Using COME-HERE longitudinal data from 2021, this investigation links mask wearing, prosocial behaviour, and well-being. Given that mask wearing has positive externality properties, wearing one can be seen as pro-social behaviour.

We want to estimate the dynamic consequences of providing informal care or organizing formal care for care dependent parents. While there might be negative long term consequences on wages and retirement benefits, agents might respond to incentives in the long term care...

We focus on the example of biogas, one of the most frequently deployed technologies besides wind and solar. To this end, we combine longitudinal household data with novel panel data on more than 13, 000 installations ...

As expected, contemporary world events influenced respondents’ worries. For example, worries about peace peaked in 2003, the year of the Iraq War; worries about both immigration ...
