Abstract

Verschiedene Faktoren bewirken eine Zunahme der Altersarmut in Deutschland, insbesondere in Ostdeutschland. Mit Daten des Sozio-oekonomischen Panel (SOEP) untersuchen wir Ursachen und Ausmaß der Altersarmut in Deutschland. Wir beginnen mit einer Querschnittsregression zur Bestimmung der Einflussfaktoren der Alterseinkommen. Im zweiten Schritt nehmen wir eine Projektion der Einkommen der 50- bis 55-Jährigen des Jahres 2008 für das Jahr 2023 vor. Dabei berücksichtigen wir sämtliche Einkommensarten, einschließlich verschiedener Formen von Kapitaleinkünften und des Wohnwerts selbst genutzten Wohneigentums. Es zeigt sich, dass, verglichen mit der heutigen alten Generation, vor allem in Ostdeutschland das Armutsrisiko steigt. Dies ist auf den Wandel der Erwerbsbiografien in der Folge der deutschen Vereinigung zurückzuführen.
