1. IAB Job Vacancy Survey: Survey data until the third quarter 2017 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 2017.

A record-linkage with administrative data of the Establishment History Panel (BHP) from wave 2010 on is available for all establishments of the IAB Job Vacancy Survey.

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/IAB_SE0016.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.

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

2. SIAB-R 7517: New Scientific Use File (SUF) of the Sample of Integrated Labour Market Biographies (Stichprobe der Integrierten Arbeitsmarktbiografien) is now available

The SIAB is a 2 percent random sample of individuals in Germany that have been employed subject to social security, have received benefits according to the German Social Code Book II or III, have been registered as jobseekers at the German Federal Employment Agency (Bundesagentur fuer Arbeit, BA) or participated in an employment or training measure. The SIAB Regional File is factually anonymous and can be downloaded from an exchange server after successful application.

The current version of the SIAB Regional File covers the period 1975 to 2017. It contains the employment histories of 1,827,903 individuals.

For further information: https://fdz.iab.de/en/FDZ_Individual_Data/integrated_labour_market_biographies/SIAB-R7517.aspx

To update your project, please submit a request for a supplementary data use agreement. We also require a notification of deletion for the previous version that you were using.

For further details and forms, please see https://fdz.iab.de/en/FDZ_Data_Access/FDZ_Scientific_Use_Files.aspx or contact us at iab.fdz@iab.de.

3. JoSuA will be temporarily unavailable on 19/20 September 2019

Due to server maintenance work, JoSuA will be unavailable from September 19, 11.00 German time (UTC+2) until September 20, 12.00 German time. Running jobs might be cancelled during this period. Please take this into consideration when planning your work schedule. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

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

4. Filtering of do-files submitted via JoSuA

We're going to extend the input filters in JoSuA. In the future it will be mandatory that any use statement explicitly includes one of the predefined globals $orig or $data. A statement like <use "$datafile"> will no longer work. You will need to rewrite this to <use "$data/$file">, for instance. The exception to the rule is the use of "tempfile", which, of course, will still be allowed. The same applies to the statements "save" ($data) and "log" ($log). The extended filters concern the Internal Use mode as well as the Publication mode and will come into effect on September 20.

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

5. New question in the data access application form – Use of international external data

The FDZ is part of the International Data Access Network (IDAN). In this project, European research data centers are cooperating to facilitate access to the network partners’ data. Currently, the FDZ is hosting remote access for data from the French Secure Access Data Center (CASD) and from Statistics Netherlands (CBS). Additional co-operations, for example with the Office for National Statistics (ONS) and the UK Data Service (UKDS), are under way. Researchers can access these network partners’ data in the FDZ safe room. We have added a new question in our application form, asking whether you are planning to use the external data provided via IDAN to track demand of international data.

If you are interested in IDAN, using external data or doing cross-country research, please refer to our website: https://fdz.iab.de/en/external_data.aspx

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

6. No disclosure of passwords

We would like to remind you that passwords for data access are personal and must not be disclosed to others. This also applies colleagues working on the same project. Each user can only log in using his/her own password.
