The New Top-Wealth Sample - First Impressions

Top-wealth holders are typically underrepresented or completely missing in population surveys. The lack of comprehensive national registers on high-wealth individuals in many countries challenged previous attempts to remedy this under-representation.

Coping with Life-Event Shocks: Psychological Determinants of Resilience

In this research we investigate the psychological determinants of resilience. Specifically, we observe whether the adaptation process to negative life events is different across the distribution of personality traits (the so-called big five) and of different life attitudes (such as locus of control and risk aversion).

2D:4D and Economic Preferences in a Large Representative Sample of Germans

Over the last decade, there has been a growing interest in the association between 2D:4D, a putative marker for prenatal testosterone exposure, and economic preferences. The results are mixed, and part of the inconclusiveness may come from the typically limited sample sizes as well as the many “researcher degrees of freedom” in the analysis. To firmly test if 2D:4D is associated
