Regionale Lohnunterschiede in Deutschland


  • Joachim Ragnitz



Das durchschnittliche Lohnniveau in den einzelnen Regionen Deutschlands unterscheidet sich in teils beträchtlichem Maße. Dies gilt auch dann noch, wenn man regionale Preisniveauunterschiede berücksichtigt. Auffällig ist zudem, dass Ostdeutschland flächendeckend durch niedrigere Löhne gekennzeichnet ist. Es wird gezeigt, dass insbesondere die jeweilige Branchenstruktur und die Siedlungsstruktur wichtige Einflussfaktoren für das regionale Lohnniveau darstellen; darüber hinaus spielt aber auch ein spezifischer „Ost-Einfluss“ eine wesentliche Rolle, der bislang ein stärkeres Aufholen verhindert hat.
