"Little is currently known about the employment histories and earnings of migrants prior to migration to Germany. Not only does the new IAB-SOEP Migration Sample close this gap but it also provides comprehensive information about the determinants of labor market integration of immigrants in Germany. People who were employed prior to arrival are frequently also subsequently employed in Germany and their income gains are usually high. Knowledge of German and having professional qualifications recognized raises wages and increases the chances of being employed according to the level of qualification." (Author's abstract, IAB-Doku) ((en))
