Health Effects of Prenatal and Infancy Home Visiting Programs by Nurses: Evidence from a Randomized Control Trial

Speaker: Gabriella Conti, University College London
Ort: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
Zeit: 13:15 - 14:30

Home visiting programmes are increasingly being implemented across the globe to help vulnerable families with young children, however longer-term experimental evidence on their health impacts on both parents and children is scarce. In this paper we study the medium-term health impacts of a randomized control trial to evaluate the Nurse Family Partnership (NFP), one of the oldest home visitation ...

Culture, Children and Couple Gender Inequality

Speaker: Jonas Jessen
Ort: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

This paper examines how culture determines within-couple gender inequality. Exploiting the setting of Germany's division and reunification, I compare child penalties of couples socialised in a more gender-egalitarian culture to those in a gender-traditional culture. The long-run penalty on the female income share is 30.9% in West German couples, compared to 18.3% in East German couples. ...

Who is affected by the crisis? Distributional consequences of the Corona pandemic

Speaker: Maximilian Stockhausen, German Economic Institute - IW Köln
Ort: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

The Corona pandemic has had a decisive impact on the year 2020 and an unprecedented (negative) impact on society and the economy. At the core of this simulation study is therefore the question of how the Corona pandemic has affected income levels and social inequality in Germany, and to what extent automatic stabilizers of the social security system and additional financial aid measures ...

Responses to unexpected and permanent changes in pension income

Speaker: Sebastian Becker
Ort: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

For the design of pension reform it is crucial to disentangle the employment effects related to the substitution and the income effect. In this paper we provide causal evidence about the importance of the income effect which in general has been assumed to be small or non-existent. We exploit a pension reform in Germany that raised pension benefits related to children. For the ...

A Mega-Analysis of Personality Prediction: Robustness and Boundary Conditions

Speaker: Emorie Beck, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine
Ort: Cisco Webex
Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

Decades of studies identify personality traits as an important predictor of life outcomes. However, previous investigations of personality-outcome associations have not taken a principled approach to covariate use or other sampling strategies to ensure the robustness of personality-outcome associations. The result is that it is unclear (1) whether ...

Gentrification and Rent Control

Speaker: Niklas Gohl
Ort: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

Since the start of the century, particularly in urban centres, housing markets worldwide have experienced stark price and rent increases. As a consequence urban agglomerations have experienced strong changes in their neighbourhood composition with originally poorer, central areas gentrifying quickly. Governments have reacted by raising the topic of affordable housing on the political ...

Informal care, work and retirement - choices in conflict? A structural model

Speaker: Björn Fischer
Ort: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

This paper estimates a structural dynamic discrete choice model on parental care provision, retirement and labor supply. We want to estimate the dynamic consequences of providing informal care or organizing formal care for care dependent parents. While there might be negative long term consequences on wages and retirement benefits, agents might respond to incentives in the long term care ...

Irrational Attention to Correlation in Selected Data

Speaker: Annekatrin Schrenker
Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

It is very rare that the causal link between actions and outcomes can be observed directly. Often, it is much easier to observe correlation. To derive causality from correlation, economists use elaborate techniques. However, little is known about individuals’ capabilities to infer from correlational data in their everyday lives. I test if individuals erroneously infer causality ...

Long-Term Effects of Equal Sharing: Evidence from Inheritance Rules for Land

Speaker: Charlotte Bartels
Ort: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

What are the long-term economic effects of a more equal distribution of wealth? We exploit variation in historical inheritance rules for land traversing political, linguistic, geological, and religious borders in Germany. In some German areas, inherited land was to be shared or divided equally among children, while in others land was ruled to be indivisible. Using a geographic regression ...

Early retirement of employees in demanding jobs: evidence from a German pension reform

Speaker: Johannes Geyer
Ort: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

Workers in demanding jobs may be particularly negatively affected by an increasing statutory retirement age. We exploit a pension reform that raised the early retirement age of women from 60 to 63 years in Germany. Based on a large administrative social security data set we exploit the quasi-natural experiment using a regression-discontinuity approach. We find the same relative employment ...

Gender Bias in Justice of Earnings and Gender of Supervisor. Evidence from a Factorial Survey Experiment

Speaker: Anja Kirsch (FU Berlin), Carsten Sauer (Zeppelin University Friedrichshafen), Jule Adriaans, Katharina Wrohlich
Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

There are persisting wage inequalities between men and women. These gender differences in wages are also reflected in gender differences in the justice evaluation of earnings. Women – even though structurally disadvantaged – evaluate their own wages more positively (“contented female worker paradox”) and at the same time both men and women show a gender bias in ...

Internet Use and Job Matching in Germany

Speaker: Giorgia Menta and Sonia Schifano (University of Luxembourg, guest researcher at SOEP)
Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

We here assess the impact of DSL internet access on a set of labour market outcomes of working-age individuals in Germany between 2008 and 2012. Assuming internet access improves the quality of employer-employee matching by reducing search costs, we focus on indicators of job quality: the working hours mismatch, job satisfaction, and the probability of changing job. We draw from Falck ...

The Effect of Air Quality Alerts on School Absenteeism - Evidence from New York City

Speaker: Luis Sarmiento
Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

This study examines the relationship between air quality alerts and school absenteeism in New York City. Examining the effects of the alerts in school attendance is relevant because it helps us understand parents' avoidance behavior in situations of exacerbated exposure to air contaminants. Causality arises by exploiting the deterministic nature of the alerts with regression discontinuity ...

Abstract:   Our research question is to what extent does the familiarity with the testing environment impact the relative performance of boys and girls in standardized testing. We use an RCT-design on the full population of students in Grade 6 and 10 across several subjects in the Region of Madrid (Spain). This standardized test was either "Externally" administered, meaning that teachers ...

The link between family networks and mental health for exogamous couples in old age

Speaker: Chia Liu, Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research & University of St. Andrews
Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

In later life, social ties become increasingly important for one’s mental health. In this study, we test whether exogamous unions, in which one of the partner is migrant and one native, affect older individual’s social networks, and whether the association between exogamy and mental health operates through social networks. We hypothesize that immigrants gain social capital ...
