dc.description.abstractUsing register data from the IAB employment sample, this paper studies thewage structure in the German labor market throughout the years 1992{2001. Wage dispersion has generally been rising. The increase was more pronounced in East Germanyand occurred predominantly in the lower part of the wage distribution for women and inthe upper part for men. Censored quantile wage regressions reveal diverse age and skillpatterns. Applying Machado/Mata (2005)-type decompositions I conclude that differences in the composition of the work force only had a small impact on the observed wagedifferentials between East and West Germany, but changes in the characteristics capturedbetter parts of the observed wage changes over time.en_US
