1. LPP: Wave 3 (1617) of the Linked Personnel Panel (LPP) is now available

The new wave 1617 of the LPP is available now. The working tools have been updated and can be downloaded on our homepage: https://fdz.iab.de/en/Integrated_Establishment_and_Individual_Data/lpp.aspx

If you want to update your project, please send us an e-mail (iab.fdz@iab.de)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

2. IAB Job Vacancy Survey: Survey data until the third quarter 2016 is now available

A new wave of the IAB Job Vacancy Survey is now available. The extended dataset now covers the period from the fourth quarter of 2000 until the third quarter of 2016.

For this update, all working tools (data report, codebooks) have been revised as well and can be found at https://fdz.iab.de/en/FDZ_Establishment_Data/IAB_Job_Vacancy_Survey.aspx

Previous versions of the data are still available upon request in the archive of the Research Data Center for replicating the results of existing projects.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

3. LPP: Error correction in lpp_employee_1213_v1.dta and lpp_employee_1415_v1.dta

We detected two errors in lpp_employee_1213_v1.dta and lpp_employee_1415_v1.dta of the LPP. 1. The establishment identifier lpp_betnr is not time-consistent in the LPP employee data. 2. Employees born in Russia were grouped to South and Eastern Europe and employees born in Soviet Union were classified as Asian. We corrected these errors. If you want to update your project with lpp_employee_1213_v2.dta and lpp_employee_1415_v2.dta please send an e-mail iab.fdz@iab.de

Please note: this does not apply to LPP-ADIAB. We apologize for any inconvenience.

4. FDZ Methodenreport 06/2018 'On Omitted Variables, Proxies and Unobserved Effects in Analysis of Administrative Labour Market Data' by Shihan Du, Pia Homrighausen and Ralf A. Wilke is now available

Empirical research addresses omitted variable bias in regression analysis by means of various approaches. We present a framework that nests some of them and put it to German linked administrative labour market data. We find evidence for sizable omitted variable bias in a wage regression, while a labour market transition model appears to be less affected. Additional survey variables contribute only to the wage model, while the use of work history variables and panel models lead to changes in coefficients in the two models. Overall, unobserved effects panel data models with a restricted regressor set are found to control for more information than cross sectional analysis with an extended variable set.

5. FDZ Methodenreport 10/2018 'Do we measure employment durations correctly? The case of German administrative employment data' by Ursula Jaenichen is now available

German social security data on employment are based on compulsory notifications by employers on employees at least once a year. To compute individual employment durations, the employment episodes reported in successive notifications have to be concatenated. Several issues in this computation raise the question of whether the durations are measured precisely. Using IAB data on individual employment biographies, the relevance of these issues is demonstrated empirically.

7. Save the date: Advances in Social Sciences Using Administrative and Survey Data - First French-German conference on research based on confidential administrative and survey data on 28-29 March 2019 in Paris, France

We are very pleased to announce the first CASD / IAB Conference on the advances in social sciences using administrative and survey data. The CASD and the IAB have recently established cross-country access to confidential administrative data in France and Germany. The aim is to foster and facilitate the use of rich register datasets which can be partly combined with detailed survey data from both countries and to improve the data sources for comparative research in social sciences.

The conference aims to bring together researchers using confidential administrative data in France and Germany and also welcomes researchers using similar data from other countries.

8. Reporting employees who left the institution

We want to remind you that, according to section 6 III of your use agreement, you have a reporting obligation for data users in your project leaving your institution. This also applies if you leave the institution yourself. Please inform the FDZ by e-mail immediately.

This reporting obligation is necessary to ensure data security. Users are only allowed to analyze our data with a valid use agreement. If you leave the contracting research institution, you are no longer allowed to access the data under that agreement. Nevertheless, it is possible that your new research institution signs a similar use agreement with us so that you can continue working on your projects.
