Codebook and documentation of the panel study 'Labour Market and Social Security' (PASS)



"FDZ-Datenreporte (FDZ data reports) describe FDZ data in detail. As a result, this series of reports has a dual function: on the one hand, users of the reports can ascertain whether the data offered is suitable for their research task, on the other hand, the data can be used to prepare evaluations. This data report documents the data preparation of the fifth PASS wave and is based upon the fourth wave's data report.
The present wave-specific Datenreport4 of wave 5 documents the wave-related aspects of the study. Following a short overview of the innovations and characteristics of wave 5 (Chapter 1.3), the Datenreport reports the key figures on samples and response rates of wave 5 (Chapter 2). Moreover, the steps of data preparation and the decisions made as part of this process are described (Chapter 5) and an overview of the variables generated is presented (Chapter 4). Additionally, the weighting procedure is presented (Chapter 6). The separate table reports list the frequencies of all variables included in the scientific use file that were recorded in wave 5, divided into their respective datasets (Volume II to Volume V)."
