"Arbeitsplatzausstattung" und "Arbeitsplatzlücke" nach Geschlechtern in Ost- und Westdeutschland [0.15 mb]

This is caused not only by problems concerning the production structure, but also by the significantly higher partizipation rate of women in the labor market. Reasons are the traditional behaviour of East German woman and compared with West Germany the considerably lower household income
