Der biologische Lebensstandard in den neuen und alten Bundesländern


  • John Komlos
  • Peter Kriwy


Biologische Prozesse werden auch von ökonomischen Rahmenbedingungen beeinflusst. Sozialpolitik, medizinische Versorgung, Lebensumstände und Ernährung haben eine Wirkung auf Gesundheit, Körpergröße und somit allgemein auf Wohlfahrt. Prof. John Komlos, Institut für Volkswirtschaftslehre an der Universität München, und Peter Kriwy, Institut für Soziologie an der Universität München, untersuchen anhand der Daten des Bundesgesundheitssurvey die Entwicklung der durchschnittlichen Körpergröße der Bevölkerung in Deutschland vor und nach der Wiedervereinigung.
