Abstract

Die Arbeit untersucht mittels IAB-Beschäftigtenstichprobe, Sozioökonomischem Panel und Informationen über tödliche Arbeitsunfälle die Existenz kompensatorischer Lohndifferentiale zur Bestimmung desWertes eines statistischen Lebens (WSL) in Deutschland. Querschnittsregressionen auf Basis aller Erwerbstätigen ergeben mit 7,4 (IABS) bzw.3,5 (SOEP) Mio. EUR WSL-Schätzungen in der Größenordnung von querschnittsbasierten US-Studien. Zur Berücksichtigung individueller Heterogenität werden Panelregressionen durchgeführt, die zu einem geringeren WSL (3,0 bzw. 2,3 Mio. EUR) führen und damit auf eine Verzerrung der Querschnittsschätzungen (national und international) hinweisen. Zusätzliche(Differenzen-)Schätzungen auf Basis von Berufswechslern bestätigen die Panelergebnisse. Die ermittelten WSL können in Kosten-Nutzen-Analysen von staatlichen Projekten zur Reduktion von Todesrisiken in Gesundheits-, Verbraucherschutz-, Umwelt-, Verkehrs- und Kriminalpolitik eingesetzt werden.
