Orbis-ADIAB: From record linkage key to research dataset



"We describe the first steps of creating a research dataset from a company-establishment correspondence table. This correspondence table allows the combination of commercial company data from Bureau van Dijk (BvD) with administrative employment data of the Institute for Employment Research (IAB). To combine the research potentials of both data sources, a record linkage of independent companies given in BvD's database Orbis with their dependent subunits, i.e. establishments given in the Establishment History Panel (BHP), was performed. We describe the major challenges in creating the research dataset from the record linkage key. We then present representativity analyses that examine the selectivity of the resulting linked dataset. The new research dataset contains longitudinal information on companies, their dependent establishments and their employees. This dataset is currently in an internal test phase and cannot yet be accessed by the research community." (Author's abstract, IAB-Doku) ((en))
