Analysis of educational outcomes in germany: another way to divide berlin?: the background of the education in the city in times of the Wall

Urzay Gómez, Sergi
This study aims to show the educational differences resulting from the powerful division that suffered the city of Berlin until the year 1989, when the wall that separates the city in two was destroyed, from the citizens that lived at that time. However, what the follow pages try to do, is to see if the fact of living in the capitalist sector or Federal Republic of Germany (Bundesrepublik Deutschland) or the communist sector also known as German Democratic Republic (Deutsche Demokatische Republik), influenced the decision of individuals in terms of education. That is, if the fact of living in one sector or another, meant a greater or lesser degree of studies obtained by their inhabitants. It has also proven the post-education period of the individuals, observing when they enter the work environment. In addition, a second part of this study correlates the education variable with socioeconomic variables to see if they also have an important effect when individuals choose. We do all of this always separating individuals by the sector they receive education and by gender. To carry out this study we used the database provided by the G-SOEP (German Socio-Economic Panel) ​
