Abstract

"'Working and Learning in a Changing World', or ALWA (the acronym being derived from the study's German name 'Arbeiten und Lernen im Wandel'), is a dataset which was collected as part of the research-project 'Qualifications, Competencies and Working Life' carried out by the department 'Education and Employment over the Life Course' of the Institute for Employment Research (IAB), Nuremberg. It is due to Jutta Allmendinger, the former director of the IAB, that it was possible to pursue the core idea of this survey: to combine a retrospective life course module with tests of the basic cognitive competencies of the 1956-1988 birth cohorts in Germany. The survey was conducted by infas Sozialforschung, Bonn. The ALWA dataset contains information about more than 10,400 life courses and allows detailed longitudinal analyses in particular concerning schooling and training, labour market entry and occupational trajectories, as well as family formation and regional mobility. After an extensive data editing phase, this overview as well as the associated documents and data (ranging from the project description to the provision of the data as a Scientific Use File) provide de-tailed documentation of the data." (Author's abstract, IAB-Doku) ((en)) Additional Information Here you can find the German version of the "Methodenreport".
