4. SIEED: New Data Set using linked-employer-employee data is now available
The Sample of Integrated Employer-Employee Data (SIEED) is a linked-employer-
employee data set based solely on administrative employer notifications
covering the years 1975 to 2018.
It is particularly suitable for e.g. examining the wage structure in
establishments or employment mobility.
In contrast to the LIAB data products it dispenses with survey information and
other administrative data sources, but can use a larger sample and represent a
broader period of time.
For further information please visit our website:
The IAB has launched two new surveys in 2020 to investigate the consequences
of the Covid 19 pandemic. These are the online survey ‘Living and Working in
Times of Corona (HOPP)’ and the online survey ‘Establishment Survey on Exit
from Covid-19 Shutdown (BeCovid)’. Both surveys are still in the field. The
FDZ plans to make the surveys available to the research community in 2021.
Test data for the data product 'FDZ Sample of the Administrative Wage and
Labor Market Flow Panel (FDZ-AWFP)' are now available at the FDZ homepage.
Further information and download of the test data:
During the Christmas break, on-site access at both the Nuremberg site and at

execution services. However, the internal use mode of JoSuA will be active.
Advisory services will be limited.
In the light of current events, we would like to remind you that you are
obligated to delete the data set, including any backup files, data extracts

agreement). The deletion notification has to be confirmed by the data
protection commissioner or the head of the institution. In the event of
