Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Evaluating the Labor Market Effects of Compulsory Military Service in Germany

Between 1956 and 2011 more than 12.4 million German men had to perform some form of compulsory national service, either military or civil. However, little is known about the impacts of this conscription system on draftees in Germany. I present new evidence on the long-run effects of mandatory military service on wages of West-German men born between 1960 and 1970 using detailed longitudinal data.
