Always Poor or Never Poor and Nothing in Between? Duration of Child Poverty in Germany

Michael Fertig and Marcus Tamm ()

German Economic Review, 2010, vol. 11, issue 2, 150-168

Abstract: This paper analyses the duration of child poverty in Germany. Observing the entire income history from the individuals’ birth to their coming of age at age 18, we are able to analyse dynamics in and out of poverty for the entire population of children, whether they become poor at least once or not. Using duration models, we find that household composition, most importantly single parenthood, and the labour market status as well as level of education of the household head are the main driving forces behind exit from and re-entry into poverty and thus determine the (long-term) experience of poverty.
