Research data from the BIBB

Coverbild: BWP 2/2016

In addition to the role it plays in preparing both the Report on Vocational Education and Training and the vocational education and training statistics, the BIBB makes a major contribution to vocational education and training research as a result of its varied research activities. This BWP issue provides an insight into the extensive data sets which are analysed and evaluated by the BIBB, and which are made available to external researchers through the research data centre. At the same time, it explains the answers this data is able to provide to current questions within vocational education and training.
