The research project on "East European Forced Labor Workers in the Third Reich" at the Institute of Statistics at the University of Konstanz includes a a statistical projection of the surviving East European forced labor workers as of 1999, a critique of another projection implemented by Dr. M. Spoerer, and a critical investigation of the data supplied by East European Foundation Initiatives in 1999.

The differences between Spoerer's and Jeske's projections of the number of civil forced labor workers from East European countries amount to 360,000 entitled persons in the year 2000.

Apart from the projections, information and data provided by several national Foundation Initiatives were investigated. Data from Poland and the Ukraine appear to be questionable, whereas data from the Czech Republic appears to be very accurate.

A projection of Jewish slave labor workers still alive in 2000 appears to be infeasible from a statistical point of view, because no adequate data is available to this date. Hence former Jewish slave labor workers have to be added to the number of former forced labor workers according to Jewish organizations.
