Linked Personnel Panel (LPP) – Version 1617 v1

DOI: 10.5164/IAB.LPP1617.de.en.v1

Summary

With the LPP, the IAB provides a novel data product for personnel economic research in Germany. The simultaneous observation of employer and employee perspective allows both cross and longitudinal analyses of the relationship between HR management, individual job quality and firm performance. The following central questions can be answered on the basis of the data: Which HR management instruments are used by establishments? Are there differences in the heterogeneity of application, for instance with respect to establishment size classes or sectors? How do HR management strategies develop over time? Is there an impact of certain HR management strategies on firm performance? Is there an impact of certain HR management strategies on employees’ attitudes, satisfaction, health status, commitment etc.? The linkage of the surveys with the IAB Establishment Panel offers further analytic potential.

For detailed information on the IAB Establishment Panel please refer to the Establishment Panel web sites of the department 'Establishments and Employment' as well as to the related FDZ web site.

Data Access

LPP is available via the following way of access:

  • On-site Use included Remote Data Access. Further information on Applying for on-site use. With your application to LPP we provide automatically the IAB Establishment Panel.

Test data

Test data help to prepare programs ahead of on-site and remote data access. The test data include all variables of the original data with the same variable name variable label and value label. It is possible to generate a panel over all waves with coherence of characteristics over time. They are freely accessible over the web and therefore have to be anonymised. That means: Test data are random and therefore not eligible for Analysis!

Other Working Tools

    The paper by Kampkötter et al. (2016) offers a summary of the data.
  • Generation of a Panel:
    We provide Stata programs to generate a Panel.
     
  • FDZ Methodenreport 1/2008: Das IAB-Betriebspanel – von der Stichprobe über die Erhebung bis zur Hochrechnung [The IAB Establishment Panel - Sample, Survey and Weighting]:
    The FDZ Methodenreport 1/2008 discusses methodological aspects of the IAB Establishment Panel. Primarily, it is meant to facilitate first-time analysis of the dataset. Also, the article may be used as a reference for methodological issues related to the IAB Establishment Panel. A brief description can be found in
    Schmollers Jahrbuch 2009.
  • English Labels:
    The LPP is available with English labels. Stata user can get access to the labels by using the command "label language en".
