Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

The role of personality traits in the production of social inequality has increasingly been the subject of sociological inquiry. Conscientiousness, in particular, has proven to be an important predictor of educational achievement and occupational attainment. The importance of conscientiousness in predicting unequal outcomes in the life course leads to the question of whether differences in this ...

Zeit: 12:30-13:30

In this study we investigate the impact of the thin capitalization rule (TCR) introduced in Germany in 2008 on firms; capital structure, investment and profitability. Since all firms are better off by avoiding the TCR, this means analyzing firms; behavior to avoid the TCR. The identification of the causal effects is based on the escape clauses in the regulation using a difference-in-difference ...

Zur Ausschöpfung des Potentials von Paneldaten bedarf es der Anwendung spezifischer Methoden. In einschlägigen methodischen Publikation werden dabei solche Analyseinstrumente als geeignet verhandelt, welche die Längsschnittinformation der Daten durch Transformationen isolieren, wie Fixed Effects oder First Differences. Trotzdem zeigen (Meta-) Untersuchungen zur Methodenwahl in ...

Despite the introduction of major social policy reforms, since the mid-1980s Germany has been experiencing a steady increase in poverty rates among general population. It gave a boost to a great number of studies trying to explain why it happened. By applying decomposition techniques they have been exploring what kind of changes in household structures and labor market conditions of households ...

In absolute or relative terms? How framing prices affects the consumer price sensitivity of health plan choice
Leibniz Seminar für Arbeitsmarktforschung (BeNA)

Speaker: Nicolas R. Ziebarth (Cornell University)
Ort: Berliner Büro des RWI
Hessische Straße 10
10115 Berlin
Zeit: 6.30 - 8.00 pm

Abstract:This paper provides field evidence on (a) how price framing affects consumers' decision to switch health insurance plans and (b) how the price elasticity of demand for health insurance can be influenced by policymakers through simple regulatory efforts. In 2009, in order to foster competition among health insurance companies, German federal regulation required health insurance companies ...

Day care (quality) and differences in child outcomes

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

Studies in recent years show that universal child care has a beneficial impact on children‘s outcomes (e.g., Havnes/Mogstad 2009, 2011, Datta‐Gupta/Simonsen 2010, 2011). However evidence remains mixed on whether all types of day care attendance have a positive effect on children's development.  Some papers show that day care attendance can also negatively influence child ...

The Generalized Roy Model and The Cost-Benefit Analysis of Social Programs

DIW Berlin im Quartier 110
Room 5.2.010
Mohrenstraße 58

Zeit: 16:30-17:30

The standard analysis of treatment eff ects only considers the gross benefi t of treatment and does not consider the cost as perceived by the agents or the surplus arising from participation in programs (the private subjective evaluation of the program). This paper extends the analysis of Heckman and Vytlacil (1999, 2005) to identify parameters measuring the costs and net gains of arising from ...

The effect of unemployment on the mental health of spouses - Evidence from plant closures in Germany
Leibniz Seminar für Arbeitsmarktforschung (BeNA)

Speaker: Jan Marcus
Ort: Humboldt Universität Berlin
Room 125
Spandauer Str. 1

Zeit: 6.30-8.00 pm

Abstract:Previous studies on the health effects of unemployment neglect spillover effects on spouses. This study estimates the effect of one spouse's unemployment on the mental health of the other spouse. In order to give the estimates a causal interpretation, this study focuses on an exogenous entry into unemployment (plant closure), and combines matching based on entropy balancing and difference ...

Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

There has been a recent shift in Political Science towards integratingaggregate-level contextual factors into the study of individual-levelpolitical behaviors. while intriguing, findings are inconsistent andthis research area is bereft of theoretical underpinnings. Theunderlying idea that drives my dissertation is that civic andpolitical participation are, at least partially, a response toeconomic ...

Labor supply of mothers with young children: Validating a structural model using a natural experiment

Speaker: Katharina Wrohlich

DIW Berlin im Quartier 110
Room 5.2.010
Mohrenstraße 58
10117 Berlin
Zeit: 12:00-13:00

In this paper we estimate an intertemporal structural model of labor supply for mothers with young children. In order to validate the structural model, we make use of a recently introduced parental leave reform in Germany. We compare the behavioral predictions of the structural model under the reform (out-of-sample fit) to results based on an evaluation of the parental leave reform as a natural ...

Room 2.3.001
Mohrenstraße 58

Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

The study deals with the inclusion of inter-personal inequality in multidimensional poverty indices. Inter-personal inequality is usually equated with association among poverty dimensions, i.e. whether a substitute, complement, or independent relationship exists among the poverty dimensions in question. The equation produced a situation where the existence of simultaneous deprivations serves as ...

This paper examines teacher job mobility using matcher employee-employer panel data from Stockholm municipality upper secondary schools. I utilize the exogenous change in upper secondary school admission which led to the sharp reshuffling of students within the municipality. This quasi experimental set up provides a unique opportunity to investigate the relationship between changes in student ...

This project uses the German reunification to study how social change impacts two aspects of women's family formation: standardization - the degree to which women's family formation is similar, and pluralization - the development of new family formation patterns. In view of the Second Demographic Transition (SDT), institutional, economic, and ideational explanations for family behavior are ...

This paper is the first to analyze intergenerational economic mobility based on sibling correlations in permanent economic outcomes in Germany and to provide a cross-country comparison of Germany, Denmark, and the US. The main findings are as follows: the importance of family and community background in Germany is higher than in Denmark and comparable to that in the US. This holds true for ...

Zeit: 12:30-13:30

Applying a financial assets approach, we investigate the risks and returns to investments into different types of human capital. Even so the returns from investing in human capital have expensively been studied, little is known about the properties of the return to different types of human capital. Using information from the German Micro Census, we estimate the risk and returns to around 70 ...

We examine patterns of earnings volatility for male employees who are subject to statutory social security contributions in West Germany over the period 1986 - 2005.

We decompose earnings into permanent and transitory components and estimate ...

Is health a predictor of job loss and high status attainment? A gender sensitive approach to health selection on the labor market

Speaker: Hannes Neiss
Ort: Gustav-Schmoller-Raum
DIW Berlin im Quartier 110
Room 3.3.002A
Mohrenstraße 58
10117 Berlin
Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

Health effects on the labor market have most often been assessed using wage as the outcome variable. I estimate health effects on involuntary job loss and attainment of a high status position to see if health has an impact beyond wages. Using SOEP data and controlling for a wide range of human capital and non-labor-market constraints to capture indirect health selection I can show that there are ...

When can we trust population thresholds in regression discontinuity designs

Speaker: Florian Ade, Ronny Freier

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

A recent literature uses variation just around legislative population thresholds to identify causal effects of institutional changes. We review the use of regression discontinuity designs using such thresholds. Our concern is threefold: (1) simultaneous exogenous (co-)treatment, (2) simultaneous endogenous choices and (3) manipulation and precise control over population measures. Revisiting the ...
