The German Socio-Economic Panel Study (SOEP) is a wide-ranging representative longitudinal study of private households, located at the German Institute for Economic Research, DIW Berlin. Every year, there were nearly 11,000 households, and more than 20,000 persons sampled by the fieldwork organization TNS Infratest Sozialforschung. The data provide information on all household members, consisting of Germans living in the Old and New German States, Foreigners, and recent Immigrants to Germany. The Panel was started in 1984. Some of the many topics include household composition, occupational biographies, employment, earnings, health and satisfaction indicators.

The Economics & Business Data Center (EBDC) is a combined platform for empirical research in business administration and economics of the Ludwig–Maximilian University of Munich (LMU) and the Ifo Institute and aims at opening new fields for empirical research in business administration and economics. In this regard, the EBDC provides innovative datasets of German companies, containing both survey data of the Ifo Institute as well as external balance sheet data. Therefore, the tasks of the EBDC also include the procurement and administration of data sources for research and teaching, the central provision, updating and documentation of external databases, as well as the acquisition of corresponding support tools. Beyond that, the EBDC serves as a contact and central coordinator on licensing economic firm-level datasets for LMU’s Munich School of Management and LMU’s Department of Economics and supports researchers and guests of the LMU and the Ifo Institute on site. In the future, it will also conduct academic conferences on research with company data.

The Research Data Centre (FDZ-RV) was set-up in 2004 as an integral part of the German Federal Pension Insurance (Deutsche Rentenversicherung). Since then, the Research Data Centre produced several cross-sectional and longitudinal datasets, also called Scientific Use Files (SUF), available to researchers interested in issues of retirement, disability and rehabilitation. The datasets are released on an annual basis. The Scientific Use Files are subsamples drawn from the pool of individuals who are insured in the Federal Pension Insurance. The information provided in the original datasets is necessary to administer the beneficiaries of the pension insurance.

Currently, micro-data on research and development activities (R & D) can be used in the German economy, which is collected on behalf of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Core indicators are the internal and external R & D expenditures of enterprises by use of funds and source of funding, R & D personnel by type of activity and sex, the regional distribution of research institutions, the business innovation and economic indicators. Some time series are available from the year 1979. For all odd report annual data are available for all largely within Germany R & D-active companies. In even years under review a representative sample of research companies is questioned. The data are broken down by industry, region, company size and other characteristics evaluated. The survey is part of the official EU Community Statistics, and is incorporated into national and international reporting systems.

The archive curates data and makes them available to researchers. Curation comprises digitization, structuring and consistent documentation of audio and video recordings, transcripts, metadata and additional material. The scientific public can access the data via the Database for Spoken German (DGD2) or via a personal archive service. The AGD also advises researchers in using the existing inventory as well as in creating their own oral corpora.
