    Child Care Costs and Mothers' Labor Supply: An Empirical Analysis for Germany

    This study analyzes the effect of child care costs on the labor supply of mothers with preschool children in Germany using data from the German Socio-Economic Panel (2002). Child care costs are estimated on the basis of a sample selection model. A structural household utility model, which is embedded in a detailed tax-benefit model, is used for labor supply estimation. In contrast to a previous German ...

    Accounting for the Spouse when Measuring Inequality of Opportunity

    Existing literature on inequality of opportunity (IOp) has failed to address the question as to how the circumstances and choices of spouses in a couple should be treated. By omitting information relevant to the spouse in IOp estimations, the implicit assumption was full responsibility for the partner's income, effort and circumstance variables. In this paper, we discuss whether or not the partner's ...

    To Marry or Not to Marry: Essays on Partnership Formation and Economic Labor Market Behavior of Married and Cohabiting Couples ; Dissertation

    Die Wahl der Partnerschaft (Ehe oder eheähnliche Gemeinschaft) spielte bis in die 1970er Jahre eine eher untergeordnete Rolle in der ökonomischen Forschung. Der Grund hierfür ist die simple Tatsache, dass die Ehe die einzige anerkannte Form einer Partnerschaft war. Das Konstrukt der eheähnlichen Gemeinschaft spielte bis dato eine untergeordnete Rolleund wurde höchstens als Vorstufe der Ehe betrachtet. ...

    Marital Sorting, Inequality and the Role of Female Labor Supply: Evidence from East and West Germany

    This paper examines to what extent marital sorting affects cross-sectional earnings inequality in Germany over the past three decades, while explicitly taking into account labor supply choices. Using rich micro data, the observed distribution of couples' earnings is compared to a counterfactual of randomly matched spouses. Hypothetical earnings are predicted based on a structural model of household ...

    Parental Leave Benefits and Breastfeeding in Germany: Effects of the 2007 Reform

    While breastfeeding is associated with health benefits for both mothers and children, it may also make it difficult for mothers to return to the labor market early. Maternity and parental leave regulations have been developed to mitigate this conflict. In 2007, Germany passed a reform introducing a new parental leave benefit (Elterngeld). In this paper, we address the question of whether the new parental ...

    Intergenerational Transmission of Unemployment: Evidence for German Sons

    This paper studies the association between the unemployment experience of fathers and their sons. Based on German survey data that cover the last decades we find significant positive correlations. Using instrumental variables estimation and the Gottschalk (1996) method we investigate to what extent fathers' unemployment is causal for offsprings' employment outcomes. In agreement with most of the small ...

    Teenage Pregnancies and Birth in Germany: Patterns and Developments

    We study the development of teenage fertility in East and West Germany using data from the German Socioeconomic Panel (SOEP) and from the German Mikrozensus. Following the international literature we derive hypotheses on the patterns of teenage fertility and test whether they are relevant in the German case. We find that teenage fertility is associated with teenage age and education, with the income ...

    Trick or Treat? Maternal Involuntary Job Loss and Children's Non-cognitive Skills

    Negative effects of job loss on adults such as considerable fall in income have long been examined. If job loss has negative consequences for adults, it may spread to their children. But potential effects on children's non-cognitive skills and the related mechanisms have been less examined. This paper uses propensity score matching to analyze maternal involuntary job loss and its potential causal effect ...
