Description
  • Abstract

    This data material is the first comprehensive and diverse publication of statistical labor market data of the former GDR. The compilation is focused on data on population, occupations, qualification and the educational system. Most of the data was confidential in the past. A number of tables contain calculations by the authors based on the official statistics. The authors attempted to provide time series that are as long as possible, in order to enable a long term overview on the labor market developments of the GDR. In addition some macroeconomic indices were included that can serve as a benchmark for labor market data. This data collection provides material for those who are interested in labor market problems and enables an analysis of economic and social processes within the GDR which can also considered as a relief when one has to made political economic decisions. There is no detailed bibliography. Most data is based on the information in the official statistical year books of the GDR, on former confidential and non-confidential reports of the former GDR´s national statistical office, on data of the statistical year books of GDR´s universities and on own computations.
