Abstract

Even five years after the German reunification, beside the microcensus there is only one databasis in two parts that allows to analyse the structure of all self-employed professionals and their offices and practices in East and West Germany. In a first step, this paper presents a statistic - Berufstätigenerhebung - that allows to analyse the structure of liberal professions in the German Democratic Republic. In 1990, the year of the German reunification, the Eastgerman-statistic was performed a last time and in a way that allows comparison with the West German statistic 'Arbeitsstättenzählung' that was performed the last time in 1987. In the second part of the paper this 'Arbeitsstättenzählung' - another totalstatistic - is presented that was worked out in 1987 and which covers the Federal Republic of Germany including West-Berlin. In a final step, the structure of the professionals is compared in East und West Germany. The figures show, that the professional sector in East Germany was still relatively small in absolute and total numbers compared with that of West Germany.
