----------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2. FDZ Methodenreport 07/2018 'Auswirkungen des gesetzlichen Mindestlohns auf die Beschaeftigungssituation von Gefluechteten' by Clemens Ohlert and Oliver Bruttel is now available

This report discusses current and future opportunities to evaluate effects of the general minimum wage on employment chances of refugees. For this purpose, the recent developments of refugees‘ immigration and labour market integration in Germany are summarized. It is then explored whether available datasets on refugees are suitable to evaluate minimum wage effects, considering different methodological approaches. We conclude that an evaluation of minimum wage effects on refugees can currently hardly be performed adequately.

3. FDZ Methodenreport 08/2018 'Identification of the statutory retirement dates in the Sample of Integrated Labour Market Biographies (SIAB)' by Svenja Lorenz, Mona Pfister, and Thomas Zwick is now available

This report analyses how administrative data on the labour history of individuals can be used to identify financial incentives within the pension system. It uses the Sample of Integrated Labour Market Biographies (SIAB 7514) and shows how the missing information on pension-relevant periods can be complemented. First an identification strategy is described to determine the eligibility of the old age pension types and the earliest statutory retirement dates (normal retirement age and early retirement age). In addition, the report shows that the errors in identifying the relevant eligibility criteria for old age pension types can be reduced to a negligible amount when the sample is restricted to employees with a high labour market attachment and short gaps in their labour market histories. In three practical applications this report shows that easily to add pension-relevant information turns administrative labour market data sets to a valuable alternative for the analysis of the labour market behaviour of older employees.

4. FDZ Methodenreport 09/2018 'Skilled or unskilled – Improving the information on qualification for employee data in the IAB Employee Biography' by Ulrich Thomsen, Johannes Ludsteck, and Alexandra Schmucker is now available

This FDZ Methodenreport describes the implementation of a deterministic imputation model for education in the Employee History (Beschaeftigtenhistorik (BeH)) of the Institute for Employment Research (IAB). The imputation model was originally invented by Fitzenberger, Osikominu, and Voelter, but now was adapted for the current Employee History. First the extent of the data quality problem is sketched out and different variants of the solving imputation model are evaluated.

Then the implementation of the selected variant in the Employee History is described in detail. Afterwards some descriptive graphs show the resulting imputed data. In order to give the user a good impression about the goodness of the selected imputation model the quality of the imputed information is tested with some regression models. The regression results indicate, which variables in the Employee History have an influence on the quality of the imputed values. This allows an assessment of its usability for certain subgroups in the data.
