Population Europe Resource Finder and Archive (Perfar)

Mitarbeiter in diesem Projekt:

Axel Börsch-Supan and Ulrich Becker with Marlene Haupt and Eva-Maria Hohnerlein Almost all analyses of social law and social policy at require precise institutional data such as the applicable statutory retirement ages by year, cohort, industry and gender; actuarial adjustment factors for early retirement; tax rates for labor and capital income; subsidy and incentive schemes for old-age saving; maternity leave provisions; unemployment and disability insurance rules; and many more examples. This infrastructure project collects and assembles such data from various sources as we need them in our analytical projects in a large data base which is maintained by Population Europe, an international network for demographic and related research co-sponsored by the Max Planck Society. The data base is web based with open access for all researchers. It includes qualitative descriptions provided by the Social Law Department as well as quantitative indicators provided by the Social Policy Department.
