The Data Report is issued by the Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training (BIBB) and supplements the Report on Vocational Education and Training published by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) by providing a wealth of information and analysis relating to various aspects of the development of vocational education and training.
The VET Data Report reports systematically on the current situation and the newest developments in vocational education and training. It is based on empirical data and social research analyses and forms the data basis for the Report on Vocational Education and Training published by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).

The individual chapters present central indicators relating to initial and continuing vocational education and training in the dual system and illustrate developments that have taken place over time. Different main thematic focuses are addressed every year. The Data Report also covers vocational training funding programmes and international indicators and benchmarks.
An English version containing a selection of the main findings from the Data Report is available starting with issue 2010.
