The Selection of Pay Referents: Potential Patterns and Impacts on Life Satisfaction

Despite the relatively extensive research on pay levels and the consequences of income disparities, little is known about which reference groups people choose for comparative evaluation of personal income and why different selection patterns emerge. The aim of this paper is to dig deeper for answers to the following three questions: (1) What are the most important reference groups for income comparisons? ...

20 Jahre Wiedervereinigung: wie weit Ost- und Westdeutschland zusammengerückt sind

Ist inzwischen zusammengewachsen, was zusammengehört? Die Prüfung dieser von Willy Brandt im November 1989 formulierten Vision erfordert eine Bilanzierung, die die Verteilung von Einkommen und Arbeitsmarktchancen ebenso in den Blick nimmt wie Haushalts- und Familienformen und die subjektiven Bewertungen dieser Lebensumstände in Form von Zufriedenheiten und Sorgen, Einstellungen und Werten.1 Die empirischen ...

Empirical Welfare Analysis in Random Utility Models of Labour Supply

The aim of this paper is to apply recently proposed individual welfare measures in the context of random utility models of labour supply. Contrary to the standard practice of using reference preferences and wages, these measures preserve preference heterogeneity in the normative step of the analysis. They also make the ethical priors, implicit in any interpersonal comparison, more explicit. On the ...

Redistribution and Insurance in the German Welfare State

Welfare states redistribute both between individuals reducing annual inequality and over the life-cycle insuring against income risks. But studies measuring redistribution often focus only on a one-year period. Using German SOEP data from 1984 to 2009, long-term inequality over a 20-year period is computed and then decomposed into an inter- and intra-individual component. Results show that annual inequality ...

Using Personal Car Register for Measuring Economic Inequality in Countries with a Large Share of Shadow Economy: Evidence for Latvia

We suggest to use information from the state register of personal cars as an alternative indicator of economic inequality in countries with a large share of shadow economy. We illustrate our approach using the Latvian pool of personal cars. Our main finding is that the extent of household economic inequality in Latvia is much larger than officially assumed. The latest officially available estimate ...

Entwicklung der Altersarmut in Deutschland

Seit dem Jahr 2000 sinken die von der Gesetzlichen Rentenversicherung (GRV) ausgezahlten individuellen Beträge fur männliche Neurentner. Wer heute in Rente geht, erhält im Schnitt sieben Prozent weniger als jemand, der noch vor zehn Jahren in den Ruhestand wechselte. Gleichzeitig nimmt die Zahl der Bezieher von Grundsicherung im Alter seit 2003 deutlich zu. Dennoch zeigt sich, dass das generelle relative ...
