The establishment history panel 1975-2010



"The Establishment History Panel 1975-2010 is a 50% sample of all establishments through-out Germany with at least one employee liable to social security as of 30th June of a given year. Since 1999, establishments employing only marginal part-time workers are also included in the data. For establishments in western Germany the observation period is 1975 to 2010 and for establishments in eastern Germany 1991 to 2010. However, conclusive analyses for eastern German establishments are only possible from 1993 onwards. The data source for the BHP is the Employment History (Beschäftigten-Historik BeH) of the IAB. The data on individuals contained in the BeH are aggregated to the establishment level using the establishment numbers. The population of the BHP consists of between 1.3 and 2.9 million establishments per year. The individual annual waves can be linked to a panel dataset via the identifier 'artificial establishment number', which can be found in the dataset. This data report describes the variables of the weakly anonymous version of the BHP dataset, which is available to researchers via on-site use at the Research Data Centre (FDZ) or via remote data access. The BHP data are unaltered data, with the sole exception that the original establishment numbers, which are direct identifiers for the different establishments, have been replaced by artificial establishment numbers. In order to protect the anonymity of the establishments still further, some variables are classified as particularly sensitive and are only disclosed on submission of a special application (see Chapter 1.2)."
