Sample of Integrated Welfare Benefit Biographies (SIG)

The Sample of Integrated Welfare Benefit Biographies (SIG) is a 5 percent random sample drawn from the Unemployment Benefit II Recipient History (LHG) of the Institute for Employment Research (IAB). Comprehensive records on both the sampled individuals and their household members from the Integrated Employment Biographies (IEB) further enrich this data. The IEB consist of daily information on employment subject to social security, marginal part-time employment, benefit receipt according to the German Social Code III or II, official registration as job seeking at the German Federal Employment Agency, and (planned) participation in programs of active labour market policies. Upon reasonable request, this already rich data product can further be extended by means of detailed financial information on welfare receipt from the UB II Income and Benefit Statistics – Sample of the IAB (LST-S). All information is available for the period of 2007 through 2017.
