    Wie ticken die Journalistinnen und Journalisten in Deutschland? Eine empirische Analyse von Persönlichkeitsmerkmalen und politischen Einstellungen auf Basis des Sozio-oekonomischen Panels (SOEP)

    Wie repräsentativ ist der Journalismus für die Gesellschaft und wie sehr unterscheiden sich die Eigenschaften und Einstellungen der Journalistinnen und Journalisten von der Gesamtbevölkerung? Welche politischen Meinungen herrschen in der Berufsgruppe vor, welche sozialen Merkmale prägen sie?Diese Fragen untersuchen wir auf Basis der Daten des Sozio-oekonomischen Panels (SOEP). Wir nutzen die...

    The Development of the Rank-Order Stability of the Big Five across the Life Span

    Several studies have suggested that the rank-order stability of personality increases until midlife and declines later in old age. However, this inverted U-shaped pattern has not consistently emerged in previous research; in particular, a recent investigation implementing several methodological advances failed to support it. To resolve the matter, we analyzed data from two representative panel studies ...

    Big Five Personality and Religiosity: Bidirectional Cross-Lagged Effects and Their Moderation by Culture

    Objective: Personality has long been assumed to be a cause of religiosity, not a consequence. Yet, recent research suggests that religiosity may well cause personality change. Consequently, longitudinal research is required that examines the bi-directionality between personality and religiosity. The required research must also attend to cultural religiosity—a critical moderator in previous cross-sectional ...

    How have you found your job? Effects of the job search channels on labour market outcomes in Germany

    The most popular method to acquire a job is to use one's circle of acquaintances or social networks to find a position. However, in the current research, there is still no clear conclusion if this job search method has positive implications for different job outcomes such as wages. This paper studies the effects of this job search approach in the context of Germany compared to the formal...

    Subjective belief formation and stock market participation in Germany

    This paper exploits unique variation induced by two information treatments on a sample of German households in 2017 and 2018 to evaluate how subjective belief formation about stock market returns affects stock market participation and portfolio choice. I find that on average the information treatments do not shift individual expectations about returns significantly. Additionally, I show that...

    The Long Run Impact of Expulsion of Germans (1944-1950) on Anti-Refugee Voting

    The political consequences of refugees for receiving countries have received much attention in recent years and have sparked a burgeoning literature. However, evidence on the long-run consequences of refugees is lacking. The expulsion of 8 million Germans (so-called expellees) from Eastern Europe to post-WWII West Germany serves as a natural experiment that allows us to estimate the long-run...

    An introduction to respondent-driven sampling (RDS) with case studies

    Declining response rates have made traditional, probability-based sampling methods more resource-intensive and thus more expensive. Studies of population subgroups are particularly vulnerable to this trend, as smaller group sizes as well as other factors often make these groups "hard-to-reach" or "hard-to-survey". In response, researchers have increasingly relied on network...

    Chimpanzee and human risk preferences show key similarities

    Risk preference impacts how people make key life decisions related to health, wealth, and wellbeing. Yet the evolutionary roots of human risk taking behavior remain poorly understood. I will present two studies on risk preferences in chimpanzees, one of our closest living relatives.In the first study, we investigated whether chimpanzees (N=13) differentiate between social...

    How Shocks Affect Stock Market Participation

    While there is a broad consensus in the literature that stock ownership is associated with individual characteristics, such as wealth, income, risk preferences, and financial literacy, less is known about the dynamics of stock market participation (SMP). Major fluctuations in SMP are oftentimes related to political events, economic shocks, and technological disruptions. We discuss the literature...
