PASS: a new panel study for labour market research


"This paper aims to introduce a new large-scale panel study ('PASS') for research on the labour market, the welfare state and poverty that combines a sample of 6,000 recipient households with an equally large sample of the general population. The authors show how research goals and the specific population of the survey are accounted for in a tailored survey design. The authors point the reader to new research potential created by the new study. The new potential is mainly derived from the sampling design (large recipient sample combined with a population sample), the direct measurement of poverty by a deprivation index, the detailed measurement of the migratory background, additional information (like attitudes, search intensity) for models of recipiency dynamics, and the linkage of the survey data with administrative data. The data set described fills a major gap in the data-infrastructure available for labour-market research. From a methodological point of view it presents an innovative sampling design."
