    Do Reservation Wages Really Decline? Some International Evidence on the Determinants of Reservation Wages

    Using cross-country data, we investigate the determinants of reservation wages and their course over the jobless spell. Higher unemployment benefits lead to higher reservation wages. Further, again consistent with the basic search model, repeated observations on the same individual provide scant evidence of declining reservation wages.

    Lags and Leads in Life Satisfaction: A Test of the Baseline Hypothesis

    We look for evidence of habituation in twenty waves of German panel data: do individuals, after life and labour market events, tend to return to some baseline level of well-being? Although the strongest life satisfaction effect is often at the time of the event, we find significant lag and lead effects. We cannot reject the hypothesis of complete adaptation to marriage, divorce, widowhood, birth of ...

    Wie wirken Änderungen von Pendlerpauschale und Werbungskostenpauschale? Ein Mikrosimulationsmodell

    Die vorliegende Arbeit dokumentiert ein neues Mikrosimulationsmodell für Werbungskosten, das im Auftrag des Bundesministeriums der Finanzen entwickelt wurde und das einige Schwierigkeiten bisheriger Werbungskostenmodelle durch Einsatz moderner statistischer Verfahren überwindet. Das neue Modell erweist sich als flexibles, leicht zu handhabendes Instrument zur Quantifizierung der kurzfristigen Aufkommens- ...

    Does Marriage Pay More than Cohabitation? Selection and Specialization Effects on Male Wages in Germany

    Empirical research has unambiguously shown that married men receive higher wages than unmarried, whereas a wage premium for cohabiters is not as evident yet. Our paper exploits the observed difference between the marital and the cohabiting wage premium in Germany and thus provides new insights into their respective sources, typically explained by specialization (husbands being more productive because ...

    Do Labour Market Institutions Matter? Micro-Level Wage Effects of International Outsourcing in Three European Countries

    This paper studies the impact of outsourcing on individual wages in three European countries with markedly different labour market institutions: Germany, the UK and Denmark. To do so we use individual level data sets for the three countries and construct comparable measures of outsourcing at the industry level, distinguishing outsourcing by broad region. Estimating the same specification on different ...

    Verbunden über Generationen: Struktur und Ausmaß der intergenerationalen Einkommensmobilität in Deutschland

    Das vorliegende Discussion Paper untersucht die Struktur und das Ausmaß der intergenerationalen Einkommensmobilität in Deutschland. Anhand der Daten des deutschen sozioökonomischen Panels ist es möglich, sowohl Vater-Sohn als auch Vater-Tochter Paare zu untersuchen. In einem ersten Schritt geschieht dies anhand einer Einkommensgleichung, die mittels OLS geschätzt wird. Für die Vater-Sohn Paare ergibt ...

    What Determines the Duration of Stay of Immigrants in Germany? Evidence from a Longitudinal Duration Analysis

    We analyze the return-migration of German immigrants using the latest data of the German Socio- Economic Panel from 1984 to 2006. We conduct a Cox proportional hazard model with years of residence in Germany as waiting time. The analysis reveals that return migration is heavily influenced by country of origin. Individuals from countries with free labor movement agreements with Germany show a ...

    Living Apart Together: eine eigenständige Lebensform?

    Living apart together (LAT) bezeichnet eine Form der Partnerschaft, bei der die beiden Partner in getrennten Haushalten wohnen, aber fest zusammenleben. Sie bleibt in den meisten sozialwissenschaftlichen Studien (z.B. Mikrozensus) unentdeckt, weil nur Partnerschaften innerhalb eines Haushalts untersucht werden. Das Sozio-oekonomische Panel (SOEP) bietet die einzigartige Möglichkeit, seit 1992 in ...

    Naturalization Proclivities, Ethnicity and Integration

    This paper studies the determinants of naturalization among Turkish and ex-Yugoslav immigrants in Germany differentiating between actual and planned citizenship. Using the German Socio-Economic Panel, we measure the impact that integration and ethnicity indicators exert on the probability to naturalize beyond the standard individual and human capital characteristics. A robust finding is that German ...

    Does Job Satisfaction Improve the Health of Workers? New Evidence Using Panel Data and Objective Measures of Health

    This paper evaluates the relationship between job satisfaction and measures of health of workers using the German Socio-Economic Panel (GSOEP). Methodologically, it addresses two important design problems encountered frequently in the literature: (a) cross-sectional causality problems and (b) absence of objective measures of physical health that complement self-reported measures of health status. Not ...

    Inequalities within Couples: Market Incomes and the Role of Taxes and Benefits in Europe

    In spite of there being few elements of tax or cash benefit systems in developed countries that are any longer explicitly gender-biased in a discriminatory sense, it is well recognised that they have significant gender effects. To the extent that women earn less than men on average under tax-benefit systems that are progressive, there is some redistribution from men to women overall. However, an aggregate ...

    Determinants of Child Care Participation

    When estimating the determinants of child care participation, the simultaneity in mothers' decision to work and in the decision to use child care is a major challenge. In this study, we provide evidence on the determinants of institutional child care use accounting for the endogeneity of mothers' labor supply by applying an instrumental variables approach. This endogeneity has been neglected in studies ...

    Patientenverfügungen in Deutschland: empirische Evidenz für die Jahre 2005 bis 2007

    Informationen zur Verbreitung von Patientenverfügungen in der Gesamtbevölkerung beruhen in Deutschland meist auf nicht-repräsentativen kleinen klinischen Stichproben und anekdotischer Evidenz. Aus wissenschaftlicher Sicht sind repräsentative Untersuchungen bedeutsam, die es neben der Deskription erlauben die Bedingungen zu untersuchen, unter denen Menschen, noch ehe sie persönlich betroffen sind, also ...

    The Impact of Participation in Sports on Educational Attainment: New Evidence from Germany

    We analyze the impact of exercising sports during childhood and adolescence on educational attainment. The theoretical framework is based on models of allocation of time and educational productivity. Using the rich information from the German Socio-Economic Panel (GSOEP), we apply generalized ordered probit models to estimate the effect of participation in sport activities on secondary school degrees ...

    What Determines the Demand for Occupational Pensions in Germany?

    Demographic change causes an undersupply of financial old age benefits within the statutory pay-as-you-go pension system in Germany. Therefore, the provision of occupational as well as private pensions has to be enhanced. However, there seems to be an undersupply of occupational pension provision particularly in small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs). Using survey data of the German Socio-Economic ...

    Die strukturelle und individuelle Dimension bei der Erklärung von regionaler Bildungsungleichheit

    Im Zentrum des vorliegenden Beitrags steht die Frage, ob regionale Strukturen als Determinante von Bildungschancen einen Beitrag zur Erklärung von Bildungsungleichheit leisten können. Es wird die Frage aufgeworfen, ob die elterlichen Bildungsentscheidungen an der Schwelle zum Sekundarsystem des schulischen Bildungssystems durch regionale Angebote und Bedingungen, wie die Bildungsinfra- und Ausbildungs- ...
