At its offices in Palaiseau on 11 September 2018, CASD held a day dedicated to French and German employee /employer data with the participation of INSEE and IAB (Institute for Employment Research at the German Federal Employment Agency). Over 60 participants attended a very detailed presentation of the Annual Declarations of Social Data (DADS). Users – from beginners to experts – were able to discuss the representativeness of these data, their comparability over time and any possible interplay between the different files.
To start the day, Marie-Christine LAIBLE, with the Research Data Centre of the Institute for Employment Research (FDZ / IAB), offered an introduction to German data on employment and social security for which an access point from France has just been set up at CASD.
Based on the success of this day and the positive feedback from the participants, CASD intends to propose similar days on other data sources.
