Erwerbsunfähigkeit: Leistungsempfänger


  • Wolfgang Ochel


Leistungen an Erwerbsunfähige kommt in einigen Ländern eine große Bedeutung zu, so beispielsweise in Polen, wo im Jahre 1999 mehr als 12% der Personen im erwerbsfähigen Alter öffentliche Leistungen wegen Erwerbsunfähigkeit erhielten. In Norwegen, den Niederlanden, Schweden und Dänemark lag der Anteil der Empfänger von derartigen Leistungen zwischen 9,2 und 7,7%, in Deutschland betrug dieser Anteil 4,1%. Erwerbsunfähigkeit dient teilweise als Substitut für Arbeitslosigkeit: Erwerbsunfähige Personen mindern die Erwerbspersonenzahl und damit die Zahl der Arbeitslosen.
