Abstract: The newly created Research Data Centres (or Forschungsdatenzentren) much improved the access of researchers to micro data from official statistics in Germany. This paper surveys selected earlier studies using firm level data with a view on the policy conclusions. We focus on job turnover, exports, and technical efficiency. The bottom line is that any policy measure should not be based on the fact that a firm belongs to a certain industry or size class – categories of this kind do not discriminate between units that are more or less successful as regards job creation, exports, or efficiency. Establishments and enterprises are heterogeneous even in narrowly defined industries and size classes – there is no such thing as a representative firm.
