The German Socio-Economic Panel Study is a representative panel study for the German population, collecting data on a broad variety of topics of everyday life, including general wellbeing, household composition, educational aspirations and educational status, income and occupational biographies, leisure time activities, housing, health, political orientation and more. With its long running panel structure, the breadth of topics and the representative nature of the data, the SOEP has become a central resources for quantitative research in the social sciences in Germany.

Government Ownership and Competition: Evidence from the European Airline Industry following the COVID-19-Pandemic http://www.diw.de/sixcms/detail.php?id=diw_01.c.855193.de 11:30 - 12:30
Rooms 3.3.002A+B+C

This paper empirically analyses the impact of government ownership on competition. The COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent governmental equity interventions in the European airline industry provides for a particularly ideal setting to investigate this topic, and this for several reasons. First, airline markets and competition therein are well-defined and well-understood. Second, European countries offered rescue packages differing in size and scope; several countries provided sizable equity interventions to their national airlines - in total, around 13.7 bn €. We present preliminary results on how these equity interventions affected competitive outcomes.

Subjective belief formation and stock market participation in Germany http://www.diw.de/sixcms/detail.php?id=diw_01.c.859075.de

This paper exploits unique variation induced by two information treatments on a sample of German households in 2017 and 2018 to evaluate how subjective belief formation about stock market returns affects stock market participation and portfolio choice. I find that on average the information treatments do not shift individual expectations about returns significantly. Additionally, I show that responses to treatment are highly heterogeneous and that respondents can be classified into three different groups based on how they incorporate the additional information into their beliefs. Lastly, I illustrate that integrating biased beliefs formation in a standard portfolio choice life cycle framework can help to explain a significant part of the anomalies of the households investment behavior like low participation rates and relatively constant risky portfolio shares across age and wealth distribution.

Chronic disease onset and wellbeing. Analyzing level, trend effects, and exploring the role of healthcare access http://www.diw.de/sixcms/detail.php?id=diw_01.c.856044.de
Objectives: Experiencing the onset of a chronic disease is a major life event impacting living conditions and wellbeing. Using longitudinal data, this study investigates immediate and trend impacts of chronic disease onset on life satisfaction and health satisfaction. It further examines, whether healthcare access buffers the immediate wellbeing reduction after disease onset.
Methods: Data were obtained from the German Socio-economic Panel (SOEP), a nationally representative longitudinal household survey. A sample of 4,122 individuals was identified for whom the onset of either cancer, cardiopathy, diabetes or stroke was observed. For this prospective sample, mixed model analyses using an interrupted time series approach were performed to identify immediate level changes in wellbeing and longitudinal trend changes after disease onset. In an exploratory analysis, spatial access to healthcare (availability of and distance to healthcare providers) as a potential buffer against wellbeing reduction was examined.
Results: Chronic disease onset had an immediate negative impact on the levels of life and health satisfaction. While for health satisfaction, the pre-onset negative wellbeing trend was reversed after disease onset, no trend change was observed for life satisfaction. Wellbeing level and trend effects both varied by chronic disease type. Spatial access to healthcare was not associated with post-onset wellbeing, accounting for pre-onset levels.
Conclusions: Health satisfaction levels follow a recovery trend after the onset of a chronic disease. The negative pre-onset trend, however, is not reversed for life satisfaction. Spatial access to healthcare does not seem to buffer the immediate wellbeing drop after chronic disease onset.

Restrictions to Civil Liberties in a Pandemic and Satisfaction with Democracy http://www.diw.de/sixcms/detail.php?id=diw_01.c.859091.de
Unexpected crises, such as armed conflicts, natural disasters and pandemics require immediate government decisions on how to act to protect the population. The COVID-19 pandemic was the worst sudden onset global crisis since the Second World War, and highlighted tension between civil liberties and public health objectives. How did attitudes towards democracy respond to restrictive policy interventions in the wake of the pandemic? We aim at quantifying the effect of mobility restrictions on citizens' trust in political institutions in Germany. We exploit variation in those restrictions across German Laender to estimate a difference-in-differences (DID) model and a DID-event study analysis. Our results show that stay-at-home orders increased individuals' satisfaction with democracy by approximately 18% of a standard deviation. A heterogeneity analysis provides suggestive evidence that the effect is more pronounced for older individuals, individuals with a high body mass index, and individuals with low levels of vitality. Moreover, the effect seems to be larger for individuals who lived in the German Democratic Republic, a former socialist state. Our study also relates to the economic literature on the change of attitudes and preferences in times of crises.

Wohnsitzauflage: An opportunity for integration? The Impact of Residential Obligation Policy on Refugee Women’s Labor Market Participation http://www.diw.de/sixcms/detail.php?id=diw_01.c.859107.de

To promote integration, the German government enacted the Residential Obligation Act (Wohnsitzauflage) in 2016, which obliges refugees to maintain their residence in the states to which they have been assigned for a period of three years from the time they are granted asylum or temporary residence. Studies addressing this policy have found controversial effects on labor market integration. However, the gender effects of this regulation have been under researched so far. Therefore, this paper aims to fill this gap by exploring the relationship between the likelihood of refugees' employment and the Residential Obligation Act enacted by the German government through a gender lens. In addition, we aim to understand the impact of macro-conditions on the labor force integration of refugee women. Based on data from the IAB-BAMF-SOEP Refugee Survey from 2016 to 2020, we use logit models to identify the probability of being employed at paid work. We find that the Residential Obligation Act has no impact for female refugees, while it is negative for males. In this regard, our findings show that the act has not achieved its integration goal in terms of paid employment, and macro-conditions of the regional labor markets, i.e. unemployment rates, have a significant negative impact on refugees’ access to paid work.
