Het effect van de Algemene Ouderdomswet op de verdeling van het levensduurinkomen: een nadere analyse via microsimulatie


  • Nelissen,J. H. M.




This paper looks at the impact of the Dutch General Old Age Pensions Act on the distribution of lifetime wage income, using a dynamic cross-sectional microsimulation model. Both vertical and horizontal redistributional effects are considered. It appears that the lifetime redistribution is considerably smaller than the redistribution measured on the basis of a period approach. The horizontal lifetime redistribution is more important than the vertical one, but this effect also is rather limited, in particular due to the increasing contribution rates and the regressive nature of the contribution levying.
