Abstract: We present new register data from the German public employment service. The data contain daily information on the timing of three policy tools that aim at reintegration of the unemployed: invitations to individual meetings with the caseworker, vacancy referrals, and integration contracts. The data can be used to study these policy tools directly, or as time-varying control variables when studying other aspects of active labor market policy like training programs. The data can be merged to other administrative data of the German labor market and are available for the research community.
