    Research on education and fertility has been enriched by studies that take the educational field into account next to the educational level. But what causes the association between educational fields and fertility? This paper contributes to the existing literature by examining how characteristics of educational fields are related to the transition to parenthood and the timing of the first birth ...

For the analysis we match individual firm and bank financial statements in Germany for the period of 2004-2010. The data include a large number of medium sized ...

    What can survey question ordering experiments tell us about fertility decision making?

    Speaker: Paul Mathews (ISER, University of Essex)
    Location: Gustav-Schmoller-Raum
    DIW Berlin im Quartier 110
    Room 3.3.002A
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin

    Objective: In surveys, preceding questions can influence respondents' answers to later questions. As an individual's opinions toward their own fertility are highly dependent upon their circumstances, we test whether prior questions might influence the reporting of fertility preferences. Methods: We use three experiments which manipulate the ordering of questions to examine the priming effects of ...

    The role of family risk attitudes in education and intergenerational mobility: An empirical analysis

    Speaker: Mathias Hübener (University College London)

    Time: 12:30 - 13:30

    This paper analyses the role of family risk attitudes in intergenerational mobility in incomes and education. Based on 1984-2009 data of sons and fathers from the German Socio-Economic Panel Survey, there is evidence suggesting that sons with risk taking fathers have a significantly higher educational mobility and persistently higher income mobility than peers with risk averse fathers. They obtain ...

    Abstract: University fees have recently trebled in England and there are fears that many young people may be put off from participating in further and higher education – especially those from low income backgrounds.

    Learning a musical instrument during childhood may increase educational opportunities by improving cognitive skills, teaching non-cognitive skills or by sending positive signals to teachers. Our study tests these hypotheses with data from the German Socio-Economic Panel, which contains information on musical practice during childhood as well as detailed parental background characteristics. In ...

    Are we architects of our own happiness? The importance of family background for well-being

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

    Modern societies and economies are built on the promise that individuals are basically free to choose actions to achieve their greatest happiness. This implies that individuals are the architects of their own happiness (or well-being). Based on data from the German Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP), this paper analyzes to which extent individuals' well-being is determined not by their own actions but by ...

    AbstractThis paper makes use of Hierarchical Bayes Models to model and estimate spatial health effects.

As dependent variable, we use the generic, continuous, and quasi-objective SF12 health measure. Our findings reveal strong ...
