"The 'Jahrbücher für Nationalökonomie und Statistik' have a long lasting tradition in publishing papers that apply econometrics to Labor market issues, and the contributions in this special issue fit into this tradition: The first two papers by Gerard A. Pfann and Daniel S. Hamermesh, and by Robert A. Hart and Yue Ma can be considered as prototypes of this literature. Both papers deal with an important aspect of Labor markets (labor turnover and worker displacement, and wage-hours contracts), build a theoretical model, and then test its implications empirically using micro data. The next seven contributions consider aspects of the German labor market. Bernd Fitzenberger, Wolfgang Franz and Oliver Bode present new estimates of a Phillips curve and the NAIRU. Claus Schnabel and Joachim Wagner, Kornelius Kraft and Julia Lang, and Lutz Bellmann, Knut Gerlach and Wolfgang Meyer consider institutions that shape the German labor market - unions, works councils, and company-level pacts for employment. Aspects of the wage structure in Germany are investigated in the papers by Thomas Cornelissen, Uwe Jirjahn and Georgi Tsertsvadze, and by Patrick Puhani, who additionally compares the results for Germany with findings for Britain and the United States. Gesine Stephan reports new results on the effects of active Labor market programs in Germany. The last three papers of this issue have a focus on new empirical methods. Reinhard Hujer, Paulo J. M. Rodrigues, and Katja Wolf discuss dynamic panel data models with spatial correlation, Jörg Breitung deals with methods for the quantification of survey expectations, and Gerd Ronning looks at the consequences of using joint anonymization of all variables in a set of micro data by multiplicative noise for the research potential of scientific use files. The authors of the contributions to this issue dedicate their papers to their friend and colleague Olaf Hübler, a labormetrician par excellence, on the occasion of his 65th birthday on March 5, 2009."
