This annual award is to recognize outstanding scientific projects that use data from official statistics. In her thesis titled “Gender-specific retirement saving behavior. Evidence from the German Tax Payer Panel”. Christina studied gender-specific saving responses to the introduction of unisex-tariffs in the context of German private pensions (“Riester-Rente”). Specifically, she analyzed whether men were less inclined to sign private pension contracts after the unisex-reform. The empirical analysis was based on tax return data from the German Taxpayer Panel. Cheers to you, Christina! We are celebrating with you!
