Weakly anonymous Version of the Sample of Integrated Labour Market Biographies (SIAB) – Version 7517 v1

DOI: 10.5164/IAB.SIAB7517.de.en.v1

Summary

The Sample of Integrated Labour Market Biographies (SIAB) is a 2 percent random sample drawn from the Integrated Employment Biographies (IEB) of the Institute for Employment Research (IAB). The IEB make it possible to track the employment status of a person exact to the day. The IEB consist of all individuals in Germany, which are characterized by at least one of the following employment status: employment subject to social security (in the data since 1975), marginal part-time employment (in the data since 1999), benefit receipt according to the German Social Code III or II (SGB III since 1975, SGB II since 2005), officially registered as job-seeking at the German Federal Employment Agency or (planned) participation in programs of active labour market policies (in the data since 2000). These data, which come from different sources, are merged in the IEB.
