Abstract

Der vorliegende Beitrag zeigt die Möglichkeiten und Grenzen eines Versuchs, sechs Querschnitte der Einkommens- und Verbrauchsstichprobe (1978 bis 2003) intertemporal vergleichbar aufzubereiten. Insbesondere werden die Effekte eines Bruchs in der Erhebungsmethode auf die in den Querschnitten verzeichneten Ausgabenvariablen untersucht: Während die Daten in den Ausgabenvariablen der Querschnitte 1978 bis 1993 auf Jahresangaben der Befragten beruhen, dienen seit 1998 Quartalsangaben als Datengrundlage. Wir zeigen, dass diese Verkürzung der Befragungsperiode gerade bei unregelmäßig erworbenen dauerhaften Konsumgütern die intertemporale Vergleichbarkeit der Ausgabenvariablen einschränken kann. Aufbauend auf unseren Befunden schlagen wir verschiedene Möglichkeiten zur Harmonisierung vor und überprüfen deren Eignung. Copyright Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2013
