Life Chances and Social Inequality

Research perspectives

The focus "Life Chances and Social Inequality" analyses the chances for economic and social participation provided by employment and the welfare state as well as their interactions with the structures of social inequality and processes of individual and welfare state development. The investigations are generally based on empirical longitudinal surveys of quantitative and qualitative methodological approaches. In particular, the focus produces the Panelstudie Arbeitsmarkt und soziale Sicherung, PASS (panel study on labour market and social security) besides other datasets, some of which are also publicly accessible. This household survey enables comparative longitudinal analyses of recipients of basic income support and the general population.
