    The Economic Consequences of Being Widowed by War: A Life-Cycle Perspective (with J. Stuhler)

    Despite millions of war widows worldwide, little is known about the economic consequences of being widowed by war. We use life history data from West Germany to show that war widowhood increased women’s employment immediately after World War II but led to lower employment rates later in life. War widows, therefore, carried a double burden of employment and childcare while their children were young...

    Short-time Work and Unemployment: Long-term effects on labor market outcomes

    This study sheds light on the impact of different types of job retention programs such as short-time work (STW). We analyze the causal effect of an episode of STW on labor market outcomes up to five years later and compare this to the effects of sudden unemployment episodes. Using data from German Socio-Economic Panel (1992–2022), we employ an event-study approach to analyze the effect of...

    Nowcasting Income Inequality in Germany

    Current developments in the labor income distribution shape the business cycle and the transmission of fiscal and monetary policy measures. During economic crises, timely and well targeted economic policy becomes essential but the volatility of the (labor) income distribution is particularly high. Detailed distributional data on household incomes becomes available after one year at the earliest....

    The Dynamics of Poor-quality Employment in the UK: Up the Creek without a Paddle

    Using panel data from Understanding Society, this paper presents a methodology for conceptualising and measuring poor-quality employment in the UK as a distinct concept from job quality. This allows us to identify the most vulnerable employed workers in the UK. Key to this approach is the recognition that poor employment conditions exacerbate each other leading to more intense levels of...

    Reversing the Reversal? A Systematic Reassessment and Meta-Analysis of Wellbeing Research

    Fierce debate over the feasibility of cardinally measuring utility – or ‘wellbeing’ – with surveys has recently resurfaced. Several prominent papers claimed that when interpreting survey data as strictly ordinal, most of the literature’s results are easily reversed. We systematically assess this claim. To do so, we replicate the universe of wellbeing research published in top economics journals...

    DECIPHE – Demographic Change and the Intergenerational Persistence in Homeownership in Europe

    DECIPHE is the first project to comprehensively study whether and how profound demographic changes in Europe impact the intergenerational persistence of homeownership, considering variations across countries, regions, and birth cohorts. It adopts a life course framework on housing tenure, in which individuals’ homeownership is shaped by their household members’ preferences and resources and...

    Video-interviewing as part of a targeted multi-mode design in household panel surveys (CALVI)

    To ensure continued survey participation and data quality, the survey landscape must adapt to the changing social reality, especially with regard to mobility and digitalization. This requires survey researchers to move from one-size-fits-all solutions to a data collection strategy that takes into account people's communication habits, abilities and preferences. For several decades, computer...

    Surveying Panel Participants’ Network Members: Integration of Egocentric Data Collection and Respondent-Driven Sampling

    Individuals are embedded in social contexts: although many large-scale, cross-thematic social science surveys already attempt to do justice to this fact, so far research has only been partially successful. The aim of this study is to supplement and improve the existing data collection strategies - survey designs for multiple actors (MA) and questionnaire modules for egocentric networks (ECN) -...

    How resilient is public support for carbon pricing? Longitudinal evidence from Germany

    The success of climate policies depends crucially on the dynamics of public support. Using unique longitudinal data from three surveys conducted between 2019 and 2022, we study the variations of public support for carbon pricing in Germany. The period includes two relevant events: the introduction and ramping up of carbon pricing in Germany and the exogenous increase in energy prices following the...
