SOEP Brown Bag Seminar Health-Check Up Utilization in UK: Panel Evidence from the BHPS 1992 - 2008

This analysis has investigated the determinants of screening uptake for the six different screening examinations (breast and cervical cancer screening examination, blood pressure check, cholesterol level test, eyesight test and dental screening). Same type of screening examination and also possible spillover effects from one type of screening examination to another other type of screening examinations have been investigated with univariate and bivariate dynamic panel probit models. The dependent variables were the participation in the screening examination in the recent year. A Wooldridge-type estimator with initial conditions have been used as econometric method. The samples consisted of individuals from the British Household Panel Survey (BHPS) for the time period from 1992 to 2008. The analysis has showed the high relevance of past screening behavior and the importance of state dependency for the same and the other type of screening examinations even after controlling for covariates and unobserved heterogeneity. The uptake for breast and cervical cancer screening examinations have been higher when the same type of screening examination have been done one or three years earlier or taking part in previous screening examinations for the other four screening examinations. The result is also in accordance with the NHS breast and cervical cancer screening programmes and with  the recommendations for the other four screening examinations in UK. Positive spillover effects has existed between the screening examinations with regard to blood pressure check and cholesterol level test and also breast and cervical cancer examinations. Other socioeconomic and health related variables have had non-uniform results in the six different screening examinations.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Early childhood care services and refugee children: Differences in attendance and consequences for integration

    We focus on early childhood education and care (ECEC) as one important channel of social integration for refugee families that recently arrived in Germany (between 2013 and 2016). First, we examine the attendance of ECEC of refugee children and investigate how patterns vary depending on individual and family characteristics, and institutional determinants of the location of residence. Then, we evaluate the impact of ECEC attendance of refugee children on the social integration of their parents. Our results show a substantial effect of children’s ECEC attendance on the social integration of their mothers. To estimate the causal effect, we adopt an instrumental variable approach exploiting the county-level variation in ECEC attendance rates. Furthermore, we control for a rich set of characteristics for refugee’s human capital, pre-migration history, and current situation in Germany, as well as for economic and institutional characteristics of the location of residence.

    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar Long-term effects of pregnancy and childbirth on sleep quality and duration of first-time and experienced mothers and fathers

    Study Objectives: This study examines the change in mothers’ and fathers’ sleep satisfaction and sleep duration across pre-pregnancy, pregnancy, and postpartum up to six years after birth and examines potential protective and risk factors for sleep during that time.
    Methods: Participants of a large representative panel study from Germany reported sleep satisfaction and sleep duration in yearly interviews. During the observation period (2008–2015), 2,367 parents reported birth of the first child, 2,666 parents reported birth of the second and 1,184 parents reported birth of the third child. Fixed-effects regression models were used to analyze changes in sleep associated with childbirth.
    Results: Sleep satisfaction and duration sharply declined with childbirth and reached a nadir during the first three months postpartum, with women more strongly affected (women: d = 0.79, 62 min; men: d = 0.16, 13 min for sleep satisfaction and duration compared with pre pregnancy). In both women and men, sleep satisfaction and duration did not fully recover for up to six years after birth of their first child. Breastfeeding was associated with a slight decrease in maternal sleep satisfaction (d = 0.32) and duration (14 min). Parental age, household income, and dual vs. single parenting were unrelated, or only very weakly related to improved sleep.
    Conclusions: While sleep satisfaction and duration decline particularly in the first months postpartum, both mothers’ and fathers’ sleep do not fully recover to pre-pregnancy levels up to six years after birth of the first child.

    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar Inequality amid income stagnation: Italy over the last quarter of a century

    The paper analyses the evolution of inequality in Italy from 1989 to 2014, focusing on three business-cycle phases: the 1992 currency crisis, the moderate growth from 1993 to 2007, and the double-dip recession from 2008 to 2013. Data from the national accounts and the Bank of Italy’s Survey on Household Income and Wealth are used. Results show that income inequality, as measured by the Gini coefficient, rose sharply during the recession of the early 1990s but much less during the recent double-dip recession, though the share of people at risk of poverty rose similarly during the two crises. The stability of (synthetic) distributive inequality measures is explained by the fact that the reduction in income during the double-dip recession hit the whole population. Despite this apparent stability, two changes stand out: the widening gap between the young and the elderly and the fact that the deterioration in living conditions was borne wholly by households whose primary earner was foreign born.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen How did EU Eastern enlargement affect the Austrian labor market?

    In recent years, there has been growing public and political opposition against the principle of free movement of labor within the European Union. Already before the first EU Eastern enlargement in 2004, potential adverse labor market effects for natives in the old EU Member States were widely discussed. Despite these discussions, there is little ex-post research on the impact of EU Eastern enlargement on old Member States' labor markets. In our paper, we want to study how the EU Eastern enlargement affected the Austrian labor market. First, we provide a descriptive analysis of the development of labor supply from the new EU Member States in the Austrian labor market with a focus on the period around their EU entry and free labor market access. Second, we want to exploit the observed patterns in immigration from the EU8 countries that joined in 2004 to identify the effect on the Austrian labor market. More precisely, we want to use variation in the EU8 worker density on the community level over time and over the distance to the closest EU8 border. We find that the share of EU8 employees among all employees in Austria increased by a factor of four from 2003 to 2015. With free access, we see a shift in the composition of migrant workers toward lower-qualified and younger groups. We can further show that the inflow of EU8 employment over time is larger in communities closer to the border.

    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar Mentoring of Refugees - A randomized controlled trial with refugees and locals in Germany

    In the randomized controlled trial "Mentoring of Refugees", refugees participating in the 2017 wave of the IAB-BAMF-SOEP Survey of Refugees were asked about their interest in participating in a mentoring program. Those who declared their interest were randomly selected into treatment and control groups. The treatment group received a spot in a mentoring program. The mentoring program was organized by the social startup “Start with a Friend,” which is active in 14 German cities in which panel respondents were present.The startup connects recently arrived refugees with local counterparts who already live in Germany (most of these so-called “locals” are German citizens) to form friendships. The locals were recruited by Start with a Friend and answered three waves of a survey we administered at different stages of the mentoring relationship (before the first meeting, after six weeks, and after four months). With these data sources, we dispose of a unique data set to study mentoring processes as well as the impacts of these on refugees' integration.
    In our presentation, we will present the implementation of the randomized control trial, first results regarding the interest in participating in a mentoring initiative as well as challenges identified and lessons learned

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Parental leave and mothers' careers

    This paper analyzes the impact of the German Parental Leave Reform on mothers' careers in the long run. To identify the causal effect, we use a difference-in-difference approach that compares labor market outcomes of mothers who gave birth just before and right after the reform and net out seasonal effects by including the year before. Using the total population of the Integrated Employment Biographies, we observe that high-income mothers return later to the labor market. In contrast, we do not observe changes in the average duration of the employment interruptions for low income mothers. Seven to nine years after birth, we do not find effects on wages nor on the probability to hold a leadership positions for neither of the two groups. The result suggests that the longer career breaks for high-income mothers do not have negative effects on their subsequent careers.

    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar Intergenerational Health Mobility in Germany

    Studies of intergenerational mobility in heath are scarce. This is true despite the importance of health for welfare. I show first estimates of integenerational health mobility in Germany using several measures of self-reported health status (SRHS) during adulthood from the SOEP. I proof that there ist higher mobility in health than in income. Moreover, while my estimates for the intergenerational association in health is considerable lower than in the US, my estimates for relative mobility are comparable of that in the US. In addition, I contrast my estimates in intergenerational transmission in SRHS with those in physical and mental health, inferred with the Short-Form 12 questionnaire. While my estimates show that the intergenerational transmission in physical and SRHS are similar, we see notable larger intergenerational persistence in mental health. Further, a rich set of covariates allows me to provide suggestive evidence for potential mechanisms.

    Berlin Lunchtime Meeting Funktioniert der Soziale Fahrstuhl noch? Ansätze zur Förderung sozialer Mobilität

    Seit den 1980er Jahren hat die Einkommensungleichheit im OECD-Raum stetig zugenommen. Zugleich ist die soziale Mobilität ins Stocken geraten. Wenn es Menschen am unteren Ende der Einkommensverteilung nicht mehr „nach oben“ schaffen können, kann dies schwerwiegende soziale, wirtschaftliche und politische Konsequenzen haben. Was sind erfolgversprechende Ansätze, um politisch gegenzusteuern? Die Ergebnisse und Empfehlungen des OECD-Berichts „A Broken Social Elevator?“ werden von Sebastian Königs, einer der Autoren, vorgestellt.

    Sebastian Königs ist Economist and Policy Analyst in der Jobs and Income Division der OECD.

    Daniel Schnitzlein ist Juniorprofessor am Institut für Arbeitsmarktökonomik der Leibniz Universität Hannover und wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter des Sozio-oekonomischen Panel (SOEP) am DIW Berlin.

    Moderation: Ursula Weidenfeld | Wirtschaftsjournalistin

    Der Vortrag beginnt um 12:45 Uhr,  einen Mittagsimbiss bieten wir ab 12:00 Uhr an.

    SOEPcampus CNEF Workshop 2018 at DIW Berlin

    For the first time, the DIW Berlin will host an international workshop on longitudinal data management and analysis. In contrast to our regular German SOEP-workshops, this course will be specifically devoted to comparative longitudinal and cross-country designs with the SOEP and its international sister household-panels. After an in-depth introduction to the SOEP and on general issues in longitudinal data handling, the second part of the workshop will be devoted to the US-American Panel Study of Income Dynamics (PSID). The SOEP and the PSID have many topics and structural features in common, while the respective countries differ in many institutional and compositional features. Therefore, these two datasets are particularly fruitful for empirical cross-country analyses. This potential is additionally stipulated by the provision of several key variables in a harmonized form in the so-called cross-national equivalent files (CNEF). The third part of the course therefore will be devoted to the CNEF-project. It will give an overview on the range of harmonized variables, contributing countries and on issues of data-access. We will also discuss examples of research questions that lead to cross-country designs and limitations of the CNEF data. Additionally, the course will deal with the key analytical cross-country designs.

    Registration & Requirements

    This workshop aims at doctoral students, post-docs and senior researchers, who currently carry out or are planning studies with the SOEP or other household panel data. We specifically want to encourage scholars with a strong interest in the impact of country-specific characteristics on subjective or objective individual conditions to participate in the workshop. Participants shall be familiar with stata and basic quantitative methods. Admission to the workshop will be granted on a first-come basis. The participation fee will be 60 Euros. Registration will be open from June 4th, 12 a.m. (CET).

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Birth Cohort Size Variation and the Estimation of Class Size Effects

    We present evidence that the practice of holding back poorly performing students affects estimates of the impact of class size on student outcomes based on within-school variation of cohort size over time. This type of variation is commonly used to identify class size effects. We build a theoretical model in which cohort size is subject to random shocks and students whose performance falls below a threshold are retained. Our model predicts that initial birth cohort size is mechanically related to the grade-level share of previously retained students once these cohorts reach higher grades. This compositional effect gives rise to an upward bias in class size effects exploiting variation in birth cohort size. Using administrative  data on school enrollment for all primary schools in one federal state of Germany, we find support for this compositional effect. Correcting for the resulting bias in a unique dataset on standardized test scores for the full student population of third graders, we find that not only are smaller classes beneficial for language and math test scores, but also for reducing grade repetition.

    InGRID2 – Summer school

    The summer school “Advanced research on integration of migrants and refugees” and “EU-SILC training workshop: Comparative research on migration” of InGRID2 aims at training doctoral students or early-career researchers. It is also opened to academics, policy practitioners and other interested users, providing participants with opportunities to discuss their projects and to network with leading international experts and other colleagues in the field.

    The summer school will take place in the center of Berlin, at the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW Berlin) and will be hosted by the Socio-Economic Panel Study (SOEP) at the DIW Berlin. The SOEP will provide and organize logistics for the week.

    Objectives and program

    The issue of how immigrants and refugees integrate in their host countries, especially in terms of their labor force participation, is a key issue in many European countries and at EU level. On the one hand immigration tops the list of challenges of greatest concerns to European Union citizens, but at the same time there are numerous economic and political reasons to allow and to facilitate immigration in aging European countries. The provision of humanitarian assistance to forced migrants (refugees) is a key issue in Europe, but the uneven distribution of asylum seekers across the EU countries is a challenge.

    The second part of the summer school focuses on comparative research on migration as a kind of EU-SILC training workshop including a workshop on EU-SILC clone. With the help of SOEP data, we have created a clone of EU-SILC longitudinal data for Germany that is especially valuable for migration researchers. In SOEP, different migration subsamples allow much more detailed analysis for migrants of the first or second generation living in Germany than the original EU-SILC-Sample provided by Eurostat. Furthermore, the workshop will cover advanced research on migration with the use of EU-SILC data.

    The summer school will be organized in different sessions covering various topics of relevance for immigration research. Theoretical and empirical issues related to the processes by which immigrants gain social membership and develop the ability to participate in the destination country will be discussed. Senior researchers will present their work in this field, whereas participants will be encouraged to present their own research and receive feedback

    The curriculum will include quantitative assessment to provide both a multidisciplinary perspective and a comprehensive understanding of the concept of integration. It will furthermore put a special emphasis on methodological issues related to the measurement of concepts of integration within EU countries.
