Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Stop Smoking, Your Paycheck Will Thank You! Wage Effects from Smoking Cessation

Silke Anger (DIW Berlin / SOEP) 

A growing body of literature has investigated the wage penalty attached to smoking. Little research, in contrast, has been done on the wage effects of smoking cessation. Using survey panel data from Germany, we study the relative earnings of smokers and former smokers over an extended period of time. We control for selection into smoking by imposing smoking initiation as the common initial condition and exclusively focusing on ever smokers, i.e. smokers and former smokers. Although we do not find evidence for an average wage premium of smoking cessation, our estimates point to heterogeneous causal effects. Individuals who did not smoke very long or who quit many years ago do appear to benefit in their earnings from quitting smoking. The prospect of a higher paycheck for short-time smokers and long-term quitters provides an additional incentive to smokers to quit smoking, an argument health authorities may want to utilize in public smoking cessation campaigns.

Does job loss make you smoke and gain weight?

Jan Marcus (DIW Berlin / SOEP) 

This paper estimates the effect of involuntary job loss on smoking behavior and body weight. For this purpose, I apply a regression-adjusted semiparametric difference-in-difference matching strategy. This strategy is robust against selection on observables and against selection on unobservables with time invariant effects. I find smoker and nonsmoker reacting to job loss with changing health behaviors. Former nonsmoker are more likely to start smoking, while smoker tend to increase body weight but do not intensify smoking. These findings are robust over various matching specifications and different choices of the conditioning variables. Further analyses indicate treatment effect heterogeneity, with particular strong effects for young individuals, migrants and the low educated.

The dynamics of single motherhood and work life histories of women in Britain and West Germany

Hannah Zagel (University of Edinburgh) 

The labour market (in)activity of women in single motherhood situations is a prominent issue across European countries. In order to understand women's employment patterns it has been suggested to focus on timing in the life course rather than on women's categorisation as either workers or mothers (e.g. Lewis 2006). This paper argues that, additionally, the temporal and institutional embeddedness of single motherhood has to be considered. Drawing on theories of stratification in the life course, a conceptual model is suggested, which is based on the temporal dimensions of timing and duration of single motherhood. In order to explore the relationships, individual work-family life sequences of women with single motherhood experience in Britain and West Germany are compared. Sequence analysis is applied to longitudinal survey data from the German Socio-Economic Panel and the British Household Panel Survey. Data from the time period between 1992 and 2009 are used. The theoretical model implies that, while the particular family situation still distinctly influences women's work lives, this interrelation cannot be understood without considering the temporal framework in which it unfolds. It is argued that the timing of single motherhood as well as its duration are associated with the opportunities for women to acquire resources that can be used in the labour market. Furthermore, the meaning of timing and duration for activity patterns appears to differ between Germany and Britain. Hence, in the search for policy solutions to address the needs of women in a single motherhood situation it may be instructive to regard the interplay between temporal and institutional factors.

Statistisches Matching von administrativen und Erhebungsdaten - Eine Anwendung auf die Analyse von Vermögensungleichheit

Anika Rasner & Markus M. Grabka (SOEP)
joint with Joachim R. Frick (SOEP & TU Berlin)

Using population representative survey data from the German Socio-Economic Panel and administrative pension records from the Statutory Pension Insurance, the authors compare four statistical matching and imputation techniques to complement survey information on net worth with social security wealth (SSW) information from the administrative records. The unique properties of the linked data allow for a straight control of the quality of matches under each technique. Based on various evaluation criteria, Mahalanobis distance matching performs best. Exploiting the advantages of the newly assembled data, the authors include SSW in a wealth inequality analysis. Despite its quantitative relevance, SSW has been thus far omitted from such analyses, because of the lack of adequate micro data. The inclusion of SSW doubles the level of net worth and decreases inequality by almost 25 percent. Moreover, the results reveal striking differences along occupational lines.

Trick or treat? – Maternal job loss and children's non-cognitive skills

Frauke Peter (SOEP)

Research on maternal employment decision and its effect on children's abilities have so far produced mixed results. This indicates that the mere association of maternal employment and child outcomes might be spurious and depending on childcare settings and other aspects of mothers' selection into employment, which in turn might also affect child outcome measures. By propensity score matching we first define mother's probability of working and in a second step we analyze involuntary job loss and its influence on children's non-cognitive skills. Research on human capital formation distinguishes between cognitive and non-cognitive skills whereby noncognitive skills have received less attention in empirical work. Using the German Socio-Economic Panel Study (SOEP), we estimate maternal job loss and its effect for preschool children aged five/six and for adolescents aged seventeen. Our analyses so far show that children whose mothers experience an exogenous job loss are more likely to have socioemotional problems and are less likely to believe in self-determination in life.

Spite and cognitive skills in preschoolers

Elisabeth Bügelmayer (SOEP and FU Berlin)
C. Katharina Spieß (SOEP and FU Berlin)

Although spiteful preferences play a crucial role in the development of human large scale cooperation, there is little evidence on spiteful behavior and its determinants in children. We investigate the relationship between children’s cognitive skills and spiteful behavior in a sample of 214 preschoolers aged 5-6 and their mothers. Other-regarding behavior of both mothers and children is elicited by four simple allocation decisions. A key advantage of our study is that it is carried out in a household context. Therefore, we have extensive information about the child’s and mother’s cognitive and noncognitive skills, health and household characteristics. We find that higher cognitive skills are associated with more spiteful behavior in children. This relationship is even more pronounced among boys and hence possibly reflecting differences in competitiveness. These results shed light on the determinants of the development of other-regarding preferences in humans.

    The in-work poverty risk and its entry transitions: differences in risk patterns between Germany and Great Britain

    Leen Vandecasteele (University of Manchester & WZB Berlin)
    Marco Gießelmann (University of Cologne)

    Working poverty is on the increase and is acknowledged as a substantial welfare risk in most post-industrial societies (Andreß and Lohmann 2008). This paper investigates transitions to in-work poverty in Germany and Great Britain. Despite similar levels of overall in-work poverty, the life events associated with entry into in-work poverty are expected to differ according to the way this risk is managed and countered by the welfare system.

    The theoretical part of the paper outlines how the in-work poverty risk is mediated by both labour market institutional framework as well as its welfare system. Consequently, empirical analysis on the basis of the German Socio-Economic Panel and the British Household Panel will elaborate on the main patterns of in-work poverty and the triggers of in-work poverty entry. The main triggers for in-work poverty entry are sought in transitions from unemployment or inactivity, labour market transitions (into part-time, self-employed or temporary work as well as occupational downgrading) and changes in the household employment context.

    The findings suggest that labour market entrants suffer disproportionately from the risk of entering in-work poverty in Germany. In Great Britain, employment exits of the partner is a stronger in-work poverty trigger and labour market transitions such as downward mobility and job change occur more frequently.

    The effect of preschool attendance on secondary school track choice: Evidence from siblings

    Martin Schlotter (ifo München)

    In this paper we estimate the causal effect of preschool attendance on secondary school track choice after primary school using data from the German Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP). In line with previous literature, OLS and Probit models show significant positive associations between preschool attendance and the probability of attending the highest secondary school track. Yet, using a siblings approach and controlling for family fixed effects, returns to preschool become significantly smaller and close to zero. These results are robust to the inclusion of several sibling-specific determinants that might affect within-family differences in both preschool attendance and future track choice. The small effects of preschool might be the consequence of the low-intensity character of German preschools.

    All in the Family British Style: Does Family Smoking Cause British Youth to Smoke?

    Laura Fumagalli (ISER, University of Essex)
    joint work with Dean R. Lillard (Cornell University)

    Smoking is one of the leading preventable causes of death in every developed economy. In the U.S. smoking is estimated to be a significant cause of more than 400,000 premature deaths annually. Recent policy debates in most countries have tended to focus on how to prevent youth from starting to smoke. Embedded in these debates is a stylized fact that has yet to be established in a systematic waywhether smoking by older family member (parents and/or older siblings) causes youth to be more likely to take up smoking. Many policy experts assume the answer to this question is obvious. In this paper we use data from the British Household Panel Study to try to estimate whether the relationship is causal. We estimate both naive models that ignore the endogeneity of the smoking decisions of family members and models that control for those choices. The results suggest that failing to control for the endogenous choice of parents to smoke leads to incorrect inferences.

    Internet users and non-users: comparing SOEP-data and a probability-based online panel

    Bella Struminskaya (GESIS)

    Online surveys are gaining in importance as a tool of data collection and as a platform for methodological experiments. However, certain challenges in regard to the quality of data need to be considered. Volunteer as well as probability-based online panels pose problems of non-coverage bias. Internet users differ from non-users in demographic characteristics: they are younger, better educated, non-immigrants, and have higher income compared to non-users.

    In addition to the differences in demographics there are some "webographic" or attitudinal dissimilarities between the two groups: Internet-users tend to be more "socially content" - they are more trusting, have lots of people to draw on for support, and tend to think that others are generally fair (Lenhart et al. 2003). Thus, attitudes and values of Internet users may differ from those of non-users and data collected online would lack representativeness.
    The goal of this explorative study is to evaluate the data quality of an online panel comparing SOEP-data and data from the offline-recruited probability-based online panel (GESIS). The analysis includes three steps.

    First, using SOEP2008 data the differences between Internet users and non-users are studied.
    The results replicate the finding of Lehnart et al. showing that German Internet users tend to be more socially content: after controlling for demographic differences Internet users significantly differ in their opinion that generally people are trustworthy and fair (though that doesn't hold true for readiness to help others).

    Second, the quality of the online panel is assessed by a comparison of the panelists' answers to the SOEP-data (the recruitment for the online panel started in December 2010). In the third step it would then be possible to estimate the non-coverage bias of the online panel by contrasting data collected via the Internet to the SOEP-data of the general population (Internet users and non-users).

    Symposium Gesellschaft mit beschränkter Information? Möglichkeiten und Grenzen des Zensus 2011

    Warum braucht Deutschland einen Zensus? Warum gibt es keine klassische Volkszählung mehr? Wird das neue Zensusverfahren genauso verlässliche Informationen liefern? Wer wird eigentlich noch befragt, welche Registerdaten werden verwendet, ist der Datenschutz gewährleistet?

    Das Symposium wird die politische Relevanz der Zensusergebnisse thematisieren, von der nationalen bis zur kommunalen Ebene. Die neuartige Zensusmethode wird zum einen überblickartig erläutert, zum anderen wird die wichtige Frage geklärt, warum eine Stichprobenbefragung bei Haushalten ausreicht, um die Qualität der Ergebnisse zur amtlichen Einwohnerzahl zu sichern und um eine ganze Reihe anderer wichtiger Ergebnisse - Erwerbstätigkeit, Bildung, Migrationshintergrund, Religion - zu liefern.

    Two-stage indirect sampling of Kindergarten children in the National Educational Panel Study

    Solange Koch (National Educational Panel Study )

    In general sampling is based on a complete list. Complete lists of information concerning all units of the target population enable using sampling strategies and getting – depending on the quality of list and strategy – unbiased estimators for parameters of the target population. Without a sampling frame direct sampling is not possible. In this situation Lavallée (2007) suggests to use an indirect sampling approach. If there exists a population with an available sampling frame and this population is connected to the target population in a uniquely defined manner, indirect sampling allows provision of a random sample of the target population and the provision of weights permitting an unbiased estimation of population parameters. There are different kinds of indirect sampling approaches, depending on the kind of link between two populations UA (the population with an available sampling frame) and UB (the target population) and whether a multistage sampling strategy is incorporated. The connection between both populations is called link and can be described by an indicator variable: If there is a connection between a unit j of UA and a unit k of UB , then let lj,ik =1 and lj,ik =0 otherwise, with i describing the structure of clusters in population UB , if there exists one .With this indicator variable and the knowledge of the selection probabilities of all units in UA weights can be calculated.

    In the National Educational Panel Study (NEPS) six main cohorts are sampled by a multicohort sequence design to get a longitudinal analysis of education in Germany. In contrast to institutions of other cohorts there is no sampling frame available for Kindergartens. However, in Germany all children have to attend at elementary school. Therefore every child that had been in Kindergarten can be found in an elementary school and for elementary schools a sampling frame exists. Hence, in the NEPS we sample elementary schools sA from the population UA and ask them to list all Kindergartens k from which children from their first grade came from. Proportional to the number of trespassing children Kindergartens are sampled and Kindergarten children tested. With all children tested in Kindergarten the sampling procedure is a two-stage indirect sampling.

    On the Stability of Self-Reported Measures of Willingness to Take Risks

    Ingo Isphording (Ruhr University Bochum Research School)

    Newly available self-reported measures of willingness to take risks are increasingly used as empirical representations of individual risk preferences. Psychological literature states that risk preferences are formed during childhood and are stable thereafter.  Referencing this literature, stability of preferences is often used as an identication assumption in econometric work.  This study supports this assumption empirically. Using data from the German SOEP, a Hausman-Taylor approach is used to test the influence of childhood characteristics and exogenous lifetime events
    on the level of self-reported willingness to take risks. Childhood characteristics turn out to be important determinants of willingness to take risks. Reported willingness to take risks decreases strongly with age, shocks like inheritance or emerging work disability have only a small, but signicant impact. This induces a potential source of endogeneity when willingness to take risks is used as explanatory variable in labor market research.

    Power within couples: What factors and transitions affect power?

    Yvonne Lott (DIW Berlin and BIGSSS, Bremen)

    Social inequality within the family is a crucial dimension of inequality in the wider society. Power imbalances between partners are linked with intra-family inequality. Surprisingly, power has mostly been neglected in German research so far. First goal of this study, therefore, is to get an idea about what factors are related to power. Rational choice theories as well as gender theory provide explanations for who has power and who doesn't. Furthermore, recent studies on power within intimate relationships mainly treat power as a static concept rather than a dynamic process. Since social relationships change during individuals’ lives, power also changes over partners’ life-courses. Given that transitions such as marriage, children and changes of employment status highly influence and shape the lives of individuals, these transitions might also have an impact on couples’ power. The second goal of this study is the analysis of the relationship between marriage, children and changes of employment status and power within couples. Power is measured on two dimensions: (1) control over financial resources and (2) financial decision-making. The analysis is based on the German Socio-Economic Panel Study (SOEP) in 2004, 2005 and 2008.  Results show that individual income is strongest related to power, but that gender differences also exist with regard to the division of labor and household income. Furthermore, marriage and children increase cooperation in couples. Interestingly, changes to a lower employment status decrease especially female partners' power..

    Das Beziehungs- und Familienpanel (pairfam): Design, Feldverlauf und Methodik

    Nina Schumann (Mannheimer Zentrum für Europäische Sozialforschung, MZES)

    Mit dem Beziehungs- und Familienpanel (pairfam) existiert seit der ersten Erhebungswelle aus dem Jahr 2008/2009 eine weitere große, repräsentative und interdisziplinäre Längsschnittstudie in Deutschland. Das auf 14 Jahre angelegte Projekt folgt einem Kohorten-Sequenz-Design; in der ersten Welle wurden Face-to-Face-Interviews mit insgesamt rund 12.000 Ankerpersonen der Geburtsjahrgänge 1971-73, 1981-83 und 1991-93 geführt. Im jährlichen Turnus finden Wiederholungsbefragungen statt. Zudem werden auch Partner, Eltern bzw. Stiefeltern und Kinder der Ankerpersonen befragt (Multi-Actor-Design). Inhaltlich stehen dabei Themen der Partnerschafts- und Familienentwicklung, der Familienplanung, der intergenerationalen Beziehungen und des Erziehungsverhaltens im Fokus.
    Dieser Vortrag soll einen Überblick über Design, Feldverlauf und Methodik von pairfam liefern und somit auch die Möglichkeit zum Erfahrungsaustausch - von Panel- zu Panelkolleginnen und -kollegen - geben.
