Determinants of Attitudes to Income Redistribution¶

Short Description: We introduce two questions measuring attitudes towards income redistribution and two questions on the beliefs of the causes of low and high income. Together with existing SOEP questions, these allow estimating the relative importance of self-interest, fairness considerations, and various other factors in explaining attitudes towards redistribution.
