Supplemental Task Survey 2012

In the series of Employment Surveys, wave 2012 is the first where supplemental surveys became feasible.

The Supplemental Tasks Survey has two parts. The first part measures for N = 4,362 individuals approximately one year after conducting the main study

  • mobility parameters (change in wages, working time, change of employer etc.) and
  • generic tasks.

More than 2,000 individuals of the subsample answered also the second part of the survey. They report on a freely chosen working day in November 2012 about

  • the time (hours, minutes) spend when performing single occupational tasks,
  • whether the respective tasks at the reporting day are usually performed or not,
  • how difficult respondents experience performing these tasks (subjective measurement).

The current version (SUF) of the data set 'Tasks 2012' describes a report of our publication series. The questionnaire is available in English language. 

The SUF of the supplemental survey 'Tasks' is available at BIBB-FDZ. To request the SUF, please use our application form at the data access section of the BIBB-FDZ website.

Please note that – in regular – analyses of the supplemental survey 'Tasks' requires using also the main study, because only the main study provides information of supplemental survey participants about socio-demographics, occupations, job profiles, and alike.
