Abstract

Dieser Aufsatz liefert eine kritische Zusammenfassung und Beschreibung der Evaluationsstudien zu den Branchenmindestlöhnen in Deutschland, wobei der Schwerpunkt auf den ökonometrischen Kausalanalysen liegt. Die Evaluation der Branchenmindestlöhne ist ein wichtiges und erfolgreiches Beispiel für eine stärkere Evidenzbasierung derWirtschaftspolitik. Allen Evaluationsstudien gemein ist die Schwierigkeit der Identifikation der tatsächlich vom Mindestlohn betroffenen Beschäftigten in den jeweiligen Branchen. Die identifizierenden Annahmen und die Umsetzung des verwendeten Differenz-von-Differenzen-Ansatzes (DvD-Ansatz) sowie dieWahl der Kontrollgruppen werden kritisch diskutiert und es werden alternative Ansätze aufgezeigt. In vielen Fällen hätten die Variation der geschätzten Effekte und die Eignung einer Kontrollgruppe stärker diskutiert und eine Abschätzung der Verzerrung in den geschätzten Effekten vorgenommen werden sollen.
