Unit non-response in establishments surveyed for the first time in the IAB Establishment Panel
"The aim of this paper is to analyse unit non-response in establishments surveyed for the first time in the IAB Establishment Panel. For this a theoretical framework is presented which helps to explain the decision to participate in establishment surveys. The empirical results largely confirm this framework. If the respondent has the authority to provide the relevant information and is able to give reliable answers to the questions with a justifiable amount of effort, participation is less frequently refused. However, these two aspects are less likely to be the case as the size of the establishment and the complexity of the firm increase, so participation accordingly becomes more improbable. It can also be shown that experienced and professional interviewers are more successful in recruiting firms to take part in the survey. However this result only holds for smaller establishments."
