    Dynamics of Health and Labor Market Risks

    While there is little doubt that the probability of poor health increases with age, and that less healthy people face a more difficult situation on the labor market, the precise relationship between facing the risks of health deterioration and labor market instability is not well understood. Using 12 years of data from the German Socio-Economic Panel we study the nature of the relationship between ...

    Making Work Pay for the Elderly Unemployed: Evaluating Alternative Policy Reforms for Germany

    We evaluate three policy reforms targeted at older unemployed people: (i) an hourly wage subsidy, (ii) an in-work credit, and (iii) an employment bonus in the form of subsidized social security contributions on low wages. The work-incentive, labor-supply, and welfare effects of these policy reforms are analyzed on the basis of a behavioral microsimulation model for Germany. We find that the simulated ...

    Apply with Caution: Introducing UK-Style In-Work Support in Germany

    Estimates of the labour supply effects of recent UK reforms in the area of direct taxes and benefits show that policy can have significant influence on the level of employment. We confirm this in a simulation of an in-work support system introduced into the German tax and benefit system. Our simulation results suggest that introducing in-work tax credits in Germany would increase the employment of ...

    Much Ado about Nothing: Conditional Logit vs. Random Coefficient Models for Estimating Labour Supply Elasticities

    This study compares several specifications of discrete choice labour supply estimations on basis of the German Socio Economic Panel. The results suggest that despite the restrictive assumptions of the error terms the conditional logit model provides an adequate model choice for the analysis of labour supply functions. Significance tests, which are based on bootstrapped confidence intervals, show that ...

    Estimation of Multinomial Logit Models with Unobserved Heterogeneity Using Maximum Simulated Likelihood

    In this paper, we suggest a Stata routine for multinomial logit models. - with unobserved heterogeneity using maximum simulated likelihood based on. - Halton sequences. The purpose of this paper is twofold. First, we describe the. - technical implementation of the estimation routine and discuss its properties. Further,. - we compare our estimation routine with the Stata program gllamm, which. - solves ...

    Deutschland: ein Land der Mieter? Die Rolle von Erwartungen über zukünftige Immobilienpreisentwicklungen

    Mehr als die Hälfte aller Haushalte in Deutschland wohnen zur Miete – ein im internationalen Vergleich sehr hoher Wert. Bisherige Studien haben vor allen Dingen den regulatorischen Rahmen des Immobilienmarkts hervorgehoben, der Mietwohnungen in Deutschland systematisch begünstigt. Allerdings gibt es keine Studien, die diese Erklärungen empirisch eindeutig untermauern können: einige Arbeiten betonen ...

    Taxation of Married Couples in Germany and the UK: One-Earner Couples Make the Difference

    A large body of literature points out that joint taxation of married couples with full income splitting (Ehegattensplitting) is an important reason for the relatively low labor force participation of married women in Germany. This paper investigates the relative gains of joint taxation for married couples by comparing effective tax burdens for three groups of tax units between Germany and the UK. Using ...

    Safety Net Still in Transition: Labour Market Incentive Effects of Social Support in Poland and Germany

    Many aspects of the economic transition which started in 1989 in Poland are by now complete. However, the route Polish governments have so far taken concerning the system of support for low-income families still implies very different poverty alleviation schemes compared to those found in many developed countries. We examine the Polish system of social assistance in a comparative context with Germany ...
