Private Bildungsausgaben für Kinder: einkommensschwache Familien sind relativ stärker belastet

Bildung ist nicht ausschließlich steuerfinanziert – für viele Angebote sind mindestens Zuzahlungen aus eigener Tasche nötig, so auch bei Bildungs- und Betreuungsangeboten für Kinder. Die privaten Ausgaben von Haushalten für Bildungsangebote hängen maßgeblich von den Ressourcen des jeweiligen Familienhaushalts ab. Wie dieser Zusammenhang im Detail aussieht, ist bislang allerdings wenig erforscht. Die ...

Millionaires under the Microscope: Data Gap on Top Wealth Holders Closed: Wealth Concentration Higher than Presumed

Individuals with assets in the millions of euros have been underrepresented in population surveys and accordingly little has been known about them. As a result, the full extent of wealth concentration in Germany was unknown.

Private Spending on Children’s Education: Low-Income Families Pay Relatively More

Education is not financed solely by the taxpayer—many institutions and activities require payment of top-up fees, at the very least. This applies for instance to education and care services for children. A household’s private expenditure on education depends largely on the families’ available financial resources. However, to date, very little research has been conducted on the relationship between ...
