Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen The Impacts of the Affordable Care Act on Low-Income Household Finances

This paper investigates the impact of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA, "Obamacare") on out-of-pocket medical expenditures and access to health care for households across the income distribution. Using a DDD identification strategy and simulated eligibility instruments, I parameterize three of the central policy provisions of the ACA: Medicaid expansion, insurance exchange subsidies and individual mandate penalties, and assess their separate effects. I find that all three policies decreased the OOP of targeted households at the bottom of the income distribution and increased utilization of medical services and access to health care.

SOEP Brown Bag Seminar She's Leaving Home: A Large Sample Investigation of the Empty Nest Syndrome

This presentation presents recent research about the Empty Nest Syndrome using the SOEP. Using life satisfaction, the investigation considers the subjective well-being of mothers and/or fathers following the  departure  of  the  last  child  from  the  parental  home. Following a brief literature review and discussion of economic considerations, empirical results are presented from both fixed effects analysis and entropy balancing. In both cases, evidence for the existence of an Empty nest Syndrome are found. Moderators and confounders are also uncovered, highlighting what may exacerbate or ameliorate somewhat the lower well-being of new Empty Nesters.

    Linos-2-Workshop

    Im Rahmen des DFG geförderten Projekts Strukturelle Bedingungen von Gerechtigkeitseinstellungen über den Lebensverlauf (kurz LINOS für Legitimation of Inequalities over the Life-span) findet am 13. und 14. September ein Workshop in den Räumlichkeiten des DIW statt.

    Im Zentrum des Workshops stehen die ersten beiden Wellen eines Beschäftigtenpanels, welches im Kontext des LINOS- Projektes erhoben wird. Ergänzt um verknüpfte administrative Daten des Instituts für Arbeitsmarkt- und Berufsforschung (IAB) in Nürnberg, ermöglicht die Befragung die längsschnittliche Betrachtung von Gerechtigkeitseinstellungen über den Lebensverlauf, unter Berücksichtigung detaillierter Informationen über die Einbettung der Befragten in soziale Kontexte (Projektbeschreibung).

    Der Workshop bietet nationalen und internationalen Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftlern ein Forum, um erste Einblicke in die Methoden und Ergebnisse der LINOS Befragung zu erhalten sowie aktuelle Arbeiten aus der empirischen Gerechtigkeitsforschung zu diskutieren. Am ersten Tag des Workshops wird in die Daten des Projekts eingeführt, unterstützt von Beiträgen zu ergebnis- und ordnungsbezogene Gerechtigkeitseinstellungen im Quer- und Längsschnitt. Der zweite Tag zeigt weitere Perspektive der Datennutzung auf, indem sowohl methodischer Forschung mit LINOS-Daten und administrativen Daten sowie  Beiträge aus der experimentellen Gerechtigkeitsforschung diskutiert werden. Darüber hinaus wird die Rolle von persönlichen Netzwerken für Gerechtigkeitseinstellungen diskutiert. Der Workshop schließt mit einigen Bemerkungen zum Zugang zu den LINOS Daten sowie zu den Möglichkeiten zukünftiger Forschungskooperationen.

    Die Workshopsprache ist Englisch.

    SOEPcampus 12th International Research Workshop “Methods for Ph.D.”

    Empirical research is seeking through methodological processes to discover, hopefully, nontrivial facts and insights. Beside choosing a topic and grounding an idea in theory, empirical research consists of gathering and analysing data as well as presenting results in scientific contexts in order to contribute new issues to the body of acquired knowledge – not only to someone‘s own but also to that of others.

    The workshop this year tackles these steps of your research project:

    • Gathering data via (un)structured interviews and analysing standardised survey data and
    • using the computer for qualitative data analysis and as a tool for statistics.

    These steps will strengthen the cooperation in empirical research to boost and streamline one’s project.

    Fees and refugee scholarships

    499 Euro (with accommodation and meals)
    299 Euro (without accommodation, lunch and dinner are included)

    There are offered up to three funded scholarships to support refugee postgraduate students from Germany. Full details including eligibility criteria and how to apply for a scholarship can be found on the workshop website.

    It is possible to get a certificate on 5 credit points (according to the European Credit Transfer System).

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Care & Careers: Housework Distribution and Occupational Prestige

    Despite increasing female labor market participation over the past decades care duties are hardly been shared more equally within couples. We challenge existing approaches (time availability theory, relative resources approach) on the formation of care arrangements with the human capital theory focusing on the consequences of an unequal distribution of housework. We argue that couples make simultaneous decisions on the time spent in market and care work. A more equal care distribution frees women’s time resources and enhances their abilities to participate in the labor market and have more successful employment careers. Based on GSOEP data we investigate the effects of different care work distributions within heterosexual couple households on their employment probability and occupational success. In this version of the paper we estimate fixed effect regressions also that control for individual and household characteristics as well as general time trends. Preliminary results show that the total amount of housework and its distribution between partners significantly affect, both, the labor market participation and the occupational prestige of men and women.

    SOEPcampus Introduction to the new SOEPlong-version. From raw data to longitudinal analyses in 3 hours
    Post-conference workshop 2018 SLLS Conference

    The German Socio-Economic Panel Study (SOEP) is a wide-ranging representative longitudinal study of private households in Germany, located at the German Institute for Economic Research, DIW Berlin. Some of the many topics include household composition, occupational biographies, marital biographies, employment, earnings, health and subjective indicators. The panel was started in 1984 and offers longitudinal information for more than 80.000 persons in about 20.000 households.

    The purpose of the workshop is to introduce and familiarize doctoral students as well as senior researchers with the file structure and potential of the SOEP data. Specifically, we explore the potential of “SOEPlong”, a new mode of data-provision based on datasets in long-format. Particularly, the workshop focuses on the longitudinal components of the data. We demonstrate and discuss the ability of the longitudinal household design to a) validate causal interpretations, b) combine characteristics from different phases of the life course and c) track dynamics between partners (and other household members) over time.

    Given the huge amount of data (and the correspondingly large number of files) covering 30 years of micro data at the household, individual and event levels, the SOEP dataset is growing into an increasingly complex structure which can be difficult to handle for users, even if they are experienced empirical analysts. The workshop shall serve to help users cope with this complexity. Additionally, the potential of longitudinal data in general (and the SOEP in particular) to model life-course dynamics in sociology is still largely underused. Therefore, the course aims at encouraging the sociological research community to make stronger use of the benefits of this type of data in research projects on dynamics of objective, subjective and biographical indicators.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Training Participation with Increasing Working Horizons: Evidence from a German Pension Reform

    Investments into the human capital of (older) individuals—by employees, governments and especially firms—are expected to depend on the remaining working horizon of individuals. Thus, with the anticipation of shifts in retirement ages due to pension reforms, an increase in training participation rates should be expected. As training increases the employability of older individuals, this would be an important complementary development to pension reforms aiming to increase the employment rates of older age-groups. In this paper, a 1999 German pension reform is used as a natural experiment to study the development of training participation with increasing working horizons. Pre- and post-reform cohorts are compared in a Regression Discontinuity Design using the German Microcensus. However, based on the evidence available for this study, an increase in training participation in anticipation of longer working horizons could not be found. Thus, further interventions are needed to ensure that shifts in the retirement age do not lead to increased old-age unemployment rates due to low productiveness.

    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar Neighborhood level immigrant share, home ownership and charitable giving to refugees?

    Enormous amount of literature in political science, sociology and economics argues that ethnic diversity and economic disparities hinder pro social attitudes and behaviors. Inspired by social identity and out-group threat theories this study tests if being surrounded by ethnic out-group will reduce charitable giving to that out-group among native Germans. This question is tackled by combining individual level data from Socio-Economic Panel with social indicators measured at the neighborhood level. Evidence that charitable giving to refugees among natives decreases in increasing immigrant share is reported. Importantly, this negative statistical association is driven by home-owners residing in the low home-ownership areas. Possible mechanisms underlying these results are discussed.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Fertility as a Driver of Maternal Employment

    Based on findings of an extensive empirical literature that mainly stem from high- income countries, economists often hypothesize that having more children, especially young ones, unambiguously decreases the time mothers spend in the labor market. Re- search on middle- and low-income countries is scarce, despite of several interesting aspects that are common to these countries and that potentially matter for the relationship between fertility and maternal labor supply: the low wealth of a large number of house- holds, the provision of informal child care within extended families, and the high prevalence of informal employment. I use Mexican census data from 2010 in order to provide new evidence on the relationship between fertility and female labor market outcomes in a middle-income country. In order to disentangle causal effects of childbearing, parental preferences for mixed-sex siblings are exploited. My findings show that an exogenous rise in family size is associated with a significant increase in labor supply by mothers that are induced to change their family size by the instrument. This response tends to be driven by an increase in formal employment at the intensive margin for a very small fraction of women, while having mainly an impact at the extensive margin for informal labor. I further show that the presence of grandparents and low household wealth potentially contribute to this positive effect. The external validity of my results is shown to be limited, but econometric approaches that allow to extrapolate from this effect indicate that the response in informal employment is non-negative for the whole sample.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen The effect of exposure to STEM in secondary school on field of study choice

    The choice for a field of study has large consequences on later labor market outcomes. However, in absence of liberal arts and sciences bachelors, field of study choice is often made quite early: either in secondary school or at the start of university. A growing literature shows that information about (direct or indirect through exposure) affects students’ field of study choices. We investigate the effect of a nationwide policy in which some secondary school students receive additional exposure to STEM fields due to an extra STEM instruction time. We use schools which shift into the program over time using school fixed effects. We find that students affected by the policy have lower graduation rates. Further, we find that students affected by the policy are more likely to pursue a softer STEM degree (Health care or Agriculture) and less likely an interdisciplinary degree.
