IAB-Erhebung des gesamtwirtschaftlichen Stellenangebots



"In recent years, macroeconomic data on job vacancies are increasingly in the focus of interest. This is due to the fact, that administrative data on job openings do not cover the macroeconomic information, neither in their structure nor in their extend. In Germany, this gap can be bridged by the data of the German Job Vacancy Survey. This representative survey contains information on the number and the structure of job openings. Additionally, it contributes crucially to the understanding of the staffing processes and the reasons for abandoning such processes. Therefore the survey helps to evaluate the balances on the labour market, especially with respect to operational search- and decision processes. The information of the survey contribute to the macroeconomic labour market. From the year 2011 onwards, the waves of the survey will be opened to external scientists one after another by the Research Data Centre (FDZ) of the Federal Employment Agency at the Institute for Employment Research."
