Winds of change: Work arrangements in Germany

Availability

Abstract

"During the last two decades we observe significant changes in the patterns of employment in Germany. Non-standard work arrangements such as agency work, fixed-term contracts and part-time employment gain in importance. By using data from the German labor force survey we examine what factors may drive the observed development. Our analyses show that the shifts towards service and female employment only explain parts of the development. The interplay of institutional and behavioral changes can be seen as the major source of changes in the patterns of work arrangements." (Author's abstract, IAB-Doku) ((en))
