Der Einfluss unbeobachteter Heterogenität auf kompensatorische Lohndifferentiale und den Wert eines Statistischen Lebens: Eine mikroökonometrische Parallelanalyse mit IABS und SOEP

  • Schaffner, Sandra
  • Spengler, Hannes

Die Arbeit untersucht mittels IAB-Beschäftigtenstichprobe, Sozioökonomischem Panel und Informationen über tödliche Arbeitsunfälle die Existenz kompensatori- scher 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. € 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. € führen und damit auf eine Verzerrung der Querschnittsschätzungen (na- tional und international) hinweisen. Zusätzliche (Differenzen-)Schätzungen auf Ba- sis von Berufswechslern bestätigen die Panelergebnisse. Die ermittelten WSL kön- nen in Kosten-Nutzen-Analysen von Projekten zur Risikoreduktion in Gesundheits-, Umwelt- und Verkehrspolitik eingesetzt werden.
