Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

This paper exploits unexpected regional changes in fees to uncover the causal effect on the duration of study and completion probabilities for an entire country. The empirical analysis relies on a novel empirical framework that merges difference-in-difference estimation with duration analysis to exploit a natural policy experiment, namely the introduction and terminationof fees for university ...

The Effect of Parental Leave Policies in Frictional Labor Markets

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

I analyze the impact of labor market risks on fertility and female labor supply in a dynamic structural life-cycle model. In particular, I provide insights on whether parental leave policies, such as legal job protection periods, can mitigate these risks. To this end, I estimate a dynamic discrete choice model, using a rich German panel dataset, for the time period between 2007 and 2013. ...

Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

Since the 2001 reform of the disability pension in Germany, occupational invalidity does no longer qualify for a pension. While before the reform the incapability to work in the former job was sufficient for a pension claim, the new regulations require an incapability to work at all. Yet, cohorts born before 1961 have been exempted from the reform to protect their confidence in former legislation. ...

Labor Market Responses to Tax Reforms

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

In a high-tax labor market like France, tax reductions are a popular tool to support employment of low-wage workers. The welfare implications of these exemptions go beyond the directly affected. We ask three questions. First, because employment and wages are determined by both supply and demand of labor, what are the equilibrium effects of tax reductions on different workers? Second, since policy ...

Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

We provide direct field evidence that, even though the Hungarian college admissions process uses a strategically simple assignment mechanism, a large fraction of the applicants employ a dominated strategy. These applicants make obvious mistakes: they forgo the option for a tuition waiver worth thousands of dollars, even though this behavior has no benefit. In many cases, applicants would have ...

The effect of parental education on the offspring's mental health

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

We are the first to estimate the causal effect of parental education on a wide range of the adult offspring's mental health outcomes. Theoretical considerations predict positive direct and indirect effects of parental education on the offspring's mental health. But the relation between parental education and mental health outcomes is plagued by endogeneity. To circumvent this problem, we exploit ...

Die Elterngeld-Reform ist eine der bedeutendsten familienpolitischen Reformen der letzten Jahrzehnte. So hat das Elterngeld die wirtschaftliche Situation vieler Familienhaushalte verbessert und das Erwerbsverhalten insbesondere von Müttern verändert. Allerdings gibt es Unterschiede. In einer neuen Analyse des DIW Berlin, die im Wochenbericht am 28. Juni erscheint, werden die Auswirkungen ...

Facing an aging population, many societies discuss policies to prolong work lives. At the individual level, such policies could affect social connectedness in several ways. On the one hand, prolonged work lives could promote a healthier social life at advanced ages by maintaining job-related networks for longer. On the other hand, retirement might boost quantity and quality of social networks by ...

Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

We use social security records to document the heterogeneity in life expectancy by lifetime earnings for West Germany and we analyze how this longevity gap has evolved over cohorts. In line with previous studies, we provide evidence that the earnings-related longevity gap is increasing over cohorts. We then propose a decomposition to disentangle the role of the increasing earnings inequality over ...

Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

Early education has increasingly been prioritised within OECD countries’ policy agenda, with a growing focus on early education’s potential to narrow the social class gaps in child development. The positive impact of early provision depends upon a number of factors, however – including the influence of the peers with whom a child interacts. Emerging evidence suggests that peers ...
