  • Younger Than Ever? Subjective Age Is Becoming Younger and Remains More Stable in Middle-Age and Older Adults Today

    Little is known about historical shifts in subjective age (i.e., how old individuals feel). Moving beyond the very few time-lagged cross-sectional cohort comparisons, we examined historical shifts in within-person trajectories of subjective age from midlife to advanced old age. We used cohort-comparative longitudinal data from middle-age and older adults in the German Ageing Survey (N = 14,928; ~50% ...

  • Der Verzicht auf Grundsicherungsleistungen: Kalkül, Stigma und soziale Einbettung

    Grundsicherungsleistungen nach SGB II und SGB XII werden häufig nicht beantragt. Auf Basis des SOEP-IS wird für Niedrigeinkommenshaushalte gezeigt, dass viele Menschen im Anspruchsfall bewusst auf eine Beantragung verzichten würden, auch wenn nur ein geringer Teil einen Bezug grundsätzlich ausschließt. Identifiziert werden verschiedene Mechanismen, die zur Nichtinanspruchnahme führen: Kosten-Nutzen-Erwägungen, ...

  • My Home is My Burden? Homeownership, Financial Burden and Subjective Well-Being in a Unitary Rental Market

    This study investigates the relationship between homeownership and subjective well-being. Using long panel data from Germany, we find supporting evidence for greater life satisfaction among owners compared to renters only when omitting housing characteristics. This effect reduces by more than half when comparing only owners with a mortgage to renters. Examining a variety of domain satisfactions, we ...

  • Are Some People More Consistent? Examining the Stability and Underlying Processes of Personality Profile Consistency

    Personality traits are relatively consistent across time, as indicated by test–retest correlations. However, ipsative consistency approaches suggest there are individual differences in this consistency. Despite this, it is unknown whether these differences are due to person-level characteristics (i.e., some people are just more consistent) or exogenous forces (i.e., lack of consistency is due to environmental ...

  • Recent Methodological Advances in Panel Data Collection, Analysis, and Application

    Panel studies have become an indispensable part of today's research world especially when addressing causal questions and tracking changes over time. Three conditions are essential for effective panel data analysis: 1) having a sufficiently long time series with a substantial number of observations, 2) ensuring measurement consistency over time, and 3) using a meaningful model for selecting elements ...

  • The evolution of family policies and couples' housework division after childbirth in Germany, 1994–2019

    Objective: We examine how the re-traditionalization effect of childbirth on couples' division of housework has evolved over time as a result of major family policy change. Background: Supportive family policies are associated with a more egalitarian division of labor. However, it remains unclear how a country's transition from a modernized male breadwinner regime that supports maternal care to family ...

  • Using Natural Experiments to Uncover Effects of Anti-Refugee Riots on Attitudes of Refugees

    While previous research has focused on terrorist attacks and natives’ attitudes towards immigration, we examine the effect of anti-refugee attacks on refugees’ attitude towards the host country. We use survey data from the 33rd wave of the German Socio-Economic Panel as the fieldwork period overlapped with the infamous anti-refugee riots in Bautzen and as the survey includes a refugee sample. Making ...

  • Using within-person change in three large panel studies to estimate personality age trajectories

    How does personality change when people get older? Numerous studies have investigated this question, overall supporting the idea of so-called personality maturation. However, heterogeneous findings have left open questions, such as whether maturation continues in old age and how large the effects are. We suggest that the heterogeneity is partly rooted in methodological issues. First, studies may have ...

  • Financial incentives and antibiotic prescribing patterns: Evidence from dispensing physicians in a public healthcare system

    To ensure sufficient access to healthcare in remote areas, some countries allow physicians to directly dispense prescribed drugs through on-site pharmacies. Depending on the medication prescribed, this may pose a significant financial incentive for physicians to over-prescribe. This study, therefore, explored the effect of on-site pharmacies on antibiotic dispensing in a social health insurance system. ...

  • Chronic disease onset and wellbeing development: longitudinal analysis and the role of healthcare access

    Experiencing the onset of a chronic disease is a serious health event impacting living conditions and wellbeing. Investigating wellbeing development and its predictors is crucial to understand how individuals adapt to chronic illnesses. This study (i) analyzed the impact of a chronic disease on wellbeing development, and (ii) explored spatial healthcare access as potential moderating factor.Data were ...
