BIBB has a strong tradition of survey-based research. It initiates and realises the collection of individual and firm-level data on crucial positions and transitions in the education and labour market system. The BIBB-FDZ covers a variety of data deploying different units of analysis and temporal designs and focusing on various thematic issues.

Our main activities include the documentation and preparation of BIBB data sets in German. Nevertheless, some selected data sets, namely the Employment Survey 2012 and the TASK Survey 2012, have full data documentation in English language.
