Zufriedener denn je - Lebensverhältnisse in Deutschland 30 Jahre nach dem Mauerfall

Die Wiedervereinigung Deutschlands jährt sich am 3. Oktober 2020 zum 30. Mal. Drei Jahrzehnte haben gleichwohl noch nicht genügt um die Lebenszu-friedenheit zwischen Ost- und Westdeutschen vollkommen anzugleichen. Nach einem kontinuierlichen Schrumpfen des „Happiness Gap“ der selbstberichteten Lebenszufriedenheit in den späten 1990ern und frühen 2000er Jahren war der Unterschied im Jahr 2018 zwar geringer ...

We make use of 1995-2017 microdata from the German Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP) to show that both individual polarization and relative deprivation have statistically-significant effects on reported concerns about crime, while relative satisfaction plays no role. At the aggregate level, the main ...

Who is Thinking of Leaving Germany? The Role of Postmaterialism, Risk Attitudes, and Life-Satisfaction on Emigration Intentions of German Nationals

The subject of emigration from affluent countries, such as Germany, raises the question of who are more likely to leave their highly-industrialized countries known for high living standards, stable political scene and prosperous economy. Using the theory of postmaterialism (Inglehart, 1997) this paper explores emigration intentions of German nationals taking into account country’s specific socio-economic ...

Being Unengaged at Work but Still Dedicating Time and Energy: A Longitudinal Study

Overcommitted individuals cannot withdraw from work obligations. We examine whether work goal engagement attenuates the negative effects of overcommitment on work and health outcomes. For overcommitted professionals it should matter whether they dedicate time and energy to work goals they feel bound to or to goals they do not feel attached to (unengaged overcommitment). In a longitudinal study of 752 ...
