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. Most studies and data are in German language.

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.
One of the Bundesbank's tasks is to collect statistical data. Some of these data are then fed into the time series published on the internet in the time series database. In recent years, there have been increased demands for all data providers to make more data available for research purposes. This applies, on the one hand, to the individual data used for the calculation of the published aggregated data. This is because only using these individual data is it possible to accurately reflect the heterogeneity of the relevant feature carriers in academic studies. Due to legal requirements, individual data cannot be made generally available. However, these data are made available under strict conditions and for clearly defined academic research purposes at the Research Centre of the Deutsche Bundesbank. Furthermore, in the area of aggregated data, there is also an increasing demand for real-time data. These data reflect an out-of-date data set and may therefore deviate from data currently available as a result of corrections carried out in the meantime.
