Integrated Panel of Finnish Companies and Workers
In this paper we describe the compiling of the integrated data which comprises longitudinal information on Finnish companies and workers. The company panel of the data is dynamically representative over time and covers a wide range of the economy. The worker panel covers in principle all people who have been employed in the private sector during the period 1988-96. Worker and company records can be easily matched to form linked data sets of companies and their employees. We describe the data sources used and discuss some problems which might occur in using the data as well as the potential of the data in future labour market research. To provide evidence on the quality of the data, we also report some descriptive figures with emphasis on job and worker flow statistics.
