The IAB Job Vacancy Survey


The IAB Job Vacancy Survey (IAB-SE) is an establishment survey covering the entire unfilled labour demand in Germany. It identifies the entire number of vacancies on the German labour market, including those vacancies that are not reported to the Federal Employment Agency (FEA), Germany’s public employment service. Furthermore, it offers information on lapsed vacancies and on employers’ perceptions of recent labour market policy developments.

For detailed information as well as a current list of publications please refer to the IAB Job Vacancy Survey’s web site.
