    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar Comparing Survey Data and Administrative Records on Gross Earnings: Nonreporting, Misreporting, Survey-Mode, and Earnings Inequality

    The extent of earnings inequality is usually determined using survey data, but these data may not be accurate. Research indicates that some respondents are likely to avoid reporting their gross earnings and others are likely to misreport them. In addition, the format of the survey might affect the accuracy of responses to sensitive questions on issues such as earnings. Given these three possibilities, researchers’ conclusions might be biased. By comparing survey and administrative data, we looked for the nonreporting and misreporting biases suggested by the literature. We also investigated the mode of data collection as a source of nonreporting and misreporting bias. Finally, we analyzed the effects of nonreporting, misreporting, and the mode of data collection on conclusions on the degree of overall earnings inequality. The analyses drew on data from the German employee survey “Legitimation of Inequality Over the Life-Span” and linked administrative data from the Federal Employment Agency (N = 2,282). Using the administrative data as a benchmark, we found that respondents at the lower and upper end of the earnings distribution were more likely to not report or misreport their earnings. Interviewer presence led to higher nonreporting rates as well. Overall inequality was severely underestimated because of nonreporting whereas misreporting had little impact on conclusions on overall inequality.

    Workshop Workshop on Behavioral Welfare Economics

    The aim of this workshop on behavioral welfare economics is to make advances on welfare economics based on behavioral economics models. The plan is to develop ideas rather than to present finished work. Hence there will be discussion sessions on different topics that take about an hour and that will each be started by one or two 10-15 minute presentations. There will also be two short paper presentations.

    Cluster-Seminar Public Finances and Living Conditions Stricter Eligibility Criteria in Disability Insurance: Effects on Diagnoses Protection

    Since the 2001 reform of the disability pension in Germany, occupational invalidity does no longer qualify for a pension. While before the reform the incapability to work in the former job was sufficient for a pension claim, the new regulations require an incapability to work at all. Yet, cohorts born before 1961 have been exempted from the reform to protect their confidence in former legislation. This exogenous variation along birth cohorts allows us to estimate the causal reform effects on pension take-up rates and diagnoses composition using a Regression Discontinuity Design. Working with a 25% sample from the registers of the Statutory Pension Scheme, we show that take-up drops significantly. A disproportionally high share of newly non-eligible individuals suffers from musculoskeletal disorders.
