Abstract

Der Diskussion um neue Arbeitszeitarrangements und flexible Arbeitszeiten fehlt bislang die empirische Grundlage auf der Basis von personenbezogenen Mikrodaten. Gegenstand unserer Studie Arbeit ist es, Abweichungen vom Normalarbeitstag in zwei Dimensionen zu untersuchen: zum einen in der zeitlichen Lage, zum anderen in der Frage, ob sich ein Arbeitstag mehrere, durch längere Pausen unterbrochene Perioden der Arbeit unterteilt. Dazu wird neben deskriptiven Ergebnissen der sozioökonomischen Charakteristika einzelner Arbeitszeitmuster auch ein Multinomiales Logit –Modell zur Erklärung der Wahl eines Arbeitszeitarrangements herangezogen. Unter Verwendung der beiden Zeitbudgeterhebungen des Statistischen Bundesamtes aus den Jahren 1991/92 und 2001/02 wird die Entwicklung von Mustern der Erwerbsarbeitszeit dargestellt. Dabei stellt sich heraus, dass für den Zeitraum zwischen den Untersuchungen der Normalarbeitstag einen erheblichen Rückgang im Anteil an den beobachteten Arbeitstagen aufweist. Gleichzeitig ändern sich die sozio-ökonomischen Strukturmerkmale der Arrangements und die Gründe für die Wahl eines Typs von Arbeitszeit. Weniger als noch zehn Jahre zuvor können z.B. pekuniäre Anreize wie der Lohn oder das restliche Haushaltseinkommen die Entscheidung für ein Arrangement erklären.
