IW Panels

Companies and their employees in Germany are facing a variety of challenges: new opportunities resulting from technological progress, global business relations and global competition, the demographic transition and the skilled labour shortage - and, unfortunately, the occurrence of ever new crises around the world.

As a result, the researchers in our Research Unit constantly confront the challenge of showing how corporate Germany is positioned, what lines of development companies are facing and whether policymakers are taking appropriate measures to nurture entrepreneurial activity and thus support the German economy.

This is where we come in. The IW Panels Research Unit designs and organises surveys of companies and employees for the specialist researchers in our thematic clusters and for external clients. This Research Unit runs the IW Future Panel and the IW Staff Panel but also conducts individual surveys.

We support the entire survey process from the initial conception, budgeting and proposal preparation, through questionnaire design, programming and implementation of the online survey, to data cleaning, extrapolation and evaluation. As survey experts, we always work closely with the economic experts in the institute’s thematic clusters.
