Looking for the Missing Rich: Tracing the Top Tail of the Wealth Distribution

We analyse the top tail of the wealth distribution in France, Germany, and Spain using the first and second waves of the Household Finance and Consumption Survey (HFCS). Since top wealth is likely to be under-represented in household surveys, we integrate big fortunes from rich lists, estimate a Pareto distribution, and impute the missing rich. In addition to the Forbes list, we rely on national

Mortality in Midlife for Subgroups in Germany

Case and Deaton, 2015 document that, since 1998, midlife mortality rates are increasing for white non-Hispanics in the US. This trend is driven by deaths from drug overdoses, suicides, and alcohol-related diseases, termed as deaths of despair, and by the subgroup of low-educated individuals. In contrast, average mortality for middle-aged men and women continued to decrease in several other high

Peer Effects in Parental Leave Decisions

We analyze whether mothers’ parental leave decisions depend on their coworkers’ decisions. The identification of peer effects bears various challenges due to correlated characteristics within social groups. We therefore exploit quasi-random variation in the costs of parental leave induced by a policy reform in Germany. The reform encourages mothers to remain at home during the first year following

The Family Working-Time Model: Towards More Gender Equality in Work and Care

Since the millennium, the labour market participation of women and mothers is increasing across European countries. Several work/care policy measures underlie this evolution. At the same time, the labour market behaviour of fathers, as well as their involvement in care work, is relatively unchanging, meaning that employed mothers are facing an increased burden with respect to gainful employment

Immigrant Occupational Composition and the Earnings of Immigrants and Natives in Germany: Sorting or Devaluation?

In this article, the influence of immigrant occupational composition on the earnings of immigrants and natives in Germany is examined. Using data from the German Socio-Economic Panel Study and the German Microcensus, several relevant concepts are tested. The notion of quality sorting states that the differences in wages that are associated with the immigrant share within occupations are due only

Making Work Pay: Increasing Labour Supply of Secondary Earners in Low Income Families with Children

In-work support through the tax-benefit system has proved to be an effective way of increasing thelabor supply of lone mothers and first earners in couples in a number of OECD countries. At the sametime, these instruments usually create negative employment incentives for secondary earners. This inturn reduces the potential of in-work support to address the joint objectives of higher employmentand

Two Steps Forward - One Step Back? Evaluating Contradicting Child Care Policies in Germany

We apply a structural model of mothers’ labor supply and child care choices to evaluate the effects of two child care reforms in Germany that were introduced simultaneously. A legal claim to subsidized child care became effective for children aged 1 year or older. Moreover, a new child care allowance (‘Betreuungsgeld’) came into effect. It is granted to families who do not use publicly subsidized

Der Gender Pay Gap im Beruf: Warum er nicht überall gleich groß ist

Der Gender Pay Gap beträgt in Deutschland 21 % und ist in Teilen darauf zurückzuführen, dass Männer und Frauen in unterschiedlichen Berufen arbeiten. Allerdings sind auch innerhalb der Berufe beachtliche Verdienstunter-schiede zwischen Männern und Frauen zu beobachten, deren Höhe sich aber zwischen den Berufen stark unter-scheidet. Während kein klarer Zusammenhang zwischen dem Frauenanteil im
