Spurious Correlations in Quantile-Based Consumption Spillover Tests

Consumption spillovers are difficult to estimate. Many tests in the literature argue that spillovers cause positive correlations between individual consumption levels and aggregate income quantiles. This paper develops simulation-based procedures for evaluating reduced-form tests for consumption spillovers. I find that the correlation found in prior tests may be spurious, arising from the mechanical ...

Income loss among the self-employed: implications for individual wellbeing and pandemic policy measures

The self-employed and the members in their households usually form an economic unit. As a consequence, the income cuts not only affect the self-employed themselves but also the rest of their household. We used the German Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP) to calculate how much income ...

Should Schools Grade Student Behavior? Quasi-Experimental Evidence from Comportment Grade Reforms

Numerous countries require teachers to assign comportment grades rating students’ social and work behavior in the classroom. However, the impact of such policies on student outcomes remains unknown. We exploit the staggered introduction of comportment grading across German federal states to estimate its causal effect on students’ school-to-work transitions as well as cognitive and non-cognitive abilities. ...

Happiness adaptation to high income: Evidence from German panel data

This paper is the first to use national representative panel data to demonstrate that individuals do not adapt to high income in the long run: after five or more years, the life satisfaction of high-income people is still higher than that of the average population. Using entropy balancing (EB) matching and Lasso variable selection to reweight the control group yields similar results.

Time, Income and Subjective Well-Being – 20 years of Interdependent Multidimensional Polarization in Germany

Society drifts apart in many dimensions. Economists focus on income of the poor and rich and the distribution of income but a broader spectrum of dimensions is required to draw the picture of multiple facets of individual life. In our study of multidimensional polarization we extend the income dimension by time, a pre-requisite and fundamental resource of any individual activity. In particular, we ...

The quantification of its prevalence on regional levels represents an important indicator for public health reporting. In addition to that, it marks a crucial basis for further explorative studies regarding environmental determinants of the condition. However, assessing the distribution of major depression ...
