    Macroeconomic fundamentals and asset prices – state dependence and implications for the conduct of monetary policy

    Noticing the adoption of unconventional measures of monetary policy in major currency areas on the one hand and continuing globalisation and integration of international financial markets on the other hand, we analyse the linkages between monetary policy and asset prices. Apart from excess asset valuation, we consider second order dynamics (uncertainties, tail risks) as specific threats to...

    Modern state-owned firms' performance: An empirical analysis of productivity, market power and innovation

    In sectors of general interests, the economic activity of the state decreased over decades as a consequence of privatisation and liberalisation. Recently, local governments began to remunicipalise in the energy and water sector, thereby creating a new and modern generation of state-owned firms.  These firms, however, differ in organisation and production environment from the state monopolists...

    Non-probability Internet Surveys

    This joint project aims to compare the scientific advantages and disadvantages of “traditional” survey methods used by the SOEP and the innovative web-based sampling methods used by Civey and to identify potential research synergies resulting from combinations of the two approaches. On the one hand, Civey’s web-based approach is likely to offer access to population groups that...

    Open-source modeling of the future role of renewable hydrogen in Germany and Europe

    In the project "Open Hydrogen Modeling", we expand and link three Berlin-based open-source models: the Global Gas Market Model (GGM), the Global Energy System Model (GENeSYS-MOD), and the electricity sector model DIETER. We investigate the prospects of the hydrogen markets in creation, ranging from the global market to the European and German market. We are particularly interested in the...

    Perceptions of Inequalities and Justice in Europe (PIJE)

    Over recent decades, European societies have witnessed increasing social inequalities. Faced with more flexible labor markets, open trade, and technological as well as ongoing demographic changes, European welfare models have been unable to effectively address this issue. Recent developments such as the yellow vest movement in France and the rise of populist parties across Europe have renewed...

    Personality and social relationship dynamics: Short- and medium-term processes in daily life (DIPS)

    In two large-scale studies, researchers are investigating short- and medium-term dynamics within and between social relationships. These are the first studies of their kind to take not only quantitative but also qualitative behavioral relationship characteristics into account. Using multivariate analysis methods, they examine the influence of personality characteristics (e.g., extraversion,...

    Raising the retirement age and gross returns on pension contributions

    The aim of the project is to calculate the effects of a further (continuous) increase in the standard retirement age on the gross returns on pension insurance contributions of different cohorts. The project is divided into three modules. In the first module, the mechanisms are presented that take effect in the pay-as-you-go German pension system when the retirement age is raised for certain groups...

    Record linkage between Socio-Economic Panel and administrative pension data — a combined dataset for life course research (SOEP-RV)

    This project is being carried out in cooperation with the Research Data Centre of the German Pension Insurance (FDZ-RV). It aims at linking survey data from the Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP) with individual administrative data from the German Pension Insurance. The administrative data contain monthly employment and pension histories on individuals in dependent employment starting at the age of 14.

    Refugee Families in Germany (Geflüchtete Familien in Deutschland, GeFam 2)

    The application for the project “Conception, Implementation, Preparation, Register Linkage, Analysis, and Data Provision/Distribution of a Representative Sample of Refugee Families (GeFam)“ approved by the BMBF envisions that this sample be doubled by another 1,600 “anchor” respondents along with their families. The GeFam boost sample was designed to increase the number of...

    Role model Austria - What lessons can be learned for the design of old-age provision in Germany?

    In the project, the differences between the German and Austrian pension systems are to be systematized and analyzed on the basis of administrative microdata and dynamic simulation models. In contrast to the previous use of stylized biographies or empirical averages, the added value of the project lies in the analysis based on microdata as well as in the differentiated consideration of individual...

    Simulation of educational trajectories, taking latent decision-making processes into account - in the framework of the research group “Multi-sectoral Regional Microsimulation Model” (MikroSim)

    This project will create a methodological framework for embedding a transition model with free (unknown) parameters in a dynamic, small-scale microsimulation. A transition model of this kind will also enable latent and/or only partially observed processes to be represented in a microsimulation. The key element for embedding a transition model with free parameters is a metamodel (or statistical...
