Wolfgang Zapf was instrumental in the founding of the SOEP study in the early 1980s, together with colleagues in the fields of sociology and economics. He has had an enduring influence on the measurement concepts used in the SOEP, and his quality of life concept has become a become central to SOEP longitudinal study. When Hans-Jürgen Krupp left DIW Berlin in 1988, Wolfgang Zapf took on the responsibilities of interim director without question—despite his extensive responsibilities as President of the WZB Berlin Social Science Center—in characteristic solidarity with what was then the SOEP project group based at DIW Berlin. He went on to serve for many years as a member of the SOEP Advisory Board, providing advice and expertise to the panel project.

How to work with spell data http://www.diw.de/sixcms/detail.php?id=diw_01.c.581706.en Spell, duration or event history data are used frequently in the social sciences. Handling this kind of data can be cumbersome, especially when you want to supplement spell data with panel data or vice versa. Alternatively, you might want to combine two spell files or enrich spell data with information on events while keeping the spell structure of your data. To accomplish these tasks, we provide five do-files to facilitate the data management.

Inequality in Germany: decrease in gap for gross hourly wages since 2014, but monthly and annual wages remain on plateau http://www.diw.de/sixcms/detail.php?id=diw_01.c.579153.en Despite the booming German labor market, wage inequality is still a relevant issue. In the present study, the authors report on the changes in wages and their distribution between 1992 and 2016. In addition to real contractual gross hourly wages, we closely examined gross monthly and annual wages. Based on Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP) data, the results show that wage inequality rose significantly between 1992 and 2005, in particular with respect to monthly and annual wages. Since then inequality in monthly and annual wages has plateaued at its 2005 level. Inequality in hourly wages has decreased only since 2014, and between 2013 and 2016, average real gross hourly wages rose by five percent after a longer phase of stagnation. For the lowest ten percent of the population, they rose by 13 percent—a rate related to the implementation of sector-specific wages and the statutory minimum wage. However, these minimum wages obviously did not affect monthly and annual wages as anticipated.

Gross income gap has increased since reunification http://www.diw.de/sixcms/detail.php?id=diw_01.c.575256.en The top 10% of income earners in Germany earn almost as much as the middle 40% – the top 1%’s share of national income has increased from eight to 13 percent since 1995.

The share of national income belonging to the top 1% of income earners has grown significantly in Germany since the mid-1990s, while the share earned by the bottom 50% has significantly decreased. These are the main findings of a study by DIW Berlin economist Charlotte Bartels based on income tax data for Germany for the World Inequality Report.

Gert G. Wagner celebrates his 65th birthday, leaves position on DIW Berlin's Executive Board http://www.diw.de/sixcms/detail.php?id=diw_01.c.574488.en Gert G. Wagner, who served as a member of the German Institute for Economic Research's Executive Board from 2011 to 2017, will celebrate his 65th birthday on January 5. The economist and social scientist was the head of the Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP) research infrastructure at DIW Berlin from 1989 to 2011 and developed it into the largest and longest-running long-term study on social and economic conditions in Germany. Wagner is leaving his position as a member of DIW Berlin's Executive Board in January but will be remaining a Visiting Senior Research Fellow of the institute. He will shift the focus of his future research activities to the Max Planck Institute for Human Development (Max-Planck-Institut fuer Bildungsforschung), where he has been a Max Planck Fellow since 2008.

"Gert G. Wagner has been of great service to the SOEP and DIW Berlin," said Axel A. Weber, chairman of DIW Berlin's Board of Trustees. "Together with an outstanding staff, he made the SOEP into the excellent and world-renowned research infrastructure it is today. As a member of DIW Berlin's Executive Board, he was just as successful in taking on a large amount of responsibility for the entire institute."

Wagner stepped down from leading the SOEP in early 2011 to join DIW Berlin's Executive Board. Together with Cornelius Richter and Georg Weizsaecker, Wagner successfully led the institute through its evaluation by the Leibniz Association (Leibniz Gemeinschaft) as the chairperson of the Executive Board ("president"). After Marcel Fratzscher took over the position of president in February 2013, Wagner remained a member of DIW Berlin's Executive Board representing the SOEP. Stefan Liebig, who was named director of the SOEP, took over Wagner's position on the Executive Board effective January 1, 2018.

"Gert G. Wagner not only made a key contribution to DIW Berlin with his work with the SOEP, but he also laid important foundations for DIW Berlin's successful future by emphasizing the institute's scientific focus in 2011 and 2012. I'd like to thank him for our excellent work together over the past five years," said DIW Berlin president Marcel Fratzscher, who noted that, aside from Wagner, "Juergen Schupp also did an excellent job as director of the SOEP and provided new momentum. I'm happy that he will continue to manage the SOEP as vice director and devote more time to his research."

From 1989 to 2011, Gert G. Wagner was head of the SOEP, a long-term study that began in 1983 by the then-president of DIW Berlin, Hans-Juergen Krupp. Wagner and his colleagues developed the SOEP into one of the most important socio-scientific research infrastructures in the world. Immediately after the fall of the Berlin Wall, people from East Germany, as well as those who relocated from East to West Germany and those of German descent from former Eastern Bloc territories who came to Germany in the mid-1990s, could be included in the study. In 2003, Wagner successfully institutionalized the SOEP as a research infrastructure at DIW Berlin. Together with Juergen Schupp, who was the head of the SOEP from 2011 to 2017, Wagner ensured that the SOEP was continuously adapted to social changes, expanded to include psychological issues, and networked excellently, both nationally and internationally. Since 2016, the SOEP has also been collecting a representative sample of data from refugees.

Today, the SOEP enables cutting-edge research that is considering leading worldwide. Wagner's publications emphasize his significance in basic research as well as outreach activities: aside from 100 articles in peer-reviewed journals, he has authored over 100 DIW Wochenbericht reports and almost 500 newspaper articles.

"I'm happy to be leaving the SOEP in good hands with sociologist Stefan Liebig. Thanks to Juergen Schupp and his team, the SOEP is as good as ever and extremely well-suited to its role in forming the basis for the sound analysis of many socially, psychologically, and economically important issues," said Wagner. "In times of great uncertainty, science in general and data-based analysis in particular play a key role."

In 1997, Wagner became the first DIW Berlin employee (aside from the president) who, as a jointly appointed professor, also worked closely with a university, the Viadrina European University in Frankfurt (Oder), Germany. Since 2002, he has been a professor of empirical economics and economic policy at the Berlin University of Technology (TUB). He is also a Max Planck Fellow at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development in Berlin and a member of the German Academy of Science and Engineering (Deutschen Akademie der Technikwissenschaften, acatech).

Additionally, he is chairperson of The German Social Advisory Council (Sozialbeirat) and a member of the German Advisory Council for Consumer Affairs (Sachverstaendigenrates für Verbraucherpolitik). He was previously chairperson of the German Council for Social and Economic Data (Rat für Sozial- und Wirtschaftsdaten) and a member of the German Council of Science and Humanities (Wissenschaftsrat). In September 2007, Wagner was awarded the Knight's Cross of the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany.

On January 8, 2018, Wagner will be awarded an honorary doctorate degree in social sciences and economics (Dr. rer pol. h.c.) from the Faculty of Management, Economics, and Social Sciences at the University of Cologne. As part of the lecture series "Inequality and Redistribution," Wagner will also present his talk, "Does less inequality cost growth? On the importance of various objectives in the debate on inequality."

IAB-BAMF-SOEP Survey of Refugees in Germany: Revision of the Dataset http://www.diw.de/sixcms/detail.php?id=diw_01.c.574033.en The Institute of Employment Research (IAB), the Information Centre for Asylum and Migration of the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF-FZ), and the Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP) at the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW Berlin) are currently working together on a longitudinal survey of refugees. The survey research institute Kantar Public (formerly TNS Infratest) has been commissioned to carry out the interviews. Kantar Public performs routine checks to ensure the quality of the survey. In preparation for the next round of interviews, Kantar Public found that one interviewer had not conducted interviews according to the established procedures. Six percent of the total household interviews were affected.

To address this issue, the research institutes involved in the study asked an expert in survey research methodology who is not part of the project, Prof. Dr. Jörg-Peter Schräpler of Ruhr University Bochum, to evaluate the dataset for statistical anomalies. In cases where additional statistical anomalies were identified, the respondents were contacted again. All of these respondents confirmed that their interviews had been conducted properly. These comprehensive checks provided no indication that further irregularities had occurred in the process of conducting the survey.

Kantar Public is currently assessing its quality control procedures and will take the necessary steps to improve quality control in its fieldwork processes and organization. Users of data from the IAB-BAMF-SOEP Survey of Refugees have been informed, and a revised version of the dataset will be provided to them soon.

After rechecking the results of studies published thus far based on the survey data, we have determined that the basic conclusions of these studies still hold after the data revision. The deviations in the revised dataset are either within the margin of statistical error, or they result in only slight differences of a few percentage points compared to the previously released version of the data. Details on the revised results can be found on the IAB website.

The DIW publications affected by the data revision will be replaced with corrected versions in early 2018.

SOEP People: Five questions to Judith Niehues http://www.diw.de/sixcms/detail.php?id=diw_01.c.573258.en “Income Inequality, Inequality of Opportunity, and Redistribution” was the subject of economist Judith Niehues’ doctoral dissertation and has been a central focus of her research since then. Niehues earned her doctorate at the University of Cologne after completing undergraduate studies there and at San Diego State University in the United States. She is a Senior Economist at the Cologne Institute for Economic Research (IW Köln*), where she heads the Microdata and Method Development Research Group. In her research, she makes regular use of SOEP data to study inequality and perceptions of inequality within the population.

1. Much of your research deals with the middle class. What’s your most important finding on the middle class to date?

It was clear to me from the research on income distribution that Germany is a middle-class society. But in a data analysis, I found that the majority of Germans don’t believe that at all. Most Germans think that our society is shaped like a pyramid, with most people at the bottom. That surprised me. I was even more surprised to find out that more Americans than Germans believe they live in a middle-class society—despite the fact that the middle class is much smaller in the United States than in Germany.

2. Do Germans think the social situation here is worse than it actually is?

Yes. And there is also evidence that Germans are too pessimistic about how inequality in our society is changing over time. Eighty percent of Germans think the gap between rich and poor has widened in recent years. In fact, around 70 to 80 percent of the population of every country in the developed world has this perception, independent of what the actual development of inequality has been like.

3. How do these kinds of perceptions arise?

I always had the idea in the back of my mind that these perceptions might be driven by the mass media. And the SOEP offered a unique opportunity to test this idea. The SOEP data include information on the specific date respondents were interviewed. There are also media data that show what was being reported on in the media on what date. Our study found that when there is extensive reporting on inequality in the media, respondents are likely to report being less satisfied, for instance, with social justice in our country. This shows that media reporting can influence people’s subjective perceptions and concerns.

4. How important is it to you that your findings get out into the public?

It’s important to me to give people facts and clear up misconceptions. So bringing my findings out into the public sphere always plays a role in my work. And when I see that my findings are being picked up by the media and that they’re making it into the political discourse, I feel like I’m having at least a small influence on the public debate.

5. Is there anything else you’re as enthusiastic about as you are about research?

Yes—I really enjoy playing soccer and also watching it. It must be great to be a professional player. Not because of the hype around it, but playing soccer every day and getting paid for it sounds like a dream.

The SOEP vocational training program: A model for success Seventh cohort of trainees in market and social research (FAMS) started in September http://www.diw.de/sixcms/detail.php?id=diw_01.c.565061.en Since autumn of 2011, the SOEP has been offering in-house traineeships to students who are studying to be specialists in market and social research (Fachangestellte für Markt- und Sozialforschung, FAMS), a three-year degree program that is part of the German dual system of vocational training. Specialists in market and social research are responsible for organizational and operational tasks in diverse areas of empirical social research, for instance, in conducting surveys and other forms of data collection. The seventh cohort of FAMS students started in September: Martin Gerike from Berlin and Omar Alshafai from Damascus, Syria.

The two graduates from the first cohort, Janine Napjeraj and Florian Griese, were hired by the SOEP after graduating in summer 2014. They provide support to the SOEP research staff in survey management and on one project with outside funding. The two FAMS from the second and third cohorts, Marius Pahl and Carolin Stolpe, started university studies in business information technology and media information technology, respectively.
They both continued working for the SOEP as student assistants. Marvin Petrenz, who was part of the fourth cohort of FAMS, completed his FAMS degree in 2016. Since then he has been working successfully on several SOEP projects. Selin Kara and Stefan Zimmermann, who started in 2015 in the fifth cohort, are currently in the third year of the program. Philipp Kaminsky, who started last year in the sixth cohort, has just entered his second year of training.

FAMS trainer Knut Wenzig is enthusiastic about the program: “By the end of their training, FAMS can confidently carry out the full range of tasks of a research data infrastructure from questionnaire development, data preparation, and documentation
to international user support. The SOEP benefits greatly from their skills and reliability. And they benefit from working in an outstanding research environment.”

“As a Leibniz Association research infrastructure, we started early not only in fostering young researchers but also in expanding opportunities for vocational training”, said SOEP Director Jürgen Schupp. He is convinced that an outstanding research infrastructure like the SOEP needs highly skilled specialists in market and social research who do sophisticated research-oriented work. “Our two new FAMS trainees are an ideal complement to our team. Our users are also getting to know and appreciate them for the competent and reliable services they provide as part of the SOEP”.
