Birth Cohort Size Variation and the Estimation of Class Size Effects

Speaker: Maximilian Bach
Ort: Karl Popper Room
DIW Berlin
Room 2.3.020
Mohrenstr. 58
10117 Berlin
Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

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 ...

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 ...

Care & Careers: Housework Distribution and Occupational Prestige

Speaker: Claire Samtleben, Kai-Uwe Müller
Ort: Anna J. Schwartz Room
Room 5.2.010
Mohrenstraße 58
10117 Berlin
Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

Despite increasing female labor market participation over the past decades care duties are hardly been shared more equally within couples. We challenge existing approaches (time availability theory, relative resources approach) on the formation of care arrangements with the human capital theory focusing on the consequences of an unequal distribution of housework. We argue that couples make ...

Training Participation with Increasing Working Horizons: Evidence from a German Pension Reform

Speaker: Elisabeth Kurz
Ort: Karl Popper Room
DIW Berlin
Room 2.3.020
Mohrenstr. 58
10117 Berlin
Zeit: 12:30-13:30

Investments into the human capital of (older) individuals—by employees, governments and especially firms—are expected to depend on the remaining working horizon of individuals. Thus, with the anticipation of shifts in retirement ages due to pension reforms, an increase in training participation rates should be expected. As training increases the employability of older individuals, this ...

Fertility as a Driver of Maternal Employment

Mohrenstraße 58
10117 Berlin
Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

Based on findings of an extensive empirical literature that mainly stem from high- income countries, economists often hypothesize that having more children, especially young ones, unambiguously decreases the time mothers spend in the labor market. Re- search on middle- and low-income countries is scarce, despite of several interesting aspects that are common to these countries and that potentially ...

The effect of exposure to STEM in secondary school on field of study choice

Speaker: Roxanne Korthals

DIW Berlin im Quartier 110
Room 5.2.010
Mohrenstraße 58
10117 Berlin
Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

The choice for a field of study has large consequences on later labor market outcomes. However, in absence of liberal arts and sciences bachelors, field of study choice is often made quite early: either in secondary school or at the start of university. A growing literature shows that information about (direct or indirect through exposure) affects students’ field of study choices. We ...

Teacher incentives and grade retention

Speaker: Maximilian Bach

Mohrenstraße 58
10117 Berlin
Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

This paper provides a simple framework to test whether teachers strategically retain students in the first grade of primary school in order to minimize the number of students in their class for grades 2-4. I build a model in which classes are subject to a class size cap and teachers can choose to retain students if their performance falls below an academic threshold. The key prediction, borne out ...

Mohrenstraße 58

Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

This paper analyzes employment effects of a policy reform that was introduced as a measure for targeted integration of foreigners into local labor markets in Germany. The Residence Rule puts additional constraints on initial residence decisions for refugees after having received a permanent residence permit. Given that this reform applies to a subset of refugees only, it creates exogenous ...

We test the predictions of the Roy-Model about the self-selection of immigrants using an administrative dataset including about 90 % of Italians living abroad. The data comprises 13 countries with substantial differences in inequality and levels of redistribution: Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, France, Great-Britain, Germany, The Netherlands, New-Zealand, Switzerland, the US, and ...

Hurricanes, nightlights and the elusive comparative advantage of offshore finance

Mohrenstraße 58

Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

A number of small offshore jurisdictions exhibit disproportionally large international capital positions. According to governments of these jurisdictions, such positions are (a) the result of a comparative advantage in providing financial services internationally and (b) improve welfare in these jurisdictions. I use the natural experiment of re-occuring hurricanes to test if (a) the capital ...

Positive Effects of Class Size Reductions on Student Achievement in Germany

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

Using a unique dataset on the full student population of 3rd graders in the German state Saarland, we exploit plausibly random variation in class size between cohorts within the same school to estimate the effect of class size on student achievement. Conventional estimates of class size effects are shown to be severely biased by systematic sorting of students between and within schools. Correcting ...
