    Parental leave and mothers' careers

    Speaker: Aline Zucco

    Room 5.2.010
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:30 - 13:30

    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 ...

    Birth Cohort Size Variation and the Estimation of Class Size Effects

    Speaker: Maximilian Bach
    Location: Karl Popper Room
    DIW Berlin
    Room 2.3.020
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    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 ...

    Room 5.2.010
    Mohrenstraße 58

    Time: 12:30 - 13:30

    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 ...

    Care & Careers: Housework Distribution and Occupational Prestige

    Speaker: Claire Samtleben, Kai-Uwe Müller
    Location: Anna J. Schwartz Room
    Room 5.2.010
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:30 - 13:30

    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 ...

    Training Participation with Increasing Working Horizons: Evidence from a German Pension Reform

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

    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 ...

    Fertility as a Driver of Maternal Employment

    Speaker: Julia Schmieder

    Room 5.2.010
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:30 - 13:30

    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 ...

    The effect of exposure to STEM in secondary school on field of study choice

    Speaker: Roxanne Korthals
    Location: Eleanor-Dulles-Raum

    Room 5.2.010
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:30 - 13:30

    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 ...

    Room 5.2.010
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:30 - 13:30

    This paper provides a simple framework to test whether teachers strategically retain students in the first grade of primary school in order to minimize the number of students in their class for grades 2-4. I build a model in which classes are subject to a class size cap and teachers can choose to retain students if their performance falls below an academic threshold. The key prediction, borne out ...

    The Impact of Initial Placement Restrictions on Labor Market Outcomes of Refugees

    Time: 12:30 - 13:30

    This paper analyzes employment effects of a policy reform that was introduced as a measure for targeted integration of foreigners into local labor markets in Germany. The Residence Rule puts additional constraints on initial residence decisions for refugees after having received a permanent residence permit. Given that this reform applies to a subset of refugees only, it creates exogenous ...

The data comprises 13 countries with substantial differences in inequality and levels of redistribution: Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, France, Great-Britain, Germany, The Netherlands, New-Zealand, Switzerland, the US, and ...
