    Nonresponse Bias: Qualitätssicherung sozialwissenschaftlicher Umfragen
    Gemeinsame Tagung der Arbeitsgemeinschaft sozialwissenschaftlicher Institute (ASI e.V.) und der Sektion 'Methoden der Empirischen Sozialforschung' in der DGS

    Ort: Schumpeter Saal
    DIW Berlin im Quartier 110
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin

    Die Ausschöpfungsraten von sozialwissenschaftlichen Erhebungen in Deutschland befinden sich im Vergleich zur Situation vor 20 Jahren auf einem sehr niedrigen Niveau. Anspruchsvolle Umfragen mit genauer Überwachung des Feldes sowie kontrollierten Bruttostichproben erreichen aktuell selten eine bessere Ausschöpfung als etwa 35 %. Damit wird die Frage nach der Qualität dieser ...

    Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

    (joint with Charlotte Cabane and Michael Lechner) Previous studies on the effects of leisure activities on skill development do not discuss whether such activities are complements or substitutes. Comparing to which extent various extracurricular activities influence skill development brings us closer to understanding the formation of educational inequalities as well as the mechanisms behind skill ...

    Moving to diversity: residential mobility, changes in ethnic diversity and concerns about immigration

    Speaker: Bram Lancee & Merlin Schaeffer (WZB)
    Ort: Eleanor-Dulles-Raum
    DIW Berlin im Quartier 110
    Room 5.2.010
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Zeit: 12:30-13:30

    Studies on ethnic diversity and social cohesion are predominantly crosssectional and assume linearity, i.e. a steady, constant decline of social capital as ethnic diversity increases. Relying on longitudinal data from the German Socio-Economic Panel and applying a differences-in-differences design, the paper investigates how the event of moving to a more or less diverse neighbourhood affects ...

    Stress inducing or relieving? Retirement's causal effect on health

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

    This paper estimates the causal effect of retirement on health using Regression Discontinuity Design and instrumental variables. Age serves as an assignment variable for the RDD estimation and eligibility for a state pension is used as an instrument for retirement. Self-reported health status and the physical and mental sum-mary score of the SF12 measure are used as dependent variables. The ...

    Maternity Leave in the Context of Couples

    Speaker: Stefanie Hoherz (ISER, University of Essex)
    Ort: Eleanor-Dulles-Raum
    DIW Berlin im Quartier 110
    Room 5.2.010
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Zeit: 12:30-13:30

    The proposed research focuses on maternity leave duration and re-entry into full- and part-time employment for mothers in Germany. Numerous authors have investigated this subject in order to find out how women's characteristics, combined with family policies and the children's characteristics, influence the re-entries. However, these studies have been limited by their one-sided concentration on ...

An increasing number of SOEP users are focusing on themes of satisfaction and happiness in their analyses, and ...

    The effects of flexible working hours on German couples' wages

    Speaker: Laura Langner (Rienecker) (University of Oxford)
    Ort: Eleanor-Dulles-Raum
    DIW Berlin im Quartier 110
    Room 5.2.010
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Zeit: 12:30-13:30

    Working flexible hours is believed to increase an employee's productivity, which is claimed to result in higher wages. This enhancement of productivity is attributed to a reduction in work-life stress as well as to the employee's ability to work non-core hours. Despite these claims, there is no sufficient quantitative evidence as to whether this effect of flexible hours on wages exists. If ...

    Labor supply estimation with endogenous rationing. An application to the federal minimum wage in Germany

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

    This paper extends a standard static structural labor supply framework by taking labor demand constraints into account. Contrary to previous papers the rationing risk is not only determined by exogenous demand side factors, but also depends on the individual's productivity. The resulting labor supply elasticities from the extended framework differ from the unconstrained model. This approach is ...

    What is the effort for? Employment histories and incomes in later life in Europe

    Speaker: Katja Möhring (GK SOCLIFE, University of Cologne)

    Room 5.2.010
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Zeit: 12:30-13:30

    The income situation of the elderly population in modern welfare states is the result of an interplay of individual developments over the life course and the national institutional and policy framework. While achievements on the labor market generally are the basis for the economic status in retirement, their actual effect, however, may vary according to the specific national conditions related to ...

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

    Everyone is talking about public debt. Europe's economic and financial crisis is, not least, a crisis of sovereign and local government debt. In Germany, along with national and regional government debt, local authorities' obligations are also coming under the spotlight again. Using comprehensive data records, this study analyzes the debt structure of local German authorities from 1998 to 2009. In ...

    Natural Disaster, Policy Disaster, Policy Action, and Mental Well-Being: The Case of Fukushima

    Speaker: Asst. Prof. Dr. Nicolas R. Ziebarth, Cornell University, Christian Krekel, Jan Goebel

    Room 5.2.010
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

    We study the impact of the Fukushima disaster on people's mental distress in another industrialized country, 5500 miles away. The meltdown significantly increased environmental concerns by 25% among the German population. Subsequent drastic policy action permanently shut down the oldest nuclear reactors, implemented the phase-out of the remaining ones, and proclaimed the transition to renewables. ...

    Special: Maintained Individual Data Distributed Likelihood Estimation

    Speaker: Steven Boker (University of Virginia)
    Ort: Eleanor-Dulles-Raum

    Room 5.2.010
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

    Maintained Individual Data Distributed Likelihood Estimation (MIDDLE) is a new paradigm for the design and analysis of research in the behavioral, social, and health sciences. The MIDDLE approach is based on the seemingly-impossible idea that data can be privately maintained by participants and never revealed to researchers, while still enabling statistical models to be fit and scientific ...

    'Are We There Yet?' The Long Journey to a Mature Personality

    Room 5.2.010
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

    There is a long tradition assuming that personality is set like plaster. In recent years, a controversy arose about the appropriateness of the assumption that personality does not change after the age of 30 and is mainly influenced by genes. In this talk, I will focus on the questions of (a) when, (b) how, and (c) why personality changes in adulthood. Using data of the Big Five personality traits ...

    Education and time investment in children: Is Germany different?

    Speaker: Verena Lauber, Universität Konstanz
    Ort: Eleanor-Dulles-Raum

    Room 5.2.010
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

    Parental investment in terms of money and time is considered to be crucial for a child's development. Research on childcare, which is mainly based on US data, agrees that education has a positive impact on maternal caring time, despite the fact that high earning prospects increase the incentives for labor market participation. Given differences in the family support and other aspect of family ...

    This presentation investigates the response patterns of survey respondents who are asked for the name and address of their employer. Results are of interest for survey methodologists as information on employers is a sensitive piece of information which is difficult to ask for and which might endanger participation to surveys, especially for panel studies like the Socio-economic Panel (SOEP). ...
