SOEP 13th International German Socio-Economic Panel User Conference (SOEP 2018)

The 13th International German Socio-Economic Panel User Conference (SOEP2018) will be held in Berlin, July 19-20, 2018 at Berlin Brandenburg Academy of Sciences (BBAW).

The conference provides researchers who use the SOEP with the opportunity to present and discuss their work with other researchers familiar with SOEP data. Researchers of all disciplines (e.g., economics, demography, geography, political science, public health, psychology, and sociology) who use the SOEP or the SOEP part of the Cross-National Equivalent File (CNEF) are invited to submit an abstract. We encourage in particular submission of papers using the longitudinal features of SOEP as well as papers on survey methodology and cross national comparative analysis.

Besides the open call for paper submissions, we invite session contributions with four papers each on the following topics:

• Implications of Technological Change
• Intergenerational Transmission
• Low and Minimum Wages
• Migration and Integration (e.g., refugees, EU-enlargement)
• Unification of Germany

At the 13th International SOEP User Conference the entire SOEP team and research community will celebrate Gert G. Wagner’s numerous accomplishments on behalf of the SOEP. This is a particularly fitting venue, as it was Gert Wagner who launched the first SOEP User Conference in 1993. We are delighted that this conference will be held at the same location as it was 25 years ago: the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences (BBAW) on Gendarmenmarkt, in the center of Berlin.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen The Impact of Initial Placement Restrictions on Labor Market Outcomes of Refugees

    This paper analyzes employment effects of a policy reform that was introduced as a measure for targeted integration of foreigners into local labor markets in Germany. The Residence Rule puts additional constraints on initial residence decisions for refugees after having received a permanent residence permit. Given that this reform applies to a subset of refugees only, it creates exogenous variation that I exploit in a Differences-in-Differences analysis. Using a novel data set, the IAB-BAMF-SOEP Survey of Refugees in Germany, the results suggest a negative effect of the reform on the probability to take up employment. This effect is robust to the inclusion/exclusion of covariates. Yet, since sample size in the post-treatment period is relatively small, some specifications yield statistically insignificant effects.

    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.

    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar Tax and Transfer Policies and the Female Labor Supply in the EU

    This study measures the effect of tax-benefit policies on female labor supply based on a broad sample of 26 European countries in 2005-2010. The tax-benefit microsimulation model EUROMOD is used to calculate a measure of work incentives at the extensive margin - the participation tax rate, which is then used as the main explanatory variable in a female employment equation. This allows me to deal with the endogeneity of income in a new way by using a simulated instrumental variable based on a fixed EU-wide sample of women. Results suggest that a 10 percentage point increase in the participation tax rate decreases the female employment probability by 2 percentage points. The effect is higher for single mothers, for women in the middle of the skills distribution, and in countries that have lower rates of female employment.

    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 The Value of Partial Retirement for Labor Supply, Public Balances and Income Inequality - Evidence from a Structural Analysis

    This paper develops a structural dynamic retirement model to investigate effects and corresponding underlying mechanisms of a partial retirement program in Germany on labor supply, fiscal balances and the pension income distribution. The structural approach  allows to disentangle the two counteracting mechanisms that drive the employment effects of partial retirement: 1) the crowd-out from full-time employment, and 2) the movement from early retirement or unemployment to partial retirement. It also allows to investigate the isolated role of financial compensations in a partial retirement program. The analysis is based on a unique administrative dataset that collects biographical information on full employment histories and combines information on partial retirement take-up with information on individual pension levels. For this purpose I subsequently perform three counterfactual policy simulations: 1) full access to partial retirement 2) an increase of the normal retirement age from 65 to 67, and 3) Adding wage and pension compensations to partial retirement. The results show negative employment effects but potentially positive fiscal consequences as well as a reduction in pension income inequality when partial retirement is introduced. Wage and pension compensations in partial retirement do not substantially affect employment behavior but pension compensations proof necessary to avoid an increased risk of old-age poverty when access to partial retirement is unrestricted.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Evaluating the Labor Market Effects of Compulsory Military Service in Germany

    Between 1956 and 2011 more than 12.4 million German men had to perform some form of compulsory national service, either military or civil. However, little is known about the impacts of this conscription system on draftees in Germany. I present new evidence on the long-run effects of mandatory military service on wages of West-German men born between 1960 and 1970 using detailed longitudinal data.

    Berlin Lunchtime Meeting Impact of Migration on Income Levels in Advanced Economies

    Florence Jaumotte | International Monetary Fund

    Tuesday, 31st January 2017 | 12h00 – 13h00
    followed by lunch buffet

    DIW Berlin, Mohrenstr. 58, 10117 Berlin
    Schumpeter Saal, 1st floor

    Moderation: Prof. Dr. Jürgen Schupp | DIW Berlin

    The presentation will examine the longer-term impact of migration on the GDP per capita of receiving advanced economies. Addressing carefully the risk of reverse causality, Florence Jaumotte will illustrate whys and wherefores of immigration increases the GDP per capita of host economies, mostly by raising labor productivity. Both high- and low-skilled migrants contribute, in part by complementing the existing skill set of the population. Finally, the gains from immigration appear to be broadly shared.

    Florence Jaumotte is a senior economist in the IMF’s Research Department. She has worked in the Multilateral Surveillance Division and the World Economic Studies Division of the Research Department, as well as on a number of country teams. Her research has focused on labor market institutions and policies, income inequality, and open-economy macroeconomics. Previously, she has worked in the Economics Department of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) in Paris. She obtained her PhD in Economics from Harvard University.

    Jürgen Schupp studied Economics and Sociology in Mainz and Frankfurt am Main. In February 2013 he was appointed as Director of Research Unit Socio-Economic Panel Study (SOEP). Since September 2013, Jürgen Schupp has held the position of Full Professor of Sociology with a focus on empirical social research at the Free University of Berlin in cooperation with DIW Berlin.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Job risk, fertility, and female labor supply

    Recent research from the demographic and economic literature suggests a strong link between labor market uncertainty and fertility. Taking this relationship into account, I take a new look at parental leave policies in Germany. Using a dynamic structural life-cycle model of female labor supply and fertility, I will evaluate the impact of these policies under job risks and with fixed-term contracts. Estimation is work in progress.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Do Caseworkers Reduce Unemployment? Evidence from Unexpected Work Absences

    Caseworkers are the primary human resource used by governments to match unemployed workers to jobs. This paper provides first estimates on the role of caseworkers in reducing the duration of unemployment spells, using register data from the Swiss UI. For identification, I exploit caseworker-time specific variation in unexpected work absences, which I show to be independent of job seeker characteristics and labor market conditions. I find that the duration of unemployment increases on average by 2 weeks if a job seeker's caseworker is absent for at least ten workdays during the first three months of unemployment. This effect is largely driven by absences of high value added caseworkers. As main channels, I identify a reduction in the number of caseworker meetings and an increase in the probability of meeting with a replacement. Further, the participation in programs with individual-specific content is reduced. It appears that personal interactions and individualized treatment assignments are an important component of the caseworker's production function. Placebo tests reveal that future absences do not affect current outcomes, confirming the absence of confounding caseworker-time specific trends.
