The first wave of the survey was carried out in 2016, where interviews were sought with 4.816 persons who have arrived in Germany since 2013. A refreshment sample sample of 2252 persons was added in 2017, to consider asylum-seekers and refugees who moved in by 31.12.2016 and were registered by 1.1.2017. The IAB-BAMF-SOEP Survey of Refugees provides a database which permits to gain new insights about living conditions of individuals who sought protection in Germany in recent years.

The linked administrative data set contains both variables with individual characteristics and characteristics of the establishments the respondents work at.
