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

as well and can be found at:
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 (firstname.lastname@example.org).
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
The current version of the SIAB Regional File covers the period 1975 to 2017.
It contains the employment histories of 1,827,903 individuals.

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
or contact us at email@example.com.
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.
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.
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
If you are interested in IDAN, using external data or doing cross-country
research, please refer to our website:
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.
