  • Changes in Working Hours Are Driving Earnings Inequality

    According to Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP) data, inequality in gross monthly earnings in Germany increased significantly between 1993 and 2003 and has been stagnating at a high level since 2008. As this Weekly Report shows, the increase is not being driven by higher hourly wage inequality, but rather by working hours: In recent years, employees with a high hourly wage work more than previously compared ...

  • Private spanner in public works? The corrosive effects of private insurance on public life

    Contemporary societies are not only “risk societies”, but also insurance societies. While the shift of systemic risks from the community to the individual is a distinctive trait of modernity, research on the consequences of this process has focused almost exclusively on welfare state responses aimed at re-collectivizing societal risks. Individual-level reactions associated with the need for a private ...

  • Hiring behavior, remuneration, and employment perspectives in newly founded establishments

    Einstellungsverhalten, Entlohnung und Beschäftigungsperspektiven in neu gegründeten Betrieben: In der Volkswirtschaftslehre wird das Unternehmertum als treibende Kraft hinter dem Prozess kreativer Zerstörung betrachtet, die Innovationen in den Markt einführt, ineffiziente Betriebe verdrängt, und so den Grundstein für das Wachstum der Wirtschaft legt. Ein wesentlicher Bestandteil unternehmerischen Handelns ...

  • Development Throughout the Adult Life Span: Stability and Change in Personality Traits and Social Participation

    Kinder wachsen und verändern sich ganz offensichtlich im Laufe der Zeit, aber nicht nur sie. Menschen verändern sich über ihre gesamte Lebensspanne. Empirisch belegt ist, dass sich auch die Persönlichkeit von Erwachsenen (d.h.: Offenheit für Erfahrungen, Gewissenhaftigkeit, Extraversion, Verträglichkeit, Neurotizismus) und ihr soziales Leben (z.B.: Größe des sozialen Netzwerks) bis ins hohe Alter verändern. ...

  • The Dynamics of Attitudes toward Immigrants: Cohort Analyses for Western EU Member States

    Public opinion climates on immigrants are subject to certain dynamics. This study examines two mechanisms for such dynamics in Western EU member states for the 2002–2018 period. First, the impact of cohort replacement and, second, the impact of periodic threat perceptions, namely, changing macroeconomic conditions and shifts in immigration rates. To date, empirical research on anti-immigrant sentiments ...

  • Does education have an impact on patience and risk willingness?

    We analyse the causal effect of education on patience (also known as time preference) and risk willingness using the German compulsory schooling reform, which took effect in West Germany after World War II. This reform increased compulsory schooling from 8 years to 9 years. We use two-stage least squares to obtain causal effects. In line with the literature, the results show a positive effect of education ...

  • Patterns and Drivers of Over-time Change in the Intergenerational Transmission of Inequality in Germany and the UK

    This doctoral thesis contributes to research on over-time trends in the intergenerational transmission of inequality in two major European societies. Paper 1 entitled ‘Intergenerational Class Mobility of Labour Market Entrants in Germany and the UK since the 1950s’ shows that absolute mobility between parents’ social class and their children’s first social class has continuously changed. Still, increases ...

  • Human Wellbeing and Machine Learning

    There is a vast literature on the determinants of subjective wellbeing. Yet, standard regression models explain little variation in wellbeing. We here use data from Germany, the UK, and the US to assess the potential of Machine Learning (ML) to help us better understand wellbeing. Compared to traditional models, ML approaches provide moderate improvements in predictive performance. Drastically expanding ...
