    The obstinacy of gender stereotypes. Evidence from the Found-in-Translation Task

    Speaker: Patrycja Janowska-Widomska, University of Warsaw
    Ort: Joan Robinson Room
    DIW Berlin
    Room 3.3.002a
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Zeit: 13:00 to 14:00

    The pursuit of science (especially exact sciences) is commonly associated with the male gender. This might have a lot of negative consequences, including discrimination and underrepresentation of female researchers at academia. We conduct two experiments with a series of conditions that make it gradually easier to avoid misattribution of gender of a female scholar. In a novel Found-in-Translation ...

    Career Decisions over the Life-cycle: The Impact of Social Insurance Policies

    Speaker: Annica Gehlen
    Ort: Anna J. Schwartz Room
    Room 5.2.010
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Zeit: 11:00 to 12:00 a.m.

    Work-limiting disabilities pose a significant risk to the earnings potential and welfare of older workers. While coverage of public disability insurance (DI) systems is almost universal, the risk of becoming dependent on DI varies across occupations. In this paper, I study the value of public DI across different occupations using data from administrative social security records in Germany. I ...

    Meet My Family: the Effect of Female CEOs’ Newspaper Coverage on Financial Decision Making

    Speaker: Lavinia Kinne, Virginia Sondergeld
    Ort: Anna J. Schwartz Room
    Room 5.2.010
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Zeit: 14:30 bis 15:30 Uhr

    Newspaper coverage of firms’ CEOs is highly gendered. This presents a bias in itself but it might also have consequences for investments into the firm. In a survey experiment (N=tbd), we identify the causal impact of differential newspaper coverage for female and male CEOs on four outcomes: expected firm performance, investment into the firm, expected CEO ‘survival’, and expected performance in ...

    Room 5.2.010
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Zeit: 11:00 bis 12:00 Uhr

    Menopause marks a crucial juncture in women's lives and careers, coinciding with the peak of their income and working hours trajectory. On average, a third of women encounter severe health problems during this phase, exposing them to the risk of adverse labor market and health outcomes. Leveraging Norwegian registry data, coupled with panel data on doctor visits related to menopausal issues and ...

    The Church of Resistance – Religion and Protests in an Autocracy

    Speaker: Max Deter, Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg
    Ort: Karl Popper Room
    DIW Berlin
    Room 2.3.020
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Zeit: 11:00 bis 12:00 Uhr

    Mass protests have long been recognized as effective political actions, particularly in autocratic regimes where they serve as a potent tool for opposition movements. This paper examines the case of East Germany, specifically the Peaceful Revolution of 1989, which stands out as a rare example where protests successfully contributed to the democratization of an autocracy. The study focuses on the ...

    The Persistence of Employment Gaps in Couples: To what extent do relative female-to-male wage opportunities matter?

    Speaker: Luisa Hammer
    Ort: Karl Popper Room
    DIW Berlin
    Room 2.3.020
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Zeit: 11:00 bis 12:00 Uhr

    Gender gaps in employment have narrowed but remain substantial, especially within couples. When I proxy potential earnings through demand-driven wage changes in job tasks within industries and using German administrative data, I show that a rising relative female-to-male potential wage increases work hours of female partners, but at a diminishing rate. Men, on the other hand, reduce their work ...

    The Impact of Macroeconomic Conditions on Long-Term Care: Evidence on Prices, Provision, and Quality

    Room 2.3.020
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Zeit: 10:45 bis 11:45 Uhr

    In this paper we document how macroeconomic conditions affect the prices, provision, and quality of long-term care in Germany. We use a large administrative data set which contains rich information on all providers and the universe of recipients of long-term care. For the identification we exploit variation in the unemployment rate across regions and over time and use a panel data approach with ...

    A Star Was Born: How Workers Respond to Politically-Charged Job Postings (with Pawel Adrjan, Mária Balgová, Simon Jäger, and Jason Sockin)

    Speaker: Jonas Jessen
    Ort: Karl Popper Room
    DIW Berlin
    Room 2.3.020
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Zeit: 11:00 bis 12:00 Uhr

    While nouns in the German language are gendered toward males, the introduction of the "gender star" or "gender colon"' have allowed for nouns to be interpreted as not assigning gender, or non-binary. Their usage however has become highly politically polarizing. Using over 40 million online job postings from 2016 to 2023, we document the rising prevalence of the gender star and colon in the German ...

    Age-specific Effects of Early Daycare on Children's Health

    Speaker: Mara Barschkett
    Ort: Anna-J.-Schwartz-Raum
    DIW Berlin
    Room 5.2.010
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Zeit: 11:00 bis 12:00 Uhr

    Over the past decades, the share of very young children in daycare has increased significantly in many OECD countries, including Germany. Despite the relevance of child health for child development and later life success, the effect of early daycare attendance on health has received little attention in the economic literature. In this study, I investigate the impact of a large daycare expansion in ...

    Migration and native health: new evidence from employer-employee data

    Speaker: Izabela Wnuk
    Ort: Anna-J.-Schwartz-Raum
    DIW Berlin
    Room 5.2.010
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Zeit: 11:00 bis 12:00 Uhr

    This paper evaluates the effects of immigration on health in the workplace. Using rich linked employer-employee data, I demonstrate that firms with a higher concentration of foreign workers experience lower rates of long-term sick leave among native employees. The effect on the total sick rate is smaller in magnitude. The results are consistent with foreign employment alleviating understaffing and ...

    Room 2.3.020
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Zeit: 13:30 bis 14:30 Uhr

    This study examines how conditional aid eligibility influences students’ application behaviors using extensive data from the French national application platform, Admission Post Bac (APB). Employing a generalized difference-in differences approach, we analyze the impact of an exogenous change in the income threshold for financial aid eligibility. Our primary focus is on high-achieving students, a ...

    Stock market participation, remote work, and inequality

    Speaker: Lorenz Meister
    Ort: Ferdinand Friedensburg Room
    DIW Berlin
    Room 2.3.001
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Zeit: 11:00 bis 12:00 Uhr

    Stock market participation jumped upwards in Germany in the year 2020 by about 25%. A major cause for this was the enforced use of remote work. We show this by repeating a benchmark study with demanding data requests and adding remote work to the explanatory variables. Moreover, we implement an instrumental variables estimation based on commuting distance and work-from- home capacity. The ...

    Room 3.3.002a
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Zeit: 11:00 bis 12:00 Uhr

    Two significant drivers of a person's financial situation in old age are pension income and costs for long-term care dependence. Both are unknown when the person makes her most important financial decisions, which makes it particularly interesting to understand her beliefs about them and how they influence her choices. In a representative survey, we elicit detailed expectations about individuals’ ...

    Gender differences and stereotypes in media coverage of company board members

    Speaker: Virginia Sondergeld
    Ort: Joan Robinson Room

    Room 3.3.002a
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Zeit: 11:00 bis 12:00 Uhr

    Women continue to be underrepresented in leadership positions in the corporate sector such as on company boards. One of the reasons for this underrepresentation are gender stereotypes on the skill distribution, social and occupational roles, personality traits, and how they affect labor market decision making. Media plays an important role in transporting gender stereotypes. In this paper we ...

    Short-time Work vs. Unemployment: Gendered Differences in Labour Market Outcomes

    Speaker: Clara Schäper
    Ort: Ferdinand Friedensburg Room
    DIW Berlin
    Room 2.3.001
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Zeit: 11:00 bis 12:00 Uhr

    In the recent economic crises, Germany has made use of job retention schemes and in particular short-time work benefits ('Kurzarbeit') to tackle shocks in labor demand. Under these schemes, workers have not been laid off and received unemployment benefits, but reduced their working hours (or stopped working) for a limited amount of time while receiving short-time leave benefits. While the effect ...

    The Gender (Tax) Gap in Parental Transfers. Evidence from administrative inheritance and gift tax data.

    Speaker: Daria Tisch, Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies
    Ort: Anna J. Schwartz Room
    Room 5.2.010
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Zeit: 12:30 bis 13:30 Uhr

    This study examines how inheritance and gift tax systems in combination with gendered parental transfer behavior strengthen gender wealth inequalities. Gender differences in transfers can be reproduced if men benefit differently than women from tax exemptions. This might happen when men and women receive different types of assets where only some are tax exempted. To investigate gendered parental ...

    Increasing disability benefits: selection and labor market effects.

    Room 5.2.010
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Zeit: 11 bis 12 Uhr

    We study the incentive and labor market effects of disability benefit programs using unique policy variation in Germany. In 2014, disability benefits of new recipients were increased considerably while eligibility criteria were not changed. We exploit this quasi-experimental policy variation to test the implications at two different margins. First, we analyze to what extent an increase in the ...

    Zeit: 11 bis 12 Uhr

    This paper investigates the unique ways in which individuals assimilate new information into their beliefs about stock returns and examines the consequences of heterogeneous information processing on savings and investment decisions. Utilizing two exogenous information treatments from 2017 and 2018 surveys of German households, I discover that individuals' short-term return expectations shift by ...
