News of March 22, 2023
The SOEP-CMI-ADIAB dataset (version 7520 v1) is made available by the SOEP and the Institute for Employment Research (IAB). It contains data on SOEP survey respondents linked with respondents’ personal administrative data from the IAB, provided that the SOEP respondents have given their consent and could be identified in the IAB data. The survey data in SOEP-CMI-ADIAB include data from SOEP-Core, the IAB-SOEP Migration Sample, the IAB-BAMF-SOEP Survey of Refugees up to and including wave 37 (SOEPv37.eu including the 2020 survey year), and the SOEP Innovation Sample (including the 2020 survey year). The SOEP-CMI-ADIAB data enable analysis of research questions that require the diverse sociodemographic information in the SOEP as well as very precise income data spanning the life course.
The SOEP-CMI-ADIAB data are provided only after users have signed data distribution contracts with both SOEP and IAB. Initially, a guest visit to the IAB’s Research Data Center is required, after which the data can be used via remote data processing. Further information on how to apply for a guest visit can be found here. The SOEP-CMI-ADIAB data will only be available for a limited time, so data distribution contracts will only extend up to December 31, 2026.
Stata test data for the IAB part of the dataset are available to users to allow error-free programs to be written for remote data processing and to prepare for guest visits. These test data cannot be used for substantive analysis, however. There are no test data for the SOEP survey data part.
Detailed information on the SOEP-CMI-ADIAB dataset is provided in FDZ-Datenreport 03/2023, which is available in both German and English:
