    Establishing a Probability Sample in a Crisis Context: The Example of Ukrainian Refugees in Germany in 2022

    Following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in early 2022, more than one million refugees have arrived in Germany.

Instrumental variables estimates suggest ...

    Supplementary indicators towards climate targets

    Life Events and Life Satisfaction: Estimating Effects of Multiple Life Events in Combined Models

    How do life events affect life satisfaction? Previous studies focused on a single event or separate analyses of several events. However, life events are often grouped non-randomly over the lifespan, occur in close succession, and are causally linked, raising the question of how to best analyze them jointly. Here, we used representative German data (SOEP; N = 40,121 individuals; n = 41,402 event occurrences) ...
