    The Welfare Consequences Of Learning Where One Stands: Evidence from a Large Field Experiment

    The seminar will share two connected papers, one newer, and in more need of feedback, than the other. The premise of both is the received wisdom that income rank matters for welfare, in particular life satisfaction. In most discussions, however, income comparisons are limited to the national population and evidence is correlational. In the first paper, we report on an experiment that randomized...

    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...

    Teleworking and Life Satisfaction during COVID-19: the Importance of Family Structure

    We carry out a difference-in-differences analysis of a real-time survey conducted as part of the German Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP) survey and show that teleworking had a negative average effect on life satisfaction over the first 2 years of the COVID-19 pandemic. This average effect hides considerable heterogeneity, reflecting gender-role asymmetries: lower life satisfaction is found only for unmarried ...

    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 = 40,121individuals; n = 41,402 event occurrences) ...

    Sexual Jokes and Conversations at the Workplace and Their Relation to Employee Well-Being: Results from a Longitudinal Study

    Ambient social sexual behaviour at work refers to sexual jokes and conversations at the workplace. Prior cross-sectional studies indicate that this behaviour is relatively widespread and tends to be associated with negative well-being. We revisit this research by investigating the outcomes of sexual jokes and conversations at work after 1 year in a comparatively large employee sample. The perceived ...

    Socioeconomic Inequalities in Pandemic-induced Psychosocial Stress in Different Life Domains among the Working-Age Population

    Background Psychosocial stress is considered a risk factor for physical and mental ill-health. Evidence on socioeconomic inequalities with regard to the psychosocial consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic in Germany is still limited. We aimed to investigate how pandemic-induced psychosocial stress (PIPS) in different life domains differed between socioeconomic groups.MethodsData came from the German ...

    Subjective Well-being as a Complex System: A Psychometric Network Analysis Perspective

    Subjective well-being (SWB) is a complex multidimensional construct with manifold positive implications. However, research on the structure of SWB faces some challenges, as empirical results regarding the popular tripartite model of SWB are inconclusive, and domain satisfaction is often not sufficiently considered when analyzing the structure of SWB. Furthermore, since the different SWB components...
