    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen The Effects of Fees on Study Duration and Completion in the Population of German Students

    This paper exploits unexpected regional changes in fees to uncover the causal effect on the duration of study and completion probabilities for an entire country. The empirical analysis relies on a novel empirical framework that merges difference-in-difference estimation with duration analysis to exploit a natural policy experiment, namely the introduction and terminationof fees for university studies in several German states. This strategy allows uncovering effects of fees on the intensive margin, while holding constant extensive margin responses such as changes in the composition of the student body or migration responses that occur due to fees.We find that even modest fees have large and significant impacts on study duration and will also examine if the private costs paid by students are recovered through pubilc savings due to students studying faster.

    Symposium Die Zukunft des Rentensystems – Verteilungswirkungen und Finanzierung von Rentenreformen

    Hermann Buslei und Peter Haan vom DIW Berlin zeigen in Impulsvorträgen den aktuellen Forschungsstand zu Finanzierungseffekten der Anhebung des Renteneintrittsalters und zu Verteilungswirkungen der gesetzlichen Rente auf.

    Im anschließenden Panel soll diskutiert werden, welche Standpunkte die Parteien hinsichtlich rentenpolitischer Themen, insbesondere der Anhebung des Renteneintrittsalters, der Aufhebung des Äquivalenzprinzips in der Rente sowie der Einführung einer Mindestrente vertreten. Darüber hinaus soll die künftige Rolle der betrieblichen und privaten Altersvorsorge beleuchtet werden.

    Wir freuen uns über Ihre verbindliche Anmeldung an events@diw.de bis zum 25. November 2017.
    HINWEIS: Im Vorfeld der Panelveranstaltung findet am DIW Berlin ein Workshop zur privaten Altersvorsorge statt, mehr Informationen finden Sie hier.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen The Effect of Parental Leave Policies in Frictional Labor Markets

    I analyze the impact of labor market risks on fertility and female labor supply in a dynamic structural life-cycle model. In particular, I provide insights on whether parental leave policies, such as legal job protection periods, can mitigate these risks. To this end, I estimate a dynamic discrete choice model, using a rich German panel dataset, for the time period between 2007 and 2013. Preliminary findings suggest a strong impact of parental leave job protection on fertility.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen 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.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Labor Market Responses to Tax Reforms

    In a high-tax labor market like France, tax reductions are a popular tool to support employment of low-wage workers. The welfare implications of these exemptions go beyond the directly affected. We ask three questions. First, because employment and wages are determined by both supply and demand of labor, what are the equilibrium effects of tax reductions on different workers? Second, since policy-makers' horizons may be short, are short-run effects very different from long-run outcomes? Finally, thirdly, who should benefit from tax reductions? To answer these questions we estimate an equilibrium search-and-matching model with worker and firm heterogeneity based on French administrative data. While a narrowly focused low-wage tax reduction has distributional advantages, it negatively affects productivity by encouraging job creation from low-productivity firms, making it harder for high-productivity workers to find suitable matches. We simulate short-run effects on employment and welfare and find that they may be contrary to the long-run equilibrium effects.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Obvious Mistakes in a Strategically Simple College Admissions Environment

    We provide direct field evidence that, even though the Hungarian college admissions process uses a strategically simple assignment mechanism, a large fraction of the applicants employ a dominated strategy. These applicants make obvious mistakes: they forgo the option for a tuition waiver worth thousands of dollars, even though this behavior has no benefit. In many cases, applicants would have received the tuition waiver had they asked for it. Obvious mistakes are more common among low-achieving students and high-socioeconomic-status students. Costly mistakes transfer tuition waivers from high- to low-socioeconomic status applicants and increase the number of students attending college. We exploit exogenous variation in the availability of tuition waivers and find that a rise in program selectivity substantially increases the likelihood of obvious mistakes, especially among high socioeconomic status applicants and low-achieving applicants.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen The effect of parental education on the offspring's mental health

    We are the first to estimate the causal effect of parental education on a wide range of the adult offspring's mental health outcomes. Theoretical considerations predict positive direct and indirect effects of parental education on the offspring's mental health. But the relation between parental education and mental health outcomes is plagued by endogeneity. To circumvent this problem, we exploit exogenous variation in schooling which is completely unrelated to the offspring's mental health. In contrast to our theoretical considerations, we find no positive effects of parental education on the offspring's mental health. Moreover, preliminary results point at a negative effect of parental education and the offspring's mental health.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Retirement and social connection in old age

    Facing an aging population, many societies discuss policies to prolong work lives. At the individual level, such policies could affect social connectedness in several ways. On the one hand, prolonged work lives could promote a healthier social life at advanced ages by maintaining job-related networks for longer. On the other hand, retirement might boost quantity and quality of social networks by an increase in leisure time. This paper sheds light on the net effects of retirement on social wellbeing and the elderly’s social networks with a particular focus on heterogeneity patterns. Using data from SHARE, we analyze whether country, gender, or education are important dimensions of heterogeneity. Potential endogeneity of the individual retirement status is accounted for using an instrumental variables approach. We thereby exploit variation in the individual retirement decision that is induced by pensionable age thresholds. The results suggest that retirement is not an important determinant for social connectedness. Moreover, effect heterogeneity is not particularly pronounced in the dimensions under study.
