    Smoking and Returns to Education: Empirical Evidence for Germany

    Looking at smoking-behavior it can be shown that there are differences concerning the time-preference-rate. Therefore this has an effect on the optimal schooling decision in the way that we assume a lower average human capital level for smokers. According to a higher time-preference-rate we suppose a higher return to education for smokers who go further on education. With our empirical fondings we ...

We use representative data from the German Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP), combined with five air pollution levels. These data were provided by the Federal Environment Agency and cover theyears 2002-2007. Our work makes two important contributions. First, we ...

    The Effect of Health and Employment Risks on Precautionary Savings

    This paper extends the idea of using ex-ante risk measures in a model of precautionary savings by explicitly simulating future net-income risks. The uncertainty measure takes into account the interdependency of labour market status and health. The model is estimated for prime age males using the German Socio-Economic Panel Study for years 2001-2007. The empirical analysis is conducted using a measure ...

    Selectivity Processes in and Weights for the Berlin Aging Study II (BASE-II)

    Like many medical studies, the Berlin Aging Study II (BASE·II) is based on a non·random "convenience sample" of self·recruited participants. To study processes of selectivity in BASE·II, we used an identical questionnaire to compare BASE·II with a large, representative reference study, the German Socio·Economic Panel (SOEP), thereby allowing differences in characteristics of participants in BASE·II ...

    Poverty and Transitions in Health

    Using a sample of Europeans aged 50+ from twelve countries in the Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe (SHARE) we analyse the role of poor material conditions as a determinant of changes in health over a four-year period. We find that poverty defined with respect to relative incomes has no effect on changes in health. However, broader measures of poor material conditions such as subjective ...

    First Do No Harm. Then Do Not Cheat: DRG Upcoding in German Neonatology

    Since 2003 German hospitals are reimbursed according to diagnosis related groups (DRGs). Patient classification in neonatology is based inter alia on birth weight, with substantial discontinuities in reimbursement at eight different thresholds. These discontinuities create strong incentives to upcode preterm infants into classes of lower birth weight. Using data from the German birth statistics 1996 ...

    Health-Related Life Cycle Risks and Public Insurance

    This paper proposes a dynamic life cycle model of health risks, employment, early retirement, and wealth accumulation in order to analyze the health-related risks of consumption and old age poverty. In particular, the model includes a health process, the interaction between health and employment risks, and an explicit modeling of the German public insurance schemes. I rely on a dynamic programming ...

    Möglichkeiten und Grenzen der partiellen Rangdatenanalyse in der sozialwissenschaftlichen Forschung: Untersuchungen zu sozialen Netzwerken und Hilfeleistungen

    Pflegebedürfnisse werden zum erheblichen Teil durch professionelle Dienste befriedigt. Ein wichtiger Eckpfeiler in der pflegerischen Versorgung stellen darüber hinausfamiliäre Beziehungen wie Partner und Kinder, sowie Freundes- und Nachbarschaftsnetzwerke dar. Diese Ressourcen stehen aber nicht allen Personen gleichermaßen zur Verfügung, sondern sind in der Bevölkerung ungleich verteilt. Wir beschäftigen ...
