    Veranstaltung Familien im Zentrum: Warum wir eine stärkere Familienorientierung in Kindertageseinrichtungen brauchen

    Die Heinz und Heide Dürr Stiftung fördert und unterstützt seit 20 Jahren bundesweit die Implementierung des Early Excellence-Ansatzes in Deutschland, der auf eine gute Einbindung von Familien in frühkindliche Bildungsprozesse zielt. Das DIW Berlin befasst sich mit bildungs- und familienrelevanten Fragen, vor allem auch im Hinblick auf eine zukunftsweisende „Bildungsrendite“.

    Das DIW Berlin hat in einer Studie zusammengestellt, welchen rechtlichen Auftrag frühkindliche Bildungsinstitutionen in den Bundesländern haben, Familien in ihrer Bildungs- und Erziehungsarbeit zu unterstützen. In der Studie wurden auch internationale und nationale Ansätze zusammengetragen, die in Richtung von Zentren für Familien gehen.

    Die Heinz und Heide Dürr Stiftung und das DIW Berlin laden zu einer gemeinsamen Veranstaltung ein, bei der die Ergebnisse der Studie vorgestellt und die sich daraus ergebenden Handlungsempfehlungen gemeinsam mit der Bundesministerin Dr. Franziska Giffey sowie Kommunalpolitiker*innen und Praktiker*innen diskutiert werden.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Retirement and informal care provision - Effects of the 1999 pension reform in Germany

    Using a reform induced increase in the ERA for German women this paper uncovers causal effects of retirement on informal care provision. Studies so far focus on the causality of labor supply on informal care activity in the middle part of an individual’s working career, mostly neglecting effects of retirement. This paper uses the 1999 reform that abolished the ERA at age 60 for women born from 1952 onward to instrument retirement and estimate a causal effect on informal care provision. Doing so, the underlying mechanism, namely that retirement solves a time conflict at the individual level is accessed. I apply two German survey data sets (SOEP and SHARE) and find that affected women decrease their care activity due to the reform on the extensive margin. In an heterogeneity analysis I show that women retiring from employment and highly educated women drive the results. Retirement is estimated to increase informal care activity on the extensive margin.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Was Marx Right? Income Inequality, Market Concentration and Voting in late 19th Century Germany

    The  recent  debate  on  the  causes  and  consequences  of  income  inequality shows striking similarity to the debate in many parts of Europe before 1914. Today and back then the focus was on the role of capital share and market concentration as a cause for rising inequality.  In this study we analyze the drivers and consequences of income inequality exploiting a newly constructed regional panel for the German Empire, 1874-1913.  Our data features large variation in terms of inequality across 30 Prussian districts (Regierungsbezirke) and dynamic changes over time, both  within  the  common  institutional  framework of the German Empire.  Both,  capital share and inequality are strongly associated with rising market concentration.  Further, inequality had a strong effect on political polarization.  However, in seeming contrast to modern results but in line with neoclassical political economy, income inequality in 19th century Germany was mainly linked to support for the political left, while the relationship with the political right is much weaker.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Initial Conditions and Nation Building: Evidence from East Germany

    At the end of World War II, 40% of the pre-arranged Soviet occupation zone in Germany was under the control of the Allied Expeditionary Force. This occupation was very short-lived and the Red Army gained full control of the Soviet zone less than two months after the German surrender. However, this paper shows that the brief Allied occupation systematically increased opposition to the budding authoritarian regime that the USSR set up in what would become the German Democratic Republic (East Germany). We exploit variation in the identity of the initial occupation army within the Soviet occupation zone, stemming from the idiosyncratic line of contact separating Soviet and Allied forces. We show that support for the state party (SED) during the last free elections in 1946 was systematically lower in the areas initially occupied by the Allies, while the incidence of protests during the 1953 uprising was higher. This increased resistance to the regime in the Allied-liberated region persists until the 1989 protests leading to the demise of the regime.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Early childhood care services and refugee children: Differences in attendance and consequences for integration

    We focus on early childhood education and care (ECEC) as one important channel of social integration for refugee families that recently arrived in Germany (between 2013 and 2016). First, we examine the attendance of ECEC of refugee children and investigate how patterns vary depending on individual and family characteristics, and institutional determinants of the location of residence. Then, we evaluate the impact of ECEC attendance of refugee children on the social integration of their parents. Our results show a substantial effect of children’s ECEC attendance on the social integration of their mothers. To estimate the causal effect, we adopt an instrumental variable approach exploiting the county-level variation in ECEC attendance rates. Furthermore, we control for a rich set of characteristics for refugee’s human capital, pre-migration history, and current situation in Germany, as well as for economic and institutional characteristics of the location of residence.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen How did EU Eastern enlargement affect the Austrian labor market?

    In recent years, there has been growing public and political opposition against the principle of free movement of labor within the European Union. Already before the first EU Eastern enlargement in 2004, potential adverse labor market effects for natives in the old EU Member States were widely discussed. Despite these discussions, there is little ex-post research on the impact of EU Eastern enlargement on old Member States' labor markets. In our paper, we want to study how the EU Eastern enlargement affected the Austrian labor market. First, we provide a descriptive analysis of the development of labor supply from the new EU Member States in the Austrian labor market with a focus on the period around their EU entry and free labor market access. Second, we want to exploit the observed patterns in immigration from the EU8 countries that joined in 2004 to identify the effect on the Austrian labor market. More precisely, we want to use variation in the EU8 worker density on the community level over time and over the distance to the closest EU8 border. We find that the share of EU8 employees among all employees in Austria increased by a factor of four from 2003 to 2015. With free access, we see a shift in the composition of migrant workers toward lower-qualified and younger groups. We can further show that the inflow of EU8 employment over time is larger in communities closer to the border.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Parental leave and mothers' careers

    This paper analyzes the impact of the German Parental Leave Reform on mothers' careers in the long run. To identify the causal effect, we use a difference-in-difference approach that compares labor market outcomes of mothers who gave birth just before and right after the reform and net out seasonal effects by including the year before. Using the total population of the Integrated Employment Biographies, we observe that high-income mothers return later to the labor market. In contrast, we do not observe changes in the average duration of the employment interruptions for low income mothers. Seven to nine years after birth, we do not find effects on wages nor on the probability to hold a leadership positions for neither of the two groups. The result suggests that the longer career breaks for high-income mothers do not have negative effects on their subsequent careers.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Birth Cohort Size Variation and the Estimation of Class Size Effects

    We present evidence that the practice of holding back poorly performing students affects estimates of the impact of class size on student outcomes based on within-school variation of cohort size over time. This type of variation is commonly used to identify class size effects. We build a theoretical model in which cohort size is subject to random shocks and students whose performance falls below a threshold are retained. Our model predicts that initial birth cohort size is mechanically related to the grade-level share of previously retained students once these cohorts reach higher grades. This compositional effect gives rise to an upward bias in class size effects exploiting variation in birth cohort size. Using administrative  data on school enrollment for all primary schools in one federal state of Germany, we find support for this compositional effect. Correcting for the resulting bias in a unique dataset on standardized test scores for the full student population of third graders, we find that not only are smaller classes beneficial for language and math test scores, but also for reducing grade repetition.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen The Impacts of the Affordable Care Act on Low-Income Household Finances

    This paper investigates the impact of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA, "Obamacare") on out-of-pocket medical expenditures and access to health care for households across the income distribution. Using a DDD identification strategy and simulated eligibility instruments, I parameterize three of the central policy provisions of the ACA: Medicaid expansion, insurance exchange subsidies and individual mandate penalties, and assess their separate effects. I find that all three policies decreased the OOP of targeted households at the bottom of the income distribution and increased utilization of medical services and access to health care.
