  • The Transmission of Educational Opportunities across three Generations - Prospects and Limits of the SOEP Data

    In the last centuries, Germany has witnessed a remarkable educational expansion with a long-lasting dynamic. If the educational expansion in West Germany has gained such a momentum, it has to be proven empirically that the respective generation of parents - who themselves had profited from the educational expansion - pass on their (higher) educational aspirations to their children. In this paper, this ...

  • Reversal of gender differences in educational attainment: an historical analysis of the West German case

  • Health: Social Inequality in Early Childhood Health - Participation in the Preventive Health Care Program for Children

    This paper asks how far socioeconomic differences in parental child health investments can be explained by personal and social resources within the family. Using SOEP data from the 2003 to 2008 newborn questionnaire, we estimate multiple logistic regressions to determine the effects of migration status, education, time resources, coping competencies, and social resources (in terms of shared parenthood ...

  • Ethnic Inequality in Preterm Birth

    Preterm delivery is associated with lower health chances after birth. Women with a migration background often have a higher preterm risk (<37 gestational weeks) compared to the nonmigrant majority population. In Germany, little is known about the scope and causes for more adverse birth outcomes among immigrant women. Focusing primarily on two large migrant groups, that is first-generation Turkish ...

  • Discrimination in Hiring Based on Potential and Realized Fertility: Evidence from a Large-Scale Field Experiment

    Due to conventional gender norms, women are more likely to be in charge of childcare than men. From an employer’s perspective, in their fertile age they are also at “risk” of pregnancy. Both factors potentially affect hiring practices of firms. We conduct a large-scale correspondence test in Germany, Switzerland, and Austria, sending out approx. 9,000 job applications, varying job candidate’s personal ...

  • Was Weber Wrong? A Human Capital Theory of Protestant Economic History

    Max Weber attributed the higher economic prosperity of Protestant regions to a Protestant work ethic. We provide an alternative theory: Protestant economies prospered because instruction in reading the Bible generated the human capital crucial to economic prosperity. We test the theory using county-level data from late 19th-century Prussia, exploiting the initial concentric dispersion of the Reformation ...
