Work Package 16: Class-specific consumption levels and structures

In work package 16 “Class-specific consumption levels and structures” (Irene Becker, Empirical Distribution Research), results of an additional module of the distribution analysis (work package 10) will be analysed. Consumption patterns that are shown in work package 15 for socioeconomic household groups will be stratified by income groups. Consumption rates and structures will be compared. In addition, regarding the lower income bracket, it will be studied if durable goods may also be financed and to what extent the satisfaction of basic needs as well as social and cultural participation is possible. As empirical bases the scientific use file of the Income and Consumption Survey (EVS) 2008 and data of SOEP 2010 are available.
