In recent years, there has been growing public and political opposition against the principle of free movement of labor within the European Union. Already before the first EU Eastern enlargement in 2004, potential adverse labor market effects for natives in the old EU Member States were widely discussed. Despite these discussions, there is little ex-post research on the impact of EU Eastern ...

This paper analyzes the impact of the German Parental Leave Reform on mothers' careers in the long run.

Using the total population of the Integrated Employment ...

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.

Care & Careers: Housework Distribution and Occupational Prestige

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 ...

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 ...

Mohrenstraße 58

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

Mohrenstraße 58

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 ...
