    Preferences, Institutions, and Stereotypes - Determinants of the Gender Specific Occupational Channelling

    Anne Busch, DIW Berlin

    Although women and men nowadays are similarly work-oriented and show a comparable human capital accumulation (e.g. concerning education), most women still work in typical "women's jobs" and most men in typical "men's jobs". While there exists much research about consequences of working in gender typical or atypical occupations, only few studies analyze systematically the determinants of the gender specific occupational channelling on the individual level. 

    With her presentation, Anne Busch tries to fill this gap: The main goal is to analyze empirically the determinants of the gender specific occupational "choices", and to broaden the theoretical view from more classical pre-occupational, preference-oriented theories to institutional and social-psychological as well as organizational approaches.

    Comparing working time patterns of France 1998-99 and UK 2000-01: Results from Two-stage Optimal Matching Analyses

    Man Yee Kann, University of Oxford

    Abstract:
    Sequence analysis is a useful tool for analysing time diary data, which provide detailed information about frequency and duration of daily activities (e.g. paid work, housework, leisure and rest) as well as sequences of these activities. We conduct optimal matching analyses (OM) on "workweek-grid" data from the UK Time Use Survey (2000-01) and the French Time Use Survey (1998-99) which provides detailed information on the scheduling of paid work over a week with 15-minute time slots. A special case of Optimal matching (Dynamic Hamming Matching) with no insertion and deletion operations is used in order to avoid altering the structure and length of workweeks. This variant is applied in two steps. First, we derive typologies of workdays by applying OM on the days worked. Second, based on the typologies of workdays, we build simplified work weeks and typologies of workweeks.
    The typologies of workdays and workweeks are very similar in the two countries, but the proportions of these various types of workdays and workweeks differ, especially for the case of part-time workweeks. In the UK, the most common type of part-time work is the "short work week part-time": workers on average work for three days a week but many of them have standard or part-time work hours on their work days. In France, "part work week, standard hour part-time" is the most common type of part-time work: workers on average work for 3.5 days a week, but most of them have standard hour work days. We conduct multiple correspondence analyses and multinomial logistic regressions to examine the relationship between workweeks and workers' characteristics. In both countries, the two main factors accounting for the distribution of workweeks among workers are the overall economic position of workers (e.g. skills, educational level and pay) and industry (industrial and manufacturing sectors, and the high-skilled and low-skilled service sectors). Standard work week and long-hour work week are associated with high-skill and high-pay occupations. However, in the case of France, professionals, managers and executives tend to have long hour work weeks. Atypical work weeks (e.g. part-time and shift work) are associated with low-skill and-low pay occupations. Those who work in the industrial sector tend to have shift work weeks, and those in the service sector tend to have part-time work weeks.

    A related discussion paper, focusing on the methods applied for the analyses of workdays and workweeks is available at http://www.sociology.ox.ac.uk/documents/working-papers/2009/swp09_04.pdf .

    Berlin Lunchtime Meeting Altersarmut?
    Erwerbsbiografien und Alterseinkommen im demografischen Wandel

    Teilzeitarbeit, geringfügige Beschäftigungsverhältnisse, Solo-Selbstständigkeit - immer mehr Flexibilisierung kennzeichnet die Situation am deutschen Arbeitsmarkt. Begleitet wird dies von einer anhaltend hohen Langzeitarbeitslosigkeit und einem starken Anstieg der Beschäftigung im Niedriglohnsektor. Aus sozialpolitischer Sicht ist deshalb zu befürchten, dass die Arbeitsmarktentwicklungen in Verbindung mit den bereits beschlossenen Maßnahmen zur langfristigen Senkung des Rentenniveaus zu mehr Altersarmut und steigenden Sozialtransfers führen werden.

    Die aktuellen Ergebnisse des vorgestellten Forschungsprojekts beruhen auf einer Analyse der zukünftigen individuellen Rentenzahlbeträge. Die Vorträge im Rahmen des Berlin Lunchtime Meetings beleuchten die unterschiedlichen Facetten eines veränderten Rentensystems: die Verteilung der Alterseinkünfte, die Bedeutung der Bildungsabschlüsse und des Geschlechts, die Struktur der privaten Vorsorge und die Entwicklung in Ost- und Westdeutschland.

    Viktor Steiner ist seit Mai 2002 Professor für Volkswirtschaftslehre, insbesondere Empirische Wirtschaftsforschung an der Freien Universität Berlin und Leiter der Abteilung Staat am DIW Berlin. Er ist auch Research Fellow am Forschungsinstitut für die Zukunft der Arbeit (IZA), Bonn. Viktor Steiner studierte Volkswirtschaftslehre an der Universität Linz und am Institut für Höhere Studien in Wien.
    Richard Hauser ist ein international renommierter Experte für Fragen der Verteilungs- und Sozialpolitik. Er war Professor für Volkswirtschaftslehre, insbesondere Verteilungs- und Sozialpolitik an der Goethe-Universität Frankfurt am Main.
    Wolfgang Strengmann-Kuhn ist seit November 2009 Rentenpolitischer Sprecher der Fraktion Bündnis 90/Die Grünen und Mitglied im Ausschuss für Arbeit und Soziales sowie im Petitionsausschuss. Er ist Diplom-Volkswirt und hat an der Goethe-Universität Frankfurt promoviert und habilitiert. Seine inhaltlichen Schwerpunkte liegen unter anderem in den Bereichen Reform und Finanzierung der sozialen Sicherung, Armutsforschung, Kinderarmut sowie Altersarmut.

    Die Veranstaltung findet in deutscher Sprache statt.

    One last puff? Public Smoking Bans and Smoking Behavior

    Thomas Siedler, DIW Berlin
    Silke Anger, DIW Berlin
    Michael Kvasnicka, RWI Essen - Büro Berlin

    This paper investigates the short-term effects of public smoking bans on individual smoking behavior. In 2007 and 2008, state-level smoking bans were introduced gradually in all of Germany's sixteen federal states. We exploit this variation in the timing of state bans to identify the effect that smoke-free policies had on individuals' smoking propensity and intensity. Using rich longitudinal data from the German Socio-Economic Panel Study, our difference-in-differences estimates show that the introduction of smoke-free legislation in Germany did not change average smoking behavior in the population. Individuals who were exposed to public smoking bans were neither less likely to smoke nor did they smoke less. However, our estimates point also to important heterogeneous effects. Specifically, we find the young, singles, and those living in urban areas both to be less likely to smoke and to smoke less intensively following the introduction of public smoking bans.
