Preliminary research for the second evaluation round "Minimum Wages" – improvement and extension of evaluation methods

Preliminary research for the second evaluation round "Minimum Wages" – improvement and extension of evaluation methods

Starting from the first evaluation of sector-specific minimum wages that had been initiated by the Federal Ministry of Labour in 2010, the aim of the project is to examine alternative methods for the evaluation of minimum wages in Germany. To do so, we first systematize the evaluation approaches that have been adopted in the first evaluation round. In a second step, we identify alternative approaches to evaluate the introduction of sector-specific minimum wages in Germany. For this purpose, we plan to conduct a structured review of alternative approaches that go beyond the difference-in-difference methods used in the first evaluation. Finally, we assess the applicability of alternative methods with respect to the specific institutional context in Germany.
