1. IAB-BAMF-SOEP Survey of Refugees

The IAB-BAMF-SOEP Survey of Refugees in Germany is a representative longitudinal survey conducted jointly by the Institute for Employment Research (IAB) in Nuremberg, the Research Centre on Migration, Integration, and Asylum of the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF-FZ) and the German Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP) at the DIW Berlin. The first wave of the survey was carried out in 2016, where interviews were sought with 4.816 persons and is available as SUF from the FDZ of the BA at the IAB and from the SOEP at the DIW Berlin.

Further information and data access are available at our website: http://fdz.iab.de/en/FDZ_Individual_Data/iab-bamf-soep.aspx

----------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2. BHP: New version of Establishment History Panel (BHP 7516) is available

The Establishment History Panel is a 50 % random sample of all establishments in Germany with at least one employee. The new version covers the time period 1975-2016. Within a research project of the IAB in cooperation with the Halle Institute for Economic Research (IWH) new data have been exploited that allow identifying establishment that vanish from the data due to bankruptcies from 2007 onwards. These indicators are contained in the extension file – bankruptcies and can be linked to the BHP data.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------- 3. LPP: Test data for the first and second wave of the LPP are available

The Linked Personnel Panel (LPP) is available to researchers for analysis during a stay as a guest researcher at the FDZ and via remote data access. These types of data access on the one hand and the complex data structure of the LPP on the other hand make it essential to provide relevant test data for the preparation of programs if the data are to be processed efficiently. On the basis of these test data users can already familiarise themselves with the data in advance, prepare their programs independently and test them.

The test data – which exists for the first and second wave of the LPP - are freely accessible over the website of the FDZ now. 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. Due to data protection requirements, the data have to be absolutely anonymous. That means: Test data are random and therefore not eligible for analysis.

The test data can be found at: http://fdz.iab.de/en/Integrated_Establishment_and_Individual_Data/lpp.aspx

4. New On-site Access Point at the Groupe des Ecoles Nationales d'Economie et Statistique (GENES) in France

FDZ is excited to announce the opening of a new access point for on-site access to FDZ data! The Centre d'Acces Securise aux Donnees (CASD) at GENES has agreed to host an access point to FDZ data. To make an appointment for on- site access at CASD, please directly contact the local supervisor.

Contact details are given at: http://fdz.iab.de/en/FDZ_Data_Access/FDZ_On-Site_Use/Standorte.aspx

5. FDZ Methodenreport 03/2018 'A Proposed Data Set for Analyzing the Labor Market Trajectories of East Germans around Reunification' by Hannah Liepmann and Dana Mueller is now available

Data from German social security notifications and internal procedures of the Federal Employment Agency are an important source for analyzing labor market trajectories. How-ever, for East Germans these data are only fully available from 1992 onwards. As a consequence of German reunification, by 1992 significant fractions of East Germans had already lost their jobs, had changed their occupations and industries, and had moved to West Germany. We partially close the gap in the data by linking the 'Integrated Employment Biographies' – that start in 1992 for East Germany – with the GDR’s 'Data Fund of Societal Work Power' from 1989. The new data set permits the analysis of phenomena such as unemployment, job mobility, and regional mobility. It can also be used to refine the existing knowledge of the individual-level labor market consequences of German reunification. While the GDR add-on is currently not part of our regular data portfolio, our long-term goal is to make the new data set available to the research community via the Research Data Center of the Federal Employment Agency.

7. The 1st Forum 'Higher Education and the Labour Market': Call for Papers

On September 18th and 19th, 2018 the 1st Forum 'Higher Education and the Labour Market' (HELM) of the German Centre for Higher Education Research and Science Studies (DZHW) and the Institute for Employment Research (IAB) will take place in Nuremberg.

The main topic of that conference is, how the fundamental changes in the structure and content of tertiary education during recent years as well as the increase in the supply of highly qualified labour will affect the placement of graduates on the labour market. We appreciate empirical contributions from various disciplines, in particular from Economics, the Social Sciences, and Education that focus on the link between higher education and the labour market from different perspectives.

Please submit a short abstract (500 words maximum) by May 31st 2018 to HELM@iab.de.

Further Information as well as a detailed call for papers can be found at http://www.iab.de/helm
