Gründe für unterschiedliche Kita-Nutzung von Kindern unter drei Jahren sind vielfältig

Obwohl der Anteil von Kindern unter drei Jahren in der Kindertagesbetreuung in den letzten Jahren stark gestiegen ist, bestehen immer noch große Unterschiede in der Inanspruchnahme von Kita-Plätzen: Haben Mütter eine geringere Bildung oder beide Eltern einen Migrationshintergrund, dann besuchen ihre Kinder seltener eine Kita. Ein Ziel des im vergangenen Jahr verabschiedeten Gute-KiTa-Gesetzes ist,

Frauen erwarten geringere Lohnsteigerungen als Männer

Basierend auf Auswertungen repräsentativer Umfragedaten zeigt dieser Wochenbericht, dass sich Frauen und Männer in ihren Erwartungen über Lohnentwicklungen deutlich unterscheiden, vor allem bezüglich ihrer langfristigen Erwartungen (über zehn Jahre). Die stärksten geschlechtsspezifischen Unterschiede treten für die Gruppe der jungen Befragten mit hohem Bildungsabschluss auf, die

A question of gender: How promotions affect earnings

Occupational positions can explain an important part of the differences in pay between men and women. However, a considerable Gender Pay Gap exists even within the same occupational position. In this paper, we aim at understanding the reason for the gap within occupational positions and, therefore, investigate whether promotions lead to the same effect on earnings growth for men and women.

Average Wage Gaps and Expected Wage Cuts - An Investigation of Selection Neglect Bias in Income Expectations

Economists spend much of their lives talking about and correcting for sample selection. Recent evidence from behavioral economics documents that participants in lab experiments don't account for selection effects when they interpret conditional distributions. This "selection neglect" can distort expectations in settings where individuals learn from comparisons with other people who differ in

Does later retirement change your health care consumption? Evidence from France

This paper examines the causal impact of later retirement on outpatient care consumption among the French elderly. Outpatient care are defined as all the care provided out of the hospital setting. This question is of interest since spill effects may arise if later retirement increases health care expenditures. To deal with reverse causality issue, I use, as an instrumental variable, the 1993

Salience of Inherited Wealth and the Support for Inheritance Taxation

Abstract: We study how attitudes to inheritance taxation are influenced by information about the role of inherited wealth in society. Using a randomized experiment in a register-linked Swedish survey, we find that informing individuals about the large aggregate importance of inherited wealth and its link to inequality of opportunity significantly increases the support for inheritance taxation. The

Investment Losses and Inequality

Systematic differences along the wealth distribution in investment performance will potentially have large consequences for the level and persistence of wealth inequality. These differences in performance are hard to measure except in a few, select countries with detailed information on household portfolios. In this paper we use a modified version of the Global Capital Asset Pricing Model

Wealth inequality in Germany, 1895-2017

(together with Thilo Albers (HU Berlin) und Moritz Schularick (Uni Bonn)) This paper provides the first long-run wealth inequality series for Germany. We combine wealth tax data, survey data, national accounts' household balance sheets, and lists of large wealth holders to study the accumulation and distribution of wealth in Germany from 1895 to 2017. We find that wealth concentration in
