This paper details the WageIndicator web-survey, the questionnaire and its dataset. The paper is an update of previous codebooks and explanatory notes.1 In the past years, the WageIndicator web-survey and its datacollection has undergone several technological innovations. In 2009, it was decided to include both the complete and the incomplete data in the dataset. For this purpose, the data from 2006 on was again tapped from the server, leading to a new dataset. It was also decided to derive the computed variables, such as hourly wage, instantly during survey completion and to communicate inconsistencies with the respondent at the end of the survey. From 2010 on the dataprocessing and the questionnaire management are intrinsically intertwined and no longer two separate activities. The current codebook is based on the backward datatap and the revised questionnaire.
