AbstractThe BIBB/BAuA Employment Survey 2018, conducted in cooperation with the Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (BAuA), on the topics of "Work and Occupation in Transition" and "Acquisition and Utilisation of Vocational Qualifications" is a representative survey of core workers in Germany. Core workers are people who are at least 15 years old and have a paid job of at least ten hours per week. The focus of the survey is on employment and the workplace at the time of the survey, such as activities performed and skills required, information on the job holders, for example their job satisfaction or their workloads, as well as longitudinal variables on the respondents´ educational and professional history.
