    Number of Units: 427018
    Number of Variables: 32
Civil servants, self-employed, supporting family members and those marginally employed are not contained in this data. Every person as well as all companies have received identification numbers which after an extensive process present an anonymous version of the original insurance numbers. Through this it is guaranteed that the data from the "company data set" can be correlated with the "person data set", which has already been done with the archived data set. Further data sets from the series of the IAB employee sample are archived under ZA Study Nos. 2640, 3136 and 3348.
