    SOEP as a Source for Research on Ageing: Issues, Measures and Possibilities for Improvement

    Demographic change is a key consequence of the development of modern societies. The prolongation of life expectancy, shifts of mortality into later life and long-term low fertility rates cause essential changes in population structures - with an increase in the number and proportion of older people as a key feature. The changes in mortality patterns can be seen as a success of modern society. But demographic ...

    Dynamics of Poor Health and Non-employment

    While there is little doubt that the probability of poor health increases with age, and that less healthy people face a more difficult situation on the labour market, the precise relationship between facing the risks of health deterioration and labour market instability is not well understood. Using twelve years of data from the German Socio-Economic Panel we study the nature of the relationship between ...

    Other-Regarding Preferences, Spousal Disability and Happiness: Evidence from German Couples

    This paper considers the impact of adverse health shocks that hit an individual's partner on subjective well-being. Using data on couples from the German Socio-Economic Panel for the years 1984 to 2006, I compare the losses in well-being caused by own and spousal disability using panel-regressions. I find that women and to a lesser extent men are harmed by spousal disability which is consistent with ...

    Early Retirement and Inequality in Britain and Germany: How Important Is Health?

    Both health and income inequalities have been shown to be much greater in Britain than in Germany. One of the main reasons seems to be the difference in the relative position of the retired, who, in Britain, are much more concentrated in the lower income groups. Inequality analysis reveals that while the distribution of health shocks is more concentrated among those on low incomes in Britain, early ...

    Measurement of Health, the Sensitivity of the Concentration Index, and Reporting Heterogeneity

    Using representative survey data from the German Socio-Economic Panel Study (SOEP) for 2006, we show that the magnitude of such health inequality measures as the concentration index (CI) depends crucially on the underlying health measure. The highest degree of inequality is found when dichotomized subjective health measures like health satisfaction or self-assessed health (SAH) are employed. Measures ...

    Langzeitkranke verlieren durch Kürzung des Krankengeldes fünf Milliarden Euro

    Am 1. Januar 1997 trat eine Krankengeldkürzung von 80 auf 70 Prozent des Bruttoeinkommens in Kraft. Ab der siebten Woche erhalten gesetzlich Versicherte Krankengeld, sie gelten als langzeitkrank. Berechnungen auf Basis des Sozio-oekonomischen Panels (SOEP) zeigen, dass durch diese Maßnahme innerhalb von zehn Jahren rund fünf Milliarden Euro von den Langzeitkranken zugunsten der übrigen Versicherten ...
