dc.description.abstractIn many situations the applied researcher wants to combine different data sourceswithout knowing the exact link and merging rule. This paper introduces a theoreticalframework how two different regional administrative data sources can be merged. Itpresents different merging schemes based on the area size of intersections betweenboth regional entities. Estimates of intersection areas are derived from a digital mapintersection. The theoretical framework derives conditions for the unbiasedness ofestimated intersections and merging rules. The paper also presents conditions underwhich the choice of merging rule does not matter and illustrates the theoretical resultswith a simulation study. An application to German counties and federal employmentoffice districts illustrates the applicability of the approach. It delivers merging schemesfor regional data sources of the federal German statistical office and of the federalGerman employment office.en_US
