The Well-Being Benefits of Person-Culture Match Are Contingent on Basic Personality Traits

People enjoy well-being benefits if their personal characteristics match those of their culture. This person-culture match effect is integral to many psychological theories and—as a driver of migration—carries much societal relevance.

Temps Dip Deeper: Temporary Employment and the Midlife Nadir in Human Well-Being

Temporary employees rank lower than permanent employees on various measures of mental and physical health, including well-being. In parallel, much research has shown that the relationship between age and well-being traces an approximate U-shape, with a nadir in midlife.

Ost- und Westdeutschland in der Corona-Krise: Nachwendegeneration im Osten erweist sich als resilient

Bei der Lebenszufriedenheit haben sich Ost-und Westdeutsche seit der Wiedervereinigung deutlich angenähert, wenn auch die in Ostdeutschland lebenden Menschen weiterhin weniger zufrieden sind als die in Westdeutschland. Die durch die Corona-Pandemie ausgelöste Krise könnte diese Annäherung nun umkehren. Untersuchungen auf Basis der SOEP-CoV-Befragung zeigen aber, dass dies nicht der Fall ist, gleichwohl ...

Millionaires under the Microscope: Data Gap on Top Wealth Holders Closed; Wealth Concentration Higher than Presumed

Individuals with assets in the millions of euros have been underrepresented in population surveys and accordingly little has been known about them. As a result, the full extent of wealth concentration in Germany was unknown. To close the existing data gap, the Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP) inte- grated a special sample in which individuals with high assets are overrepresented. New calculations using ...
