    (together with C. Katharina Spieß and Sevrin Waights) We examine the impact of day care usage on parenting activities.

Using time-use data and panel data of a household survey, we estimate the effects at the extensive (use vs. non-use) ...

    Location: Anna-J.-Schwartz-Raum

    Mohrenstr. 58

This paper uses the 1999 reform that abolished the ERA at age 60 for women ...

    Time: 12:30 - 13:30

    At the end of World War II, 40% of the pre-arranged Soviet occupation zone in Germany was under the control of the Allied Expeditionary Force. This occupation was very short-lived and the Red Army gained full control of the Soviet zone less than two months after the German surrender. However, this paper shows that the brief Allied occupation systematically increased opposition to the budding ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    This paper analyzes the impact of the German Parental Leave Reform on mothers' careers in the long run.

Using the total population of the Integrated Employment ...

    Time: 12:30 - 13:30

    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 ...
