The gendered lifecycle - findings from National Transfer Accounts

Fanny Kluge, Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research

This paper focuses on gender differences in the individual economic lifecycle and how they translate into resource reallocation between men and women and across ages in the German welfare state. For historical reasons, Germany is a very interesting case to study how different institutional arrangements during the decades of separation shaped the lifecycle of men and women in the East and West.
