The issue of inequality has been receiving more and more attention in public and media debates. This was especially the case in the run up to the 2017 Bundestag elections, when academic studies and reports in the media drew a gloomy picture of how incomes and inequality were developing in Germany
Problems of economic growth and political polarisation in a number of developed economies are increasingly being blamed on inequality in distribution. Over the past decade this has stimulated analysis of macroeconomic income distribution.
The income prospects of young people in Germany depend to a large extent on their level of education. 31.5 per cent of those without a vocational qualification are in the lowest quintile of income distribution, while the figure for university graduates is only 7.4 per cent.
