The Effect of Air Quality Alerts on School Absenteeism - Evidence from New York City

Speaker: Luis Sarmiento
Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

This study examines the relationship between air quality alerts and school absenteeism in New York City. Examining the effects of the alerts in school attendance is relevant because it helps us understand parents' avoidance behavior in situations of exacerbated exposure to air contaminants. Causality arises by exploiting the deterministic nature of the alerts with regression discontinuity ...

We combine unique data that include all practitioner health diagnoses based on the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-10) collected from all publicly insured individuals in Germany with a sizable cohort specific pension reform to study the causal effect of an increase in the retirement age on health. For the analysis, we use a cohort specific regression discontinuity design. The data ...

Speaker: Jörg Claussen, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München
Ort: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
Zeit:
13:15 - 14:30

Abstract:  User generated content is increasingly substituting content created by professionals.

We study a network of 122 local Austrian newspapers operating a hybrid model of citizen and professional journalism. We first ...

Summary:  This talk will provide a survey of several papers on the theory and practice of experimental design. I will compare different objectives (estimator precision, outcomes of participants, informing policy choice to maximize average outcomes, and informing policy choice to maximize utilitarian welfare), and their implications for experimental design. I will consider heuristic ...

Decomposition of Gender Pension Gaps Across Europe from a life-course perspective – preliminary drafts from sequence data analysis and Blinder-Oaxaca-Decompositions

Ort: Anna J. Schwartz Room
Room 5.2.010
Mohrenstraße 58
10117 Berlin
Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

My master thesis compares the impact of different life-courses on the Gender Pension Gaps across East and West Germany, Czechia and Italy. Using retrospective data on the dimensions of work and family from SHARELIFE, I contrast two different approaches. The first applies sequence data analysis to identify work-family life course patterns across all four countries as a first step, and includes ...

Optimal Benefit-Based Corporate Income Tax

Speaker: Simon Naitram, University of the West Indies, Cave Hill
Ort: Anna J. Schwartz Room
Room 5.2.010
Mohrenstraße 58
10117 Berlin
Zeit: 13:15 - 14:30

Abstract:   I derive an optimal benefit-based corporate tax rate formula as a function of the public input elasticity of profits and the (net of) tax elasticity of profits. I argue that the existence of the corporate income tax should be justified by the benefit-based view of taxation: firms should pay tax according to the benefits they receive from the use of the public input. I argue that ...

Speaker: Daniel Graeber
Ort: Anna J. Schwartz Room

Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

We estimate the effect of a sudden increase in the inflow of refugees on the native population’s mental health in Germany and Swiss. To identify the effect of the sudden influx of refugees to Germany and Swiss, we exploit the quasi-random allocation of the number of refugees to counties in Germany and Swiss. For Germany, we make use of the Socio-Economic Panel. For Swiss, we use individual ...

A firm-side perspective on parental leave

Speaker: Mathias Huebener
Ort: Anna J. Schwartz Room
Room 5.2.010
Mohrenstraße 58
10117 Berlin
Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

A large literature documents effects of parental leave on mothers' labour market outcomes, yet we know very little about the effects on their  firms and co-workers. We use unique administrative data that covers the universe of employees subject to social security and firms in Germany to address this question. We first establish some novel stylised facts in parental leave-taking  with ...

Knowledge Spillover and Individual Careers

Speaker: Thomas Cornelissen, University of York
Ort: Anna J. Schwartz Room
Room 5.2.010
Mohrenstraße 58
10117 Berlin
Zeit: 13:15 - 14:30

Abstract: Through social interaction in the workplace, coworkers are likely to learn from each other (knowledge spillover) and this may extend the returns to firm-provided training from trained workers onto untrained coworkers. Based on German matched-employer employee data covering the universe of employees we investigate whether unskilled workers derive long-term career benefits if they were ...

The effect of xenophobic attacks on refugees’ mental health

Speaker: Felicitas Schikora
Ort: Anna J. Schwartz Room
Room 5.2.010
Mohrenstraße 58

Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

The high prevalence of forced migration in recent years has induced a shift in attitudes towards immigrants and refugees and, in turn, increasing xenophobic violence. We address this topic and estimate the effect of xenophobic attacks against refugee shelters on refugees’ mental health. For this purpose, we combine two innovative data sets: administrative records on xenophobic crime by ...

Speaker: Aline Zucco
Ort: Anna J. Schwartz Room

Mohrenstraße 58

Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

Occupational positions can explain an important part of the differences in pay between men and women. However, a considerable Gender Pay Gap exists even within the same occupational position. In this paper, we aim at understanding the reason for the gap within occupational positions and, therefore, investigate whether promotions lead to the same effect on earnings growth for men and women. ...
