What Can Happiness Research Tell Us about Altruism? Evidence from the German Socio-Economic Panel

Much progress has been made in recent years on developing and applying a direct measure of utility using survey questions on subjective well-being. In this paper we explore whether this new type of measurement can be fruitfully applied to the study of interdependent utility in general, and altruism between parents and children in particular. We introduce an appropriate econometric methodology and, ...

Geburt eines Kindes erhöht die Lebenszufriedenheit der Mütter nur kurzfristig: geringe Lebenszufriedenheit insbesondere bei türkischen Müttern

Erwerbsmuster und Lebenszufriedenheit der in Deutschland lebenden Mütter unterscheiden sich erheblich nach der Herkunft. Im Fokus steht hier der Vergleich der Situation zwischen Müttern türkischer und sonstiger nichtdeutscher Herkunft sowie ost- und westdeutschen Müttern. Türkische Mütter weisen die geringste Erwerbsbeteiligung auf; ostdeutsche Mütter sind dagegen am häufigsten nach der Geburt ihres ...

Modelling Inflation Dynamics in Transition Economies: The Case of Ukraine

The paper explores dynamics of inflation in Ukraine in the period of relative macroeconomic stability. The analysis of interrelationship between inflation, money growth, wage growth, and a proxy for devaluation expectations is based on impulse responses and variance decomposition of a vector autoregression model. We find that changes in devaluation expectations appear to be the most important factor ...

Gender-Job Satisfaction Differences across Europe: An Indicator for Labor Market Modernization

In 14 member states of the European Union, women's relative to men's levels of job satisfaction are compared by using data of the European Household Community Panel. The countries under consideration can be assigned to three different groups. Denmark, Finland and the Netherlands do not show significant gender-job satisfaction differences. In contrast, in Portugal men are more satisfied with their jobs ...

Subjective Well-Being and Relative Deprivation: An Empirical Link

This paper explores the relationship between two well-established con-cepts of measuring individual well-being: the concept of happiness, i.e. self-reported level of satisfaction with income and life, and relative deprivation/satisfaction, i.e. the gaps between the individual's income and the incomes of all individuals richer/poorer than him. Operationalizing both concepts using micro panel data from ...

Are People Inequality Averse, and Do They Prefer Redistribution by the State? Evidence from German Longitudinal Data on Life Satisfaction ; A Revised Version

We link life-satisfaction data to inequality of the pre- and post-government income distribution at the regional level, to estimate the degree of inequality aversion. Three different inequality measures are used. In addition, we investigate whether a reduction in inequality by the state increases individual well-being. We find only weak evidence that Germans are inequality averse. Inequality reduction ...
