Since 1979 this Employment Survey is conducted on regular bases (usually about 5-6 years); the forthcoming BIBB/BAuA Employment Survey 2017/2018 will be the 7th period of the survey. Since 1998/1999 FIOSH (BAuA) is involved in the survey (since 2005/2006 as partner), which resulted in a stronger focus on working conditions and their outcomes. Other aspects of employment, which are considered, are knowledge, requirements, qualification, vocational training etc.
Within the study a representative sample of n=20.000 members of the work force population are questioned using Computer Assisted Telephone Interviews (CATI).
The results of the Employement Survey will be useful within the frame of OSH-monitoring and further policy advising as well as for the science community.
