Abstract "Die soziale Ungleichheit in Deutschland nimmt zu, auch der Mittelstand befürchtet den Abstieg. Doch in den verschiedenen Einkommensschichten hat sich die Wahrscheinlichkeit zu verarmen über die letzten 25 Jahre sehr unterschiedlich entwickelt. Die Verarmungsquote stieg in den unteren Einkommensschichten von ca. 10 auf ca. 15 Prozent, während sie für die mittlere und die obere Einkommensschicht gleichmäßig niedrig geblieben ist." (Autorenreferat)

"As social inequality increases, even the middle class fears downward mobility. However, over the last 25 years, the risk of falling into poverty has developed differently for high- and low-income groups. The poverty entry risk climbed from about 10 to about 15 per cent among the lower income group while it remained constantly low for the middle and upper income groups." (author's abstract)
