Abstract or Table of Contents

As a new approach we study individual wage compensations due to income risks measured by the variance and skewness of the wage distributions in different occupational groups. Using German administrative panel data and estimating a fixed effects model we confirm the expected positive effect of the variance and the negative effect of the skewness on individual wages.
