    Wohnsitzauflage: An opportunity for integration? The Impact of Residential Obligation Policy on Refugee Women’s Labor Market Participation

    Speaker: Aslıhan Yurdakul (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona), Yuliya Kosyakova (Institute for Employment Research - IAB), Adriana Cardozo Silva
    Location: Karl Popper Room

    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:30-13:30

    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 ...

    Restrictions to Civil Liberties in a Pandemic and Satisfaction with Democracy

    Speaker: Lorenz Meister

    Room 2.3.020
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:30-13:30

    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 ...

    Subjective belief formation and stock market participation in Germany

    Speaker: Sebastian Becker
    Location: Karl Popper Room
    DIW Berlin
    Room 2.3.020
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:30-13:30

    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 ...

    The Long Run Impact of Expulsion of Germans (1944-1950) on Anti-Refugee Voting

    Speaker: Li Yang
    Location: Karl Popper Room
    DIW Berlin
    Room 2.3.020
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:30-13:30

    The political consequences of refugees for receiving countries have received much attention in recent years and have sparked a burgeoning literature. However, evidence on the long-run consequences of refugees is lacking. The expulsion of 8 million Germans (so-called expellees) from Eastern Europe to post-WWII West Germany serves as a natural experiment that allows us to estimate the long-run ...

    Promotion prospects and within-level wage growth: A decomposition of the part-time penalty

    Speaker: Boryana Ilieva
    Location: Ferdinand Friedensburg Room
    DIW Berlin
    Room 2.3.001
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:30-13:30

    The part-time wage penalty is a key contributor to the gender wage gap. In this paper, I study how the part-time penalty decomposes in a lack of promotions to higher paying levels of the career ladder and a lack of wage growth conditional on the career level. I develop a dynamic model of labor supply that distinctly features hierarchical wage structures and promotions. I estimate the ...

    A decomposition of the life-cycle part-time wage gap: Forgone promotion prospects and stagnant wage growth within job levels

    DIW Berlin
    Room 2.3.020
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:30-13:30

    Long periods of part-time work lead to a stagnation of wage growth. In this paper, I study how the wage stagnation decomposes in lack of career development and the lack of wage growth conditional on the career level. I develop a dynamic choice model of labor supply which distinctly incorporates vertical career moves to jobs paying higher wages as a function of the choice of hours of work. I ...

    The Effects of Shortening Potential Benefit Duration: Evidence from Regional Cut-offs and a Policy Reform

    Speaker: Jonas Jessen
    Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
    Time: 14:00-15:00

    We quantify labour market effects of changes in the potential benefit duration (PBD) in Poland. Individual workers' PBD depends on the county unemployment rate relative to the national average---12 months of PBD above a cut-off of 125 per cent and 6 months below. This cut-off shifted from 125 to 150 per cent in a 2009 reform. We utilize (i) the natural experiment of the reform and (ii) the ...

    Women's managerial representation and the gender pay gap

    Speaker: Virginia Sondergeld
    Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
    Time: 12:30 - 13:30

    This paper analyzes the impact of women's managerial representation on the gender pay gap among subordinates on the establishment level using German Linked-Employer-Employee-Data. For identification of a causal effect we employ two estimation strategies: 1) a panel model with establishment fixed effects and 2) an event study estimation around a discrete shift in managerial representation. We find ...

    Increasing employment and family care? A structural analysis of pension and long-term care policy reforms

    Speaker: Björn Fischer
    Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
    Time: 12:30 - 13:30

    We develop a comprehensive life-cycle model of elder parent care and work to evaluate options that address pressing conflicts between pension and long-term care (LTC) policies. Many OECD countries react to challenges of demographic change by increasing LTC by family members (informal care) and raising retirement ages. This intensifies conflicts between paid employment and informal care provision. ...

    The dynamics of informal and formal care supply to parents - a structural model

    Speaker: Björn Fischer
    Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
    Time: 12:30 - 13:30

    In this paper, we estimate a structural dynamic discrete choice model of informal as well as formal care provision, retirement and labor supply. The model allows to assess the dynamic consequences of providing informal care or organizing formal care for parents, e.g., due to reduced wages, pension benefits, or benefits from long-term care insurance. Further, it allows to analyze counterfactual ...

    Social Mobility and Economic Development

    Speaker: Guido Neidhöfer, ZEW
    Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
    Time: 13:15 - 14:30

    We explore the role of social mobility as driver of economic development. First, we draw the geography of intergenerational mobility of education for 52 Latin American regions, as well as its evolution over time. Then, through a novel weighting procedure that considers the aggregate participation of cohorts to the economy in every year, we estimate the effect of changes in mobility on economic ...

    Intergenerational Effects of Grandparental Care on Children and Parents

    Speaker: Elena Ziege
    Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
    Time: 12:30 - 13:30

    Grandparents act as the third biggest care giver besides day care and parental care for children below the age of 6 in most OECD countries. Despite its relevance, the effects of child care provided by grandparents on child and parental outcomes have received little attention in the literature. We investigate the potential impact of grandparental care on children's ...

    Health Effects of Prenatal and Infancy Home Visiting Programs by Nurses: Evidence from a Randomized Control Trial

    Speaker: Gabriella Conti, University College London
    Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
    Time: 13:15 - 14:30

    Home visiting programmes are increasingly being implemented across the globe to help vulnerable families with young children, however longer-term experimental evidence on their health impacts on both parents and children is scarce. In this paper we study the medium-term health impacts of a randomized control trial to evaluate the Nurse Family Partnership (NFP), one of the oldest home visitation ...

    Culture, Children and Couple Gender Inequality

    Speaker: Jonas Jessen
    Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
    Time: 12:30 - 13:30

    This paper examines how culture determines within-couple gender inequality. Exploiting the setting of Germany's division and reunification, I compare child penalties of couples socialised in a more gender-egalitarian culture to those in a gender-traditional culture. The long-run penalty on the female income share is 30.9% in West German couples, compared to 18.3% in East German ...

    Responses to unexpected and permanent changes in pension income

    Speaker: Sebastian Becker
    Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
    Time: 12:30 - 13:30

    For the design of pension reform it is crucial to disentangle the employment effects related to the substitution and the income effect. In this paper we provide causal evidence about the importance of the income effect which in general has been assumed to be small or non-existent. We exploit a pension reform in Germany that raised pension benefits related to children. For ...

    Speaker: Niklas Gohl
    Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
    Time: 12:30 - 13:30

    Since the start of the century, particularly in urban centres, housing markets worldwide have experienced stark price and rent increases. As a consequence urban agglomerations have experienced strong changes in their neighbourhood composition with originally poorer, central areas gentrifying quickly. Governments have reacted by raising the topic of affordable housing on the ...

    Informal care, work and retirement - choices in conflict? A structural model

    Speaker: Björn Fischer
    Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
    Time: 12:30 - 13:30

    This paper estimates a structural dynamic discrete choice model on parental care provision, retirement and labor supply. We want to estimate the dynamic consequences of providing informal care or organizing formal care for care dependent parents. While there might be negative long term consequences on wages and retirement benefits, agents might respond to incentives in the long term care ...
