are available on an annual and on a quarterly basis.
  • Public Release Data of the Administrative Wage and Labor Market Flow Panel (AWFP): The AWFP's public release data include, for example, information on job and labour flows for groups of establishments. They can be used, for example, to analyse cyclical dynamics (of fractions) of the labour market in terms of turnover and churn.
