    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar: Integrating Inequality in Multidimensional Poverty Indices: The Correlation Sensitive Poverty Index
    Integrating Inequality in Multidimensional Poverty Indices: The Correlation Sensitive Poverty Index

    Speaker: Nicole Rippin (Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik)
    Location: Ferdinand-Friedensburg-Raum
    DIW Berlin
    Room 2.3.001
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:30 - 13:30

    The study deals with the inclusion of inter-personal inequality in multidimensional poverty indices. Inter-personal inequality is usually equated with association among poverty dimensions, i.e. whether a substitute, complement, or independent relationship exists among the poverty dimensions in question. The equation produced a situation where the existence of simultaneous deprivations serves as ...

    Effects of changes in student composition on teacher mobility. Evidence from the admission reform

    Speaker: Krzysztof Karbownik (Uppsala University)
    Location: Eleanor-Dulles-Raum
    DIW Berlin im Quartier 110
    Room 5.2.010
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:30-13:30

    This paper examines teacher job mobility using matcher employee-employer panel data from Stockholm municipality upper secondary schools. I utilize the exogenous change in upper secondary school admission which led to the sharp reshuffling of students within the municipality. This quasi experimental set up provides a unique opportunity to investigate the relationship between changes in student ...

    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar: Social Change and intergenerational continuity in family formation
    Social Change and Family Formation: The German Reunification

    Room 2.3.001
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 13:30 - 14:30

    This project uses the German reunification to study how social change impacts two aspects of women's family formation: standardization - the degree to which women's family formation is similar, and pluralization - the development of new family formation patterns. In view of the Second Demographic Transition (SDT), institutional, economic, and ideational explanations for family behavior are ...

    Location: Gustav-Schmoller-Raum
    DIW Berlin im Quartier 110
    Room 3.3.002A
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:30 - 13:30

    This paper is the first to analyze intergenerational economic mobility based on sibling correlations in permanent economic outcomes in Germany and to provide a cross-country comparison of Germany, Denmark, and the US. The main findings are as follows: the importance of family and community background in Germany is higher than in Denmark and comparable to that in the US. This holds true for ...

    Cluster-Seminar Public Finances and Living Conditions

    Risks and Returns to Educational Fields - A financial asset approach to vocational and academic education

    Speaker: Johanna Storck

    Applying a financial assets approach, we investigate the risks and returns to investments into different types of human capital. Even so the returns from investing in human capital have expensively been studied, little is known about the properties of the return to different types of human capital. Using information from the German Micro Census, we estimate the risk and returns to around 70 fields ...

    Cluster-Seminar Public Finances and Living Conditions

    The Dynamics of Earnings in Germany: Evidence from Social Security Records

    Speaker: Holger Lüthen

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

    We examine patterns of earnings volatility for male employees who are subject to statutory social security contributions in West Germany over the period 1986 - 2005. For this purpose, we analyse individual records covering highly reliable earnings biographies provided by the German Social Security Administration. We decompose earnings into permanent and transitory components and estimate ...

    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar: Is health a predictor of job loss and high status attainment? A gender sensitive approach to health selection on the labor market
    Is health a predictor of job loss and high status attainment? A gender sensitive approach to health selection on the labor market

    Speaker: Hannes Neiss
    Location: Gustav-Schmoller-Raum
    DIW Berlin im Quartier 110
    Room 3.3.002A
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:30 - 13:30

    Health effects on the labor market have most often been assessed using wage as the outcome variable. I estimate health effects on involuntary job loss and attainment of a high status position to see if health has an impact beyond wages. Using SOEP data and controlling for a wide range of human capital and non-labor-market constraints to capture indirect health selection I can show that there are ...

    When can we trust population thresholds in regression discontinuity designs

    Speaker: Florian Ade, Ronny Freier
    Location: Eleanor-Dulles-Raum
    DIW Berlin im Quartier 110
    Room 5.2.010
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:30 - 13:30

    A recent literature uses variation just around legislative population thresholds to identify causal effects of institutional changes. We review the use of regression discontinuity designs using such thresholds. Our concern is threefold: (1) simultaneous exogenous (co-)treatment, (2) simultaneous endogenous choices and (3) manipulation and precise control over population measures. Revisiting the ...
