This chapter considers the applications of administrative datasets for the purposes of researching employer practices. Administrative data are generally collected by an organization in the course of its regular operations. Their fundamental purpose is to document institutional transactions or practices, and these datasets are maintained by many types of organizations, from government agencies to independent businesses of all sizes. This chapter looks at the advantages, challenges, and limitations of using such data and presents examples of specific administrative datasets with utility for researchers interested in examining employer practices. It concludes by discussing the value of integrating detailed administrative data with survey data.
