Summary

The aim of the project is to geo-reference existing micro-level data sets, e.g. the SOEP or the LIAB, and to enrich them with information at a highly disaggregate regional level, e.g. at the county or zip code level. This allows for econometric analyses of the social context on individual behavior such as unemployment benefit recipiency, exit from unemployment, or the social integration of migrants.
