"The Establishment History Panel was formed on the basis of the Employee and Benefit Recipient History (BLH), version 4.00, for the years 1993 to 2003. The BLH is made up of the social security agencies' processed notifications to the Federal Employment Agency (BA), combined with information on individuals who have received earnings-replacement benefits from the BA. In the standardised notifications on social security, employers state the establishment number of the employing establishment, along with information on when an employment relationship begins and ends, how much wage the employees receive, which occupation they carry out and which nationality they hold, for example. Each employees social security number also provides information on their gender and date of birth. Chapter 2 of this data report provides a brief description of the dataset. Subsequently, Chapter 3 goes into the details of the compulsory social security notification System. Chapter 4 contains an explanation of the BA's definition of an establishment, which is strongly dependent on the process of allocating establishment numbers. In Chapter 5. the variables of the Establishment History Panel are described in detail, and the corresponding frequency counts are contained in Chapter 6."
