The Macroeconomy and Institutions

Research perspectives

The research area „The Macroeconomy and Institutions“ analyses the labour market effects of economic policy measures and institutions, the short- and long-term development of the labour market as well as labour supply and demand at the macro-level. It further explores developments related to the low-wage sector and the basic income system for unemployed job seekers. Key permanent tasks include the IAB Job-Vacancy Survey, the IAB short-term forecast and the IAB working time measurement concept, amongst others. The research area further builds up the „Sample of Integrated Basic Income Biographies (SIG)“, which is also an important data source for economic research and policy advice.
