  • Abstract

    There is a lack of individual data that provide sufficient information on the direct neighbourhood of an individual for the analysis of neighbourhood effects. Regarding German post code levels, the DIW-IAB-RWI Neighbourhood Panel aims at closing this gap. It is based on the Integrated Employment Biographies (IEB) which were aggregated to provide information on employees subject to social security contributions and unemployed for each German post code. These data can be merged to the German Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP) and further datasets provided by the research data centres at DIW, IAB and RWI.
