    Abstract

    In diesem Beitrag wird der relative Anteil von Selektions- gegenüber Kausaleffekten bei den Gesundheitsunterschieden zwischen Verheirateten und Ledigen untersucht. Mit den Daten des Sozio-ökonomischen Panel (SOEP) werden Mehrzustands-Sterbetafeln berechnet, um sowohl Wechsel zwischen Gesundheitszuständen als auch Wechsel zwischen den Familienständen simultan im Lebensverlauf zu bestimmen. Dabei zeigt sich, dass – entgegen den bislang vorliegenden Untersuchungen, die jedoch den Selektionseinfluss nicht kontrollieren – dem Protektionseinfluss und damit einer kausalen Wirkung der Ehe auf den Gesundheitszustand keine Bedeutung zukommt. Vielmehr lässt sich der Gesundheitsunterschied vollständig auf die Selektion der Gesünderen in die Ehe erklären.
