BA Employment Panel: Outline

Scientific Use File:

A brief overview of the data set can be found under Scientific Use File.

A detailed description of the scientific use file is available in FDZ-Datenreport No. 01/2009 (only available in German).

Weakly anonymous version

A brief overview of the data set can be found under Weakly Anonymous Version.

A detailed description of the weakly anonymous version is available in FDZ-Datenreport No. 01/2009 (only available in German).

Differences between Versions

The substantial difference between the 'weakly anonymous' version and the scientific use file of the BA Employment Panel is that some information in the scientific use file is removed to achieve a higher degree of anonymization, i.e. some variables are left out and other variables are less detailed.

For reasons of data protection, some information is omitted even in the 'weakly anonymous' version. These 'sensitive characteristics' are only available for research projects, where they are required for investigating the specific research question. This has to be justified in the request for data access.

The following table lists the variables that differ in the weakly anonymous version and the scientific use file, and sensitive variables are marked:
