About the Center

The Center for Labor Economics (CLE) was established in July 1997 to promote research in labor market issues and policies. The CLE supports two weekly seminars: an informal Labor Lunch Series (held most Fridays for Fall and Spring from 12:00 to 1:00 pm) and the Labor Seminar (held Thursdays during the school term from 2:00 to 4:00 pm). The CLE also sponsors graduate students and visiting research scholars, and publishes a working paper series for the early dissemination of faculty and graduate student research.

New Announcement: External Research Data Center (FDZ) Location at UC Berkeley's Center for Labor Economics

The Center for Labor Economics is pleased to announce the opening of an external Research Data Center (FDZ) of the German Federal Employment Agency (BA) at the Institute for Employment Research (IAB). The FDZ facilitates access to micro data on the labor market for non-commercial empirical research. Originally located at the Institute of Employment Research in Nuremberg, Germany, an additional access point for FDZ data has been opened at the University of California at Berkeley.

For more information on the kind of data available for research please refer here: Accessing German Social Security Records Through the Research Data Center (FDZ) of the BA at IAB.

More information on how to apply for access to the data can be found here: Remote Data Access.
The application form can be found here.
The application instruction can be found here.
Once approval is granted from the FDZ, please print out and sign the Confidentiality Agreement and return to Thembi Jackson at 637 Evans Hall to complete the process.
