MyWealth-Trajectories

Trajectories of personal wealth accumulation and wealth inequalities in couples over time

 

This subproject deals with trajectories of personal wealth accumulation in couples over time beginning with their union formations. The central research questions are: How does personal wealth develop over the duration of unions? How does the accumulation differ from otherwise similar individuals in episodes of singlehood? How do inequalities between partners develop over the duration of unions? Which clusters of trajectories in wealth accumulation and wealth inequalities can be identified? What determines membership in these clusters? In an explorative manner it is also asked how these trajectories vary across countries. Using various longitudinal datasets, the empirical analysis describes trajectories of personal wealth and couple-level wealth inequalities.
