Innovative Knowledge Transfer and Evidence-Based Evaluation
How the new minimum wage legislation, which goes into effect on January 1, 2015, is an open question. It is thus all the more important that the effects of the new minimum wage should be evaluated scientifically, for which this project will provide an important database. Researchers from the Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP) research infrastructure at DIW Berlin will, together with colleagues from the Institute for Employment Research (IAB) in Nuremberg and the University of Potsdam, be making data available for evaluation of the new statutory minimum wage in Germany. They will not only be analyzing the data themselves but also providing them for use by interested researchers worldwide. Project site (in German)
