    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar Computer Assisted Measurement and Coding of Educational Qualifications in Multicultural Surveys (CAMCES): a new set of survey tools

    Education is one of the most frequently used variables in social science research. Because of complex institutional differences between educational systems across the world, educational attainment is notoriously difficult to measure in a cross-cultural survey context. So far, surveys have only offered measurement instruments referring to the educational system of the survey country, which is not necessarily the country the respondent was educated in. Between 2013 and 2016, GESIS has therefore developed context-sensitive tools for measuring educational attainment in cross-cultural computer-assisted surveys – e.g. surveys of migrants, or cross-national surveys. The tools consist of an international database of educational qualifications, a universal coding scheme for educational attainment, a questionnaire module available in 5 languages, and a software interface to allow database searches in the questionnaire and provide context-sensitive (i.e. corresponding to the country in which respondents received their education) response categories to respondents. This will improve measurement quality for the education item in several ways, for example by allowing migrants to report the educational qualification they have actually achieved rather than guessing at some face value ‘equivalent’ in the survey country; by measuring at a detailed level so as to not confuse respondents with abstract aggregations of educational qualifications on long show cards and losing a substantial amount of information for analysis; and by standard coding routines for harmonization into various comparative education coding schemes during data processing, which could improve cross-survey consistency. The presentation will also report empirical results from 3 pilot studies: the SOEP Innovation Sample 2014, the SOEP Migrant Sample 2015 and the Dutch LISS panel in 2016. For all three studies, we have independent education measures from earlier panel waves using ‘established’ questionnaire items. This provides the opportunity to compare respondents’ educational attainment resulting from the open and closed questions.

    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.

    DIW Seminar on Macroeconomics and Financial Markets Strains on money market makers and money market liquidity

    We analyze the trading book of a key market maker in the European unsecured money market and study the extent to which liquidity risks accumulated by this market maker affect his pricing of liquidity and the bid/ask spread he quotes on unsecured borrowing and lending. We find that the larger the funding liquidity risk he assumed, the higher is the price he quotes for liquidity. Furthermore, his bid-ask spread increases as his accumulated liquidity risk rises. These findings show that the distribution of liquidity risks within the banking sector matters for the pricing and liquidity in the unsecured money market.

    DIW Seminar on Macroeconomics and Financial Markets Is it the "How" or the "When" that Matters in Fiscal Adjustments?

    Using data from 16 OECD countries from 1981 to 2014 we find that the composition of fiscal adjustments is much more important than the state of the cycle in determining their e¤ects on output. Adjustments based upon spending cuts are much less costly than those based upon tax increases regardless of whether they start in a recession or not. Our results appear not to be systematically explained by di¤erent reactions of monetary policy. However, when the domestic central bank can set interest rates - that is outside of a currency union - it appears to be able to dampen the recessionary e¤ects of tax-based consolidations implemented during a recession. This finding could help understand the recessionary e¤ects of European "austerity", which was mostly tax based and implemented within a currency union.

    Joint work with Alberto Alesina, Gualtiero Azzalini, Francesco Giavazzi and Armando Miano.

    Workshop 46th GESIS Spring Seminar: Causal Inference with Observational Data
    Week 1: Causal Analysis with Panel Data: Potentials and Limitations

    Course description

    Longitudinal data is widely discussed as an important means to validate causal interpretations. This course introduces the basic methods suitable to exploit this potential of panel data. We start with methods for categorical independent variables. Here, we introduce the simple Life Event Design (LED) and explain how this is related to the Difference-in-Difference Estimator (DiD). If the independent variable is measured on a metric scale, social scientists usually employ regression techniques, which is also the case for longitudinal data. Therefore, we discuss extensions of the simple regression framework addressing the properties and potentials of longitudinal data. Concretely, we introduce Fixed Effects (FE), First Differences (FD), and Hybrid Regression Models (HM) and discuss the differences and assumptions of these techniques. For research questions with categorical dependent variables, we introduce two applications of logistic regression suitable for the analysis of longitudinal data: the Conditional Logistic Regression, which resembles the benefits of FE, and techniques of Event History Analysis (EHA), which are particularly suitable if the researcher explicitly focuses transitions of the dependent variable. In all parts of the course, we put a strong emphasize on the intuitive understanding of the methods employed. All exercises are based on the data from the Socio Economic Panel Study (SOEP), which will be introduced during the course.

    Keywords
    Panel data analysis, fixed effects regression, event history analysis, hybrid regression, conditional logistic regression.

    Target group
    Participants will find the course useful if they

    • have basic quantitative skills and want to add an extra qualification totheir methodological knowledge,
    • are planning empirical projects on the basis of longitudinal data,
    • are pursuing a career as empirical social scientist and have not yetlearned how to analyze panel data.

    Learning objectives
    By the end of the course participants will

    • be familiar the potential and limitations of longitudinal data to improve causal interpretations,
    • have the ability to make accurate methodological choices in particular research situations involving longitudinal data,
    • know how to apply the most important longitudinal techniques in theory and practice (on the basis of the statistical software stata, have a good overview on the analytical potential for longitudinal analysis of the German Socio Economic Panel (SOEP).


    Prerequisites
    This course addresses beginners of panel data analysis. However, participants should have a solid knowledge of OLS and logistic regression techniques.

    We will use the software program Stata in the exercises. Participants be familiar with the basics of Stata, its commands to manage data, and know how to produce descriptive and multivariate statistics.
