Abstract

This article is concerned with the development of wage inequality in the USA and Germany. Base data for the USA is the Panel Study of Income Dynamics, for Germany the Socio-Economic Panel. By reason of divergent economic development in East and West-Germany, both parts are examined separately. After a descriptive examination of base data the estimation of an advanced Mincerequation is performed. By applying quantile regression the development of wage disparity between and within population groups can be ascertained. In diesem Beitrag wird die Entwicklung der Lohnungleichheit in den USA und Deutschland betrachtet. Für Deutschland wird als Datengrundlage die harmonisierte Version des Sozioökonomischen Panels und für die USA die harmonisierte Version der Panel Study of Income Dynamics verwendet. Aufgrund der divergenten ökonomischen Situation in West- und Ostdeutschland werden diese getrennt voneinander betrachtet. Nach einer deskriptiven Betrachtung der verwendeten Datensätze wird die Schätzung einer erweiterten Mincergleichung durchgeführt. Durch die Anwendung der Quantilsregression lässt sich die Entwicklung der Lohnungleichheit zwischen und innerhalb von Bevölkerungsgruppen ermitteln.
