The goal of the project is to analyse firm-specific employment adjustments on macro and micro shocks. This will be done with a new German linked employer-employee data set. The data is composed of the IFO Business Survey and the IAB employment statistics. We analyse how hiring and separation rates as well as the amount of jobs are adjusted on firm-specific and macroeconomic shocks.
