    Early retirement of employees in demanding jobs: evidence from a German pension reform

    Speaker: Johannes Geyer
    Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
    Time: 12:30 - 13:30

    Workers in demanding jobs may be particularly negatively affected by an increasing statutory retirement age. We exploit a pension reform that raised the early retirement age of women from 60 to 63 years in Germany. Based on a large administrative social security data set we exploit the quasi-natural experiment using a regression-discontinuity approach. We find the same relative employment ...

    Gender Bias in Justice of Earnings and Gender of Supervisor. Evidence from a Factorial Survey Experiment

    Speaker: Anja Kirsch (FU Berlin), Carsten Sauer (Zeppelin University Friedrichshafen), Jule Adriaans, Katharina Wrohlich
    Time: 12:30 - 13:30

    There are persisting wage inequalities between men and women. These gender differences in wages are also reflected in gender differences in the justice evaluation of earnings. Women – even though structurally disadvantaged – evaluate their own wages more positively (“contented female worker paradox”) and at the same time both men and women show a ...

    Internet Use and Job Matching in Germany

    Speaker: Giorgia Menta and Sonia Schifano (University of Luxembourg, guest researcher at SOEP)
    Time: 12:30 - 13:30

    We here assess the impact of DSL internet access on a set of labour market outcomes of working-age individuals in Germany between 2008 and 2012. Assuming internet access improves the quality of employer-employee matching by reducing search costs, we focus on indicators of job quality: the working hours mismatch, job satisfaction, and the probability of changing job. We draw ...

    The Effect of Air Quality Alerts on School Absenteeism - Evidence from New York City

    Speaker: Luis Sarmiento
    Time: 12:00 - 13:00

    This study examines the relationship between air quality alerts and school absenteeism in New York City. Examining the effects of the alerts in school attendance is relevant because it helps us understand parents' avoidance behavior in situations of exacerbated exposure to air contaminants. Causality arises by exploiting the deterministic nature of the alerts with regression discontinuity ...

    Time:
    Note the time change:
    13:30 - 14:45

    Abstract:   Our research question is to what extent does the familiarity with the testing environment impact the relative performance of boys and girls in standardized testing. We use an RCT-design on the full population of students in Grade 6 and 10 across several subjects in the Region of Madrid (Spain). This standardized test was either "Externally" administered, meaning that teachers ...

    The link between family networks and mental health for exogamous couples in old age

    Speaker: Chia Liu, Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research & University of St. Andrews
    Time: 12:30 - 13:30

    In later life, social ties become increasingly important for one’s mental health. In this study, we test whether exogamous unions, in which one of the partner is migrant and one native, affect older individual’s social networks, and whether the association between exogamy and mental health operates through social networks. We hypothesize that immigrants gain social ...

    The Long-Term Effects of World War II Destruction on Private Wealth in Germany

    Speaker: Christoph Halbmeier
    Time: 12:30 - 13:30

    The physical destructions, expropriations, resettlements, and interruptions of international trade during Second World War caused a sharp reduction of wealth levels and inequality in many countries (Piketty, 2014). In Germany, an estimated 20 percent of the West German housing stock was destroyed. This paper assesses whether the effects of this destruction are measurable in the ...

    The Effect of Retirement on Health - Evidence from Administrative Data

    Speaker: Mara Barschkett
    Time: 12:00 - 13:00

    We combine unique data that include all practitioner health diagnoses based on the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-10) collected from all publicly insured individuals in Germany with a sizable cohort specific pension reform to study the causal effect of an increase in the retirement age on health. For the analysis, we use a cohort specific regression discontinuity design. The ...

    Does Unemployment Make Better Fathers? The Effect of Job Loss on Fathers’ Time Investment in the Household

    Speaker: Juliane Hennecke (NZ Work Research Institute and Auckland University of Technology), Astrid Pape (FU Berlin)
    Time: 12:30 - 13:30

    Commonly described as the “gender care gap“, there is a persistent gender difference in the division of child care and housework responsibilities within households in most developed countries. Existing literature on paternal child care involvement and parental leave take-up largely suffers from sample size and selection issues. This paper provides evidence on the effect of an ...

    Local News, UGC and Professionals: Evidence from Citizen Journalism

    Speaker: Jörg Claussen, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München
    Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
    Time:
    13:15 - 14:30

    Abstract:  User generated content is increasingly substituting content created by professionals. Local news that is generated by citizen journalists could be a promising way of supporting the struggling newspaper industry by reducing costs for professional journalists. We study a network of 122 local Austrian newspapers operating a hybrid model of citizen and professional journalism. We first ...

    Temporary employment and the midlife nadir in human well-being

    Speaker: Alan Piper, FU Berlin and Europa-Universität Flensburg
    Time: 12:30 - 13:30

    Temporary employees rank lower than permanent employees on various measures of mental and physical health, including well-being. Furthermore, much research has indicated an approximate U-shape pattern between age and well-being with a nadir in midlife. Temporary employment may well have different associations with well-being across the lifespan, likely harming people in midlife more than ...

    Barriers to humanitarian migration, traumatic events and integration outcomes: Evidence from Germany

    Speaker: Teresa Freitas-Monteiro (PhD Candidate, IAB), Lars Ludolph (PhD Candidate, LSE)
    Time: 12:30 - 13:30

    In this study we estimate the hidden cost of restrictive migration policies and highlight the need for health-related support among refugees. The traumatic events asylum seekers experience at origin due to exposure to violent conflict and during the journey to the EU may have lasting negative effects on their economic and social integration in the destination country. We hypothesize that ...

    What do we want? And when do we want it? Alternative objectives and their implications for experimental design.

    Speaker: Maximilian Kasy, University of Oxford
    Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
    Time:
    13:15 - 14:30

    Summary:  This talk will provide a survey of several papers on the theory and practice of experimental design. I will compare different objectives (estimator precision, outcomes of participants, informing policy choice to maximize average outcomes, and informing policy choice to maximize utilitarian welfare), and their implications for experimental design. I will consider heuristic ...

    Decomposition of Gender Pension Gaps Across Europe from a life-course perspective – preliminary drafts from sequence data analysis and Blinder-Oaxaca-Decompositions

    Room 5.2.010
    Mohrenstraße 58

    Time: 12:30 - 13:30

    My master thesis compares the impact of different life-courses on the Gender Pension Gaps across East and West Germany, Czechia and Italy. Using retrospective data on the dimensions of work and family from SHARELIFE, I contrast two different approaches. The first applies sequence data analysis to identify work-family life course patterns across all four countries as a first step, and includes ...
