    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Employment Interruptions and Job Satisfaction of Mothers at the Return to Work: Evidence from a Parental Leave Reform in Germany

    Previous research has investigated how career breaks of mothers after giving birth are associated with labour market outcomes, and found generally a negative association (i.e. motherhood penalty). However, there is no empirical evidence regarding job satisfaction. This is regrettable because job satisfaction measures a dimension of workplace well-being that cannot be captured by objective measures. In this paper I exploit the 2007 parental leave reform (Elterngeld) in Germany. Under the new regime the maximum length of paid leave is set at 14 months for all women, replacing a means tested system that allowed paid leaves of 12 or 24 months for low income mothers only. I apply a sharp regression discontinuity design to a sample of mothers from the German Socio Economic Panel. Preliminary results indicate that overall the reform had a positive effect on job satisfaction of mothers. Subgroup analysis shows that the overall positive effect might be driven by high-income mothers who under the previous means tested regime were not eligible for any paid leave.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen The Role of Time Preferences in Educational Decision Making

    We evaluate the role of time preferences in educational decision making, when deviating from the standard-neoclassical assumption of exponential discounting. Based on a dynamic structural life-cycle model we analyse the importance of the discount factor for policy simulations. This is done by considering two relevant policies: (1.) a change in the state grant for students (BaföG) as a way to affect short-run benefits while at school and (2.) a change in progressive taxation as a way to affect long-run benefits of schooling since labour income generally increases with additional years of schooling.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Peer Effects in Labor Supply Decisions of Mothers with Young Children

    Social and economic policies are likely to affect individuals not only by the change in financial incentives, but also by a change in the behavior of their social or work environment. It is our goal to determine social interaction effects in the context of employment behavior in Germany. In particular, we analyze whether the labor supply decisions of mothers with young children depend on the decisions made by their coworkers. The identification of social interaction effects bears various challenges that need to be overcome by the design of the empirical strategy. To this end we follow a reduced-form approach exploiting quasi-random variation in the costs of parental leave induced by the introduction of the new Elterngeld in 2007. Administrative linked employer-employee panel data enables us to assign a peer group to each individual and provides us with individual employment histories of all individuals in these social groups. This data set, combined with microeconometric and quasi-experimental methods, allows us to overcome the challenges associated with the identification and determine existence and magnitude of social interaction effects in employment decisions.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Job Search Expectations

    We introduce subjective expectations about the labour market into a job search model. We show how biases in expectations over the wage distribution affect optimal search intensity and the duration of unemployment. Optimistic individuals search more but reject more offers, with an ambiguous effect on unemployment duration. Based on extensive survey data from Germany, we confirm previous evidence that the unemployed are overly optimistic. We show how the simple search model with subjective wage expectations can be empirically estimated using panel data including information on expectations. Estimation is work in progress.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen The German child-care pension benefit and household savings

    In this paper, I estimate the impact of the German child-care pension benefit (Kindererziehungszeiten) on household savings, exploiting the pension reform 1992 as a natural experiment based on the Income and Expenditure Survey (EVS). The child-care pension benefits are designed as a compensation for employment interruptions due to child-birth and they increase a mother’s pension wealth. In principle, this implies negative incentives for private savings. However, the preliminary results indicate that household savings are not affected by the higher generosity of child-care pension benefits.

    BeNA - Seminar für Arbeitsmarktforschung The Economics of Educational Achievement

    On March 10 and 11, Prof. Ludger Woessmann will hold four lectures as part of the 2015 Lecture Series of the Berlin Network of Labor Market Research (BeNA).

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Preference for College and Educational Inequality: Do Students Lack Information - Evidence from a Field Experiment

    In Germany students from a non-academic family background are still underrepresented in universities. Even though access to higher education has increased, students from non-academic family backgrounds are still twenty percentage points less likely to enroll in university compared to their peers from academic backgrounds. Since in Germany no tuition fees need to be paid, financial constraints are less likely to explain this educational inequality. Recent evidence suggests that students’ choice against university education is based on incomplete information. Using data from a randomized controlled trial this paper examines whether improving the level of information reduces differences in students’ intention to study. For students from non-academic family backgrounds we find that provision of information increased their preference for university education. Our results suggest that providing information may be a suitable policy tool to reduce educational inequality at the transition to tertiary education.
