    Workshop Konferenz zur "Evaluation des Mindestlohns"

    Am 4. und 5. Juli 2018 wird am DIW Berlin die Konferenz „Evaluation of Minimum Wages“ stattfinden. Ziel der Konferenz ist es, ein Forum für die aktuelle Forschung zu Mindestlöhnen und deren Effekten zu bieten. Während der Fokus der Veranstaltung auf Deutschland nach der Einführung des flächendeckenden Mindestlohns liegt, werden auch Beiträge mit empirischen Untersuchungen aus anderen Ländern sowie Studien mit theoretischem oder methodischem Schwerpunkt gesucht. Als Keynote Speaker konnten wir Prof. Dr. David Neumark (University of California, Irvine) gewinnen.

    SOEP Introduction to the new SOEPlong-version. From raw data to longitudinal analyses in 3 hours
    Post-conference workshop 2018 SLLS Conference

    The German Socio-Economic Panel Study (SOEP) is a wide-ranging representative longitudinal study of private households in Germany, located at the German Institute for Economic Research, DIW Berlin. Some of the many topics include household composition, occupational biographies, marital biographies, employment, earnings, health and subjective indicators. The panel was started in 1984 and offers longitudinal information for more than 80.000 persons in about 20.000 households.

    The purpose of the workshop is to introduce and familiarize doctoral students as well as senior researchers with the file structure and potential of the SOEP data. Specifically, we explore the potential of “SOEPlong”, a new mode of data-provision based on datasets in long-format. Particularly, the workshop focuses on the longitudinal components of the data. We demonstrate and discuss the ability of the longitudinal household design to a) validate causal interpretations, b) combine characteristics from different phases of the life course and c) track dynamics between partners (and other household members) over time.

    Given the huge amount of data (and the correspondingly large number of files) covering 30 years of micro data at the household, individual and event levels, the SOEP dataset is growing into an increasingly complex structure which can be difficult to handle for users, even if they are experienced empirical analysts. The workshop shall serve to help users cope with this complexity. Additionally, the potential of longitudinal data in general (and the SOEP in particular) to model life-course dynamics in sociology is still largely underused. Therefore, the course aims at encouraging the sociological research community to make stronger use of the benefits of this type of data in research projects on dynamics of objective, subjective and biographical indicators.

    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.

    SOEP CNEF Workshop 2018 at DIW Berlin

    For the first time, the DIW Berlin will host an international workshop on longitudinal data management and analysis. In contrast to our regular German SOEP-workshops, this course will be specifically devoted to comparative longitudinal and cross-country designs with the SOEP and its international sister household-panels. After an in-depth introduction to the SOEP and on general issues in longitudinal data handling, the second part of the workshop will be devoted to the US-American Panel Study of Income Dynamics (PSID). The SOEP and the PSID have many topics and structural features in common, while the respective countries differ in many institutional and compositional features. Therefore, these two datasets are particularly fruitful for empirical cross-country analyses. This potential is additionally stipulated by the provision of several key variables in a harmonized form in the so-called cross-national equivalent files (CNEF). The third part of the course therefore will be devoted to the CNEF-project. It will give an overview on the range of harmonized variables, contributing countries and on issues of data-access. We will also discuss examples of research questions that lead to cross-country designs and limitations of the CNEF data. Additionally, the course will deal with the key analytical cross-country designs.


    Day 1: Introduction to longitudinal data management and analysis on the basis of the Socio-economic Panel Study (SOEP). Lecture and hands-on sessions (Marco Giesselmann, DIW Berlin and Bielefeld University).

    Day 2: Introduction to the PSID. Lecture and hands-on sessions (Paula Fomby, University of Michigan)

    Day 3: Using the CNEF as basis for cross-country designs. Potentials, Problems and applications. Lecture (TBC) and hands-on sessions (Marco Giesselmann)   

    Registration & Requirements

    This workshop aims at doctoral students, post-docs and senior researchers, who currently carry out or are planning studies with the SOEP or other household panel data. We specifically want to encourage scholars with a strong interest in the impact of country-specific characteristics on subjective or objective individual conditions to participate in the workshop. Participants shall be familiar with stata and basic quantitative methods. Admission to the workshop will be granted on a first-come basis. The participation fee will be 60 Euros. Registration will be open from June 4th, 12 a.m. (CET).

    For questions on registration and organization,
    please contact Christine Kurka ().
