In der Oktoberausgabe 2015 veröffentlichte der Wirtschaftsdienst einen Aufsatz zu "Einkommensverteilung und gesamtwirtschaftliche Entwicklung in Deutschland: Spitzeneinkommen - ein Missing-Link". Die Autoren des vorliegenden Beitrags setzen sich kritisch damit auseinander, im Anschluss erläutern Moritz Drechsel-Grau, Andreas Peichl und Kai Daniel Schmid ihren Standpunkt in einer Erwiderung.
Abstract (Translated): 
Jan Goebel and Carsten Schröder reply to the proposal of Andreas Peichl et al. to combine the Taxpayer Panel with the German Socio-economic Panel. They concede that both measures help to understand the development of income distribution. But problems may occur because the different concepts are only partially congruent. Peichl et al. also think that complementary analyses of survey data and administrative data offer a better understanding of the evolution of income distribution in Germany, as these provide different information. They argue that mutual cross-checking of both kinds of data as well as plausibility considerations in the macroeconomic context can partly offset imperfect congruency when assessing inequality trends. Linking both kinds of data will further reduce uncertainty about the evolution of income distribution and improve research conditions and policy advice in Germany.
