Project Start:10/2015
Researchers:Nicola Fuchs-Schündeln
Category: Household Finance
Funded by:LOEWE

To give an account of the development of income inequality in Germany during the financial crisis, we will update the empirical analysis of a previous publication (Fuchs-Schündeln/Krüger/Sommer: Inequality Trends for Germany in the Last Two Decades, Review of Economic Dynamics 2010) for the period from 2005 to 2013. The analysis will encompass different inequality measures (Gini, log of variances, percentile ratios).
