    Parental Leave Policy and Long-run Earnings of Mothers

    Paid parental leave schemes have been shown to increase women’s employment rates but to decrease their wages in case of extended leave duration. In view of these potential trade-offs, many countries are discussing the optimal design of parental leave policies. We analyze the impact of a major parental leave reform on mothers’ long-term earnings. The 2007 German parental leave reform replaced a means-tested ...

    The Long Reach of Class Origin on Financial Investments and Net Worth

    In this study, we argue that parents' class position may influence the type and timing of their offspring's investments in financial assets. These investments may facilitate net worth accumulation beyond direct transfers, contributing to the intergenerational reproduction of social positions. We test these expectations using retrospective life history and prospective panel data for 14 countries from ...

    The Transition to Grandparenthood: No Consistent Evidence for Change in the Big Five Personality Traits and Life Satisfaction

    Intergenerational relations have received close attention in the context of population aging and increased childcare provision by grandparents. However, few studies have investigated the psychological consequences of becoming a grandparent. In a preregistered test of grandparenthood as a developmental task in middle and older adulthood, we used representative panel data from the Netherlands (N = 563) ...

    The Gender Division of Unpaid Care Work throughout the COVID-19 Pandemic in Germany

    The COVID-19 pandemic and related closures of day care centres and schools significantly increased the amount of care work done by parents. There has been much speculation over whether the pandemic increased or decreased gender equality in parental care work. Based on representative data for Germany from spring 2020 and winter 2021 we present an empirical analysis that shows that although gender inequality ...

    Promotion prospects and within-level wage growth: A decomposition of the part-time penalty

    The part-time wage penalty is a key contributor to the gender wage gap. In this paper, I study how the part-time penalty decomposes in a lack of promotions to higher paying levels of the career ladder and a lack of wage growth conditional on the career level. I develop a dynamic model of labor supply that distinctly features hierarchical wage structures and promotions. I estimate the...

    A decomposition of the life-cycle part-time wage gap: Forgone promotion prospects and stagnant wage growth within job levels

    Long periods of part-time work lead to a stagnation of wage growth. In this paper, I study how the wage stagnation decomposes in lack of career development and the lack of wage growth conditional on the career level. I develop a dynamic choice model of labor supply which distinctly incorporates vertical career moves to jobs paying higher wages as a function of the choice of hours of work. I...

    Distributional effects of financial support models for family caregivers

    Informal care provided by family members is the central pillar of home care in Germany. In view of the increasing need for care and the shortage of skilled workers in formal care, the informal pillar may even gain in importance in the future. It is of central importance that informal caregivers find conditions that make it easier for them to engage in informal care. It is well known that informal...

    Intergenerational Returns to Migration: Evidence from Italian Immigrants Worldwide

    Using a unique administrative dataset on Italians living abroad, we estimate the effect of parental migration on the education, employment and income opportunities of descendants in the host country. We compare Italian second-generation immigrants with Italians residing in Italy having similar observable characteristics, such as age, sex, Italian region of origin and...

    The Gender Gap in Lifetime Earnings: The Role of Parenthood

    To obtain a more complete understanding of the persisting gender earnings gap in Germany, this paper investigates both the cross-sectional and biographical dimension of gender inequalities. Using an Oaxaca Blinder decomposition, we show that the gender gap in annual earnings is largely driven by women’s lower work experience and intensive margin of labor supply. Based on a dynamic microsimulation model, ...
