For the first time we analyze a large data set from the German public pension scheme on women who died between 1994 and 2005, employing both non-parametric and parametric methods. We find that the relationship between earnings and life expectancy is similar for women and men: Among women who contributed at least for 25 years, women at the 90th percentile of the income distribution can expect to live 3 years longer than women at the 10th percentile.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:creator>Marcus, Jan</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Marcus, Jan</dc:contributor> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:contributor>Breyer, Friedrich</dc:contributor> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2015-02-04T10:00:11Z</dc:date> <dcterms:issued>2011</dcterms:issued> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:title>Income and Longevity Revisited : Do High-earning Women Live Longer?</dcterms:title> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
