BIBB/BAuA Employment Survey 2012

BIBB/BAuA Employment Survey 2012

The 2012 Employment Survey is a representative survey of core employed persons in Germany. "Core employed persons" are at least 15 years old and are engaged in paid work of at least 10 hours per week. The data set contains differentiated information on employed persons and jobs in Germany. On the one hand, the focus is on questions about the workplace (task requirements, level of requirements, knowledge requirements, work requirements, need for further training, working conditions, workloads, etc.), on the other hand, the relationship between education and employment is addressed (schooling, education and further training, career path, employment appropriate to training, change of occupation, usability of vocational qualifications, etc.). Different occupational classifications allow a differentiated presentation according to occupations and training occupations.

Number of cases: 20,036
Population: German Working Population aged 15 and elder in paid employment with at least 10 working hours per week.
Number of variables: SUF: 655, GWA/DFV: 140 (including 58 full texts, 4 regional identifiers, 78 occupational codes at the 3-/4-/5-digit level)
Representative region: Spatial planning region (Raumordnungsregion)
Weighting: design and population weight; projection weight
