The project is funded for three years from 2015-17 by the Leibniz Association under the title “Evaluating the Minimum Wage Introduction in Germany (EVA-MIN)”.

The scholars get access to the SOEP data – including the variables from the recently introduced minimum-wage module – and remote access to the IAB databases.
The working language is English and German.
