Neukonzeption der Typisierung im SGB-II-Bereich



"Since 2006, the IAB develops classifications of job centres, which are regulated according to the Social Code Book (SGB) II. These classifications account for the fact that there are substantial disparities in the economic or social structure of German regions. These disparities affect the work of local job centres and must be observed if performance figures are compared across regions. This is accomplished by grouping job centres with similar regional conditions into distinct types. The classifications are updated after several years to account for changing conditions. The present revision goes far beyond a simple update. In principle, it pursues two objectives: for the first time, all three target dimensions of the SGB II are explicitly incorporated into the classification process with equal weights. Additionally, the new types put a stronger focus on factors specific for the job centres regulated by the SGB II. This report documents the revision in detail and presents its results."
