    Every Man for Himself! Gender, Norms and Survival in Maritime Disasters
    Leibniz Seminar für Arbeitsmarktforschung (BeNA)

    Speaker: Mikael Elinder, Uppsala University
    Ort: Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin
    Room 125
    Spandauer Str. 1
    10178 Berlin
    Zeit: 6.30 - 8.00 pm

    Abstract: Since the sinking of the Titanic, there has been a widespread belief that the social norm of ‘women and children first' gives women a survival advantage over men in maritime disasters, and that captains and crew give priority to passengers. We analyze a database of 18 maritime disasters spanning three centuries, covering the fate of over 15,000 individuals of more than 30 ...

    In absolute or relative terms? How framing prices affects the consumer price sensitivity of health plan choice
    Leibniz Seminar für Arbeitsmarktforschung (BeNA)

    Speaker: Nicolas R. Ziebarth (Cornell University)
    Ort: Berliner Büro des RWI
    Hessische Straße 10
    10115 Berlin
    Zeit: 6.30 - 8.00 pm

    Abstract:This paper provides field evidence on (a) how price framing affects consumers' decision to switch health insurance plans and (b) how the price elasticity of demand for health insurance can be influenced by policymakers through simple regulatory efforts. In 2009, in order to foster competition among health insurance companies, German federal regulation required health insurance companies ...

    The Generalized Roy Model and The Cost-Benefit Analysis of Social Programs

    Speaker: Philipp Eisenhauer (ZEW Mannheim)
    Ort: Eleanor-Dulles-Raum
    DIW Berlin im Quartier 110
    Room 5.2.010
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Zeit: 16:30-17:30

    The standard analysis of treatment effects only considers the gross benefit of treatment and does not consider the cost as perceived by the agents or the surplus arising from participation in programs (the private subjective evaluation of the program). This paper extends the analysis of Heckman and Vytlacil (1999, 2005) to identify parameters measuring the costs and net gains of arising from ...

    The effect of unemployment on the mental health of spouses - Evidence from plant closures in Germany
    Leibniz Seminar für Arbeitsmarktforschung (BeNA)

    Speaker: Jan Marcus
    Ort: Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin
    Room 125
    Spandauer Str. 1
    10178 Berlin
    Zeit: 6.30-8.00 pm

    Abstract:Previous studies on the health effects of unemployment neglect spillover effects on spouses. This study estimates the effect of one spouse's unemployment on the mental health of the other spouse. In order to give the estimates a causal interpretation, this study focuses on an exogenous entry into unemployment (plant closure), and combines matching based on entropy balancing and difference ...

    Quality Upgrading and Price Heterogeneity: Evidence from Brazilian Exporters
    Leibniz Seminar für Arbeitsmarktforschung (BeNA)

    Speaker: Lisandra Flach, University of Mannheim
    Ort: Wissenschaftszentrum Berlin
    Raum B002/3
    Reichpietschufer 50
    10785 Berlin

    Abstract:This paper studies the relation between quality upgrading and pricing across firms and destination countries. The paper builds a model based on heterogeneous firms that set quality and prices to heterogeneous consumers. To test the predictions of this model, the paper uses a uniquely rich data that combines producer quality information and exporter prices by firm and destination country. ...

    Flexibilisation without Hesitation? Temporary Contracts and Workers' Satisfaction
    Leibniz Seminar für Arbeitsmarktforschung (BeNA)

    Speaker: Clemens Hetschko (FU Berlin)
    Ort: Berliner Büro des RWI
    Hessische Straße 10
    10115 Berlin
    Zeit: 6.30 - 8.00 pm

    Abstract: Labour market flexibilisation has long been considered a key policy tool for increasing employment. However, sceptics argue that workers suffer from labour market flexibilisation. While empirically investigating the psychological costs of temporary contracts, we question this argument for one flexibilisation instrument. We test whether temporary contracts are associated with different ...

    Labor supply of mothers with young children: Validating a structural model using a natural experiment

    Speaker: Katharina Wrohlich
    Ort: Eleanor-Dulles-Raum
    DIW Berlin im Quartier 110
    Room 5.2.010
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Zeit: 12:00-13:00

    In this paper we estimate an intertemporal structural model of labor supply for mothers with young children. In order to validate the structural model, we make use of a recently introduced parental leave reform in Germany. We compare the behavioral predictions of the structural model under the reform (out-of-sample fit) to results based on an evaluation of the parental leave reform as a natural ...

    Effects of changes in student composition on teacher mobility. Evidence from the admission reform

    Speaker: Krzysztof Karbownik (Uppsala University)
    Ort: Eleanor-Dulles-Raum
    DIW Berlin im Quartier 110
    Room 5.2.010
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Zeit: 12:30-13:30

    This paper examines teacher job mobility using matcher employee-employer panel data from Stockholm municipality upper secondary schools. I utilize the exogenous change in upper secondary school admission which led to the sharp reshuffling of students within the municipality. This quasi experimental set up provides a unique opportunity to investigate the relationship between changes in student ...

    Risks and Returns to Educational Fields - A financial asset approach to vocational and academic education

    Speaker: Johanna Storck
    Ort: Eleanor-Dulles-Raum
    DIW Berlin im Quartier 110
    Room 5.2.010
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Zeit: 12:30-13:30

    Applying a financial assets approach, we investigate the risks and returns to investments into different types of human capital. Even so the returns from investing in human capital have expensively been studied, little is known about the properties of the return to different types of human capital. Using information from the German Micro Census, we estimate the risk and returns to around 70 ...

    The Dynamics of Earnings in Germany: Evidence from Social Security Records

    Speaker: Holger Lüthen
    Ort: Eleanor-Dulles-Raum
    DIW Berlin im Quartier 110
    Room 5.2.010
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Zeit: 12:30-13:30

    We examine patterns of earnings volatility for male employees who are subject to statutory social security contributions in West Germany over the period 1986 - 2005. For this purpose, we analyse individual records covering highly reliable earnings biographies provided by the German Social Security Administration. We decompose earnings into permanent and transitory components and estimate ...

    When can we trust population thresholds in regression discontinuity designs

    Speaker: Florian Ade, Ronny Freier
    Ort: Eleanor-Dulles-Raum
    DIW Berlin im Quartier 110
    Room 5.2.010
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Zeit: 12:30-13:30

    A recent literature uses variation just around legislative population thresholds to identify causal effects of institutional changes. We review the use of regression discontinuity designs using such thresholds. Our concern is threefold: (1) simultaneous exogenous (co-)treatment, (2) simultaneous endogenous choices and (3) manipulation and precise control over population measures. Revisiting the ...
