Sample of integrated labour market biographies (SIAB) 1975-2014



"The SIAB is produced at the Research Data Centre (FDZ) of the Federal Employment Agency (BA) at the IAB. The SIAB covers the employment histories of 1,757,925 individuals, and their employment biographies are documented in a total of 58,220,255 lines of data. This Datenreport describes the variables of the weakly anonymous version of the SIAB, which largely comprises the original data, i.e. data which have not undergone anonymisation processes. In order to protect the anonymity of the data subjects, some variables are classified as particularly sensitive and are only disclosed on submission of a special application (see Section 1.2).
The Datenreport on the SIAB is structured as follows. Besides the introduction, Section 1 contains information on data access as well as an outline of the data, the volume structure and a list of variables. A description of the individual data sources can be found in Section 2. Data preparation and data quality are discussed in Sections 3 and 4, whilst the individual variables are described in Section 5." (Author's abstract, IAB-Doku) ((en))
