Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen The Effect of Pension Reforms on Savings Behavior

Many OECD countries are currently undergoing reforms of their statutory pension schemes. In theory, a decrease of pension generosity can have a positive or negative effect on private savings - depending on the corresponding level of employment effects. Thus, it is an empirical question to determine the sign of the effect. A particular reform of the German Statutory Pension Scheme lifted the early retirement age (ERA) of women. The reform was implemented along birth cohorts, allowing for an intuitive identification strategy and causal interpretation of effects.
While previous studies found positive effects of other generosity decreasing pension reforms on private savings, this is the first study isolating the effect of an increase of the ERA on savings. An upward-shift of the ERA by 3 to 5 years has a statistically and economically significant negative effect on private monthly savings of single women. The effects in the subsample of couples are insignificant.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen The Value of Partial Retirement for Labor Supply, Public Balances and Income Inequality - Evidence from a Structural Analysis

    This paper develops a structural dynamic retirement model to investigate effects and corresponding underlying mechanisms of a partial retirement program in Germany on labor supply, fiscal balances and the pension income distribution. The structural approach  allows to disentangle the two counteracting mechanisms that drive the employment effects of partial retirement: 1) the crowd-out from full-time employment, and 2) the movement from early retirement or unemployment to partial retirement. It also allows to investigate the isolated role of financial compensations in a partial retirement program. The analysis is based on a unique administrative dataset that collects biographical information on full employment histories and combines information on partial retirement take-up with information on individual pension levels. For this purpose I subsequently perform three counterfactual policy simulations: 1) full access to partial retirement 2) an increase of the normal retirement age from 65 to 67, and 3) Adding wage and pension compensations to partial retirement. The results show negative employment effects but potentially positive fiscal consequences as well as a reduction in pension income inequality when partial retirement is introduced. Wage and pension compensations in partial retirement do not substantially affect employment behavior but pension compensations proof necessary to avoid an increased risk of old-age poverty when access to partial retirement is unrestricted.

    Veranstaltung Auswirkungen der G8-Schulreform: Eine interdisziplinäre Perspektive

    Die Verkürzung der Schulzeit bis zum Abitur („G8-Reform“) ist eine der am stärksten umstrittenen Bildungsreformen der letzten Jahrzehnte. Nachdem in den ersten Jahren des neuen Jahrtausends fast alle Bundesländer von einer 13-jährigen (G9) zu einer 12-jährigen Schulzeit (G8) bis zum Abitur gewechselt sind, haben inzwischen erste Bundesländer eine Rückkehr zur 13-jährigen Schulzeit verkündet bzw. es Gymnasien freigestellt, ihre SchülerInnen in 12 oder 13 Jahren zum Abitur zu führen. Diese Entscheidungen wurden zu einer Zeit getroffen, als noch wenige belastbare empirische Befunde zur Wirkung der G8-Reform vorlagen.

    Ziel der Tagung ist es, „G8-ForscherInnen“ zusammenzubringen, und eine Plattform für den Austausch von Wissenschaft, Politik, Wirtschaft und Praxis zu schaffen. Zunächst soll der aktuelle Forschungsstand zu den Auswirkungen der G8-Reform ermittelt und Forschungslücken identifiziert werden, um anschließend die Forschungsergebnisse vor dem Hintergrund der Erfahrungen in Politik, Wirtschaft und Praxis zu diskutieren.
    Die an der Tagung teilnehmen G8-BildungsforscherInnen vertreten mehrere Disziplinen, wie Ökonomie, Soziologie, Psychologie und Erziehungswissenschaften. Im Mittelpunkt der Veranstaltung steht zum einen der disziplinenübergreifende Austausch über unterschiedliche Aspekte und Methoden und die damit langfristig verbundene interdisziplinäre Gestaltung der Bildungsforschung, und zum anderen der Austausch zwischen Wissenschaft und Praxis.

    Die Tagung wird vom DIW Berlin und dem Institut für Arbeitsmarkt- und Berufsforschung (IAB, Nürnberg) organisiert und vom College for Interdisciplinary Education Research (CIDER) sowie vom Berlin Economics Research Associates (BERA)-Netzwerk gefördert.

    Workshop International conference on the quality of early childhood education and care

    In recent years, early childhood education and care (ECEC) services have received increasing attention from researches and policy makers in many OECD countries. A growing body of interdisciplinary literature shows that attendance of ECEC services of higher quality is consistently positively associated with children’s cognitive and socio-emotional development. This is an important finding. However, the results differ by the way quality is approached and measured. In addition, ECEC services also address parents and families as a whole. To-date, less evidence exists how ECEC quality may matter to outcomes other than child development, including maternal employment and parents’ subjective wellbeing. This workshop aims to present scholarship from different disciplines which investigates predictors and consequences of various aspects of ECEC quality using a variety of data sets.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Evaluating the Labor Market Effects of Compulsory Military Service in Germany

    Between 1956 and 2011 more than 12.4 million German men had to perform some form of compulsory national service, either military or civil. However, little is known about the impacts of this conscription system on draftees in Germany. I present new evidence on the long-run effects of mandatory military service on wages of West-German men born between 1960 and 1970 using detailed longitudinal data.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Paid parental leave and child development: Evidence from the 2007 German parental benefit reform and administrative data

    This paper examines the effects of a substantial change in publicly funded paid parental leave in Germany on child development and socio-economic development gaps at age 6. For children born before January 1, 2007, parental leave benefits were means-tested and paid for up to 24 months after childbirth.  Thereafter, parental leave benefits were earnings-related and only paid for up to 14 months. Higher-income households benefited more from the reform than low-income households. We study the reform effects on children's language skills, motor skills, socio-emotional stability, and school readiness using administrative data from mandatory school entrance examinations. To estimate causal reform effects on child development, we use a difference-in-differences design which exploits the eligibility rule based on children's birthdate. We find no impact of the reform on child development and socio-economic development gaps. The effects are precisely estimated and robust to various model specifications and sample definitions. Our results suggest that  such substantial changes in parental leave benefits are unlikely to have a substantial impact on children's development.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Job risk, fertility, and female labor supply

    Recent research from the demographic and economic literature suggests a strong link between labor market uncertainty and fertility. Taking this relationship into account, I take a new look at parental leave policies in Germany. Using a dynamic structural life-cycle model of female labor supply and fertility, I will evaluate the impact of these policies under job risks and with fixed-term contracts. Estimation is work in progress.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Distributional price effects of rent controls in Berlin

    An enormous increase of initial rents in many German cities over the last decade has prompted the current grand coalition to implement a new rent control called "Mietpreisbremse" in 2015 (literally a brake on rental prices). This reform aims to stop exploding rents and to provide particularly more affordable rental housing in the lower and medium rental price segment. Since then, rental prices of re-lettings are capped at a local rental index in declared areas. As an exception, newly built ats or those that have been reconstructed extensively are not affected by the reform and landlords may always uphold the rent paid by previous tenant. I apply a classical difference-in-difference strategy and a new changes-in-changes model including covariates in order to analyze both average and distributional price effects of the intervention in Berlin. The basis for empirical results is data on newly offered rental prices from 2012 to 2016 that is also enhanced with the local rental index and previous rents. Thereby, I can define the range of effects one could reasonably expect beforehand. Results indicate that the reform indeed lowered initial rents temporarily. In contrast to the reforms intention, however, significant effects are found only in the upper price segment. The effects also fall short of anticipated expectation and fade out too fast. Meanwhile, newly offered rental prices even outrun the pre-reform level, which highlights the lack of enforcement supplementary. I will therefore argue that the reform so far has failed to meet the intended objective and is poorly targeted.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Top of the Class: the Importance of Ordinal Rank

    This paper establishes a new fact about educational production: ordinal academic rank during primary school has long-run impacts on later achievement that are independent from underlying ability. Using data on the universe of English school students, we examine a setting in which the same baseline score on a national standardized test can correspond to different ranks among students situated in different primary school classes, where we calculate ranks using this baseline score. Institutional factors cause students to be re-assigned to a new set of secondary school peers and teachers that are unaware of the student’s prior ranking. We find large and significant positive effects on test scores and subject choices during secondary school from experiencing a high primary school rank, conditional on the underlying primary baseline score. The effects are especially large for boys, contributing to an observed gender gap in end-of-high school STEM subject choices. Merged survey data suggest that the development of confidence is a likely mechanism.
