Internet users and non-users: comparing SOEP-data and a probability-based online panel

Bella Struminskaya (GESIS)

Online surveys are gaining in importance as a tool of data collection and as a platform for methodological experiments. However, certain challenges in regard to the quality of data need to be considered. Volunteer as well as probability-based online panels pose problems of non-coverage bias. Internet users differ from non-users in demographic characteristics: they are younger, better educated, non-immigrants, and have higher income compared to non-users.

In addition to the differences in demographics there are some "webographic" or attitudinal dissimilarities between the two groups: Internet-users tend to be more "socially content" - they are more trusting, have lots of people to draw on for support, and tend to think that others are generally fair (Lenhart et al. 2003). Thus, attitudes and values of Internet users may differ from those of non-users and data collected online would lack representativeness.
The goal of this explorative study is to evaluate the data quality of an online panel comparing SOEP-data and data from the offline-recruited probability-based online panel (GESIS). The analysis includes three steps.

First, using SOEP2008 data the differences between Internet users and non-users are studied.
The results replicate the finding of Lehnart et al. showing that German Internet users tend to be more socially content: after controlling for demographic differences Internet users significantly differ in their opinion that generally people are trustworthy and fair (though that doesn't hold true for readiness to help others).

Second, the quality of the online panel is assessed by a comparison of the panelists' answers to the SOEP-data (the recruitment for the online panel started in December 2010). In the third step it would then be possible to estimate the non-coverage bias of the online panel by contrasting data collected via the Internet to the SOEP-data of the general population (Internet users and non-users).

Symposium Gesellschaft mit beschränkter Information? Möglichkeiten und Grenzen des Zensus 2011

Warum braucht Deutschland einen Zensus? Warum gibt es keine klassische Volkszählung mehr? Wird das neue Zensusverfahren genauso verlässliche Informationen liefern? Wer wird eigentlich noch befragt, welche Registerdaten werden verwendet, ist der Datenschutz gewährleistet?

Das Symposium wird die politische Relevanz der Zensusergebnisse thematisieren, von der nationalen bis zur kommunalen Ebene. Die neuartige Zensusmethode wird zum einen überblickartig erläutert, zum anderen wird die wichtige Frage geklärt, warum eine Stichprobenbefragung bei Haushalten ausreicht, um die Qualität der Ergebnisse zur amtlichen Einwohnerzahl zu sichern und um eine ganze Reihe anderer wichtiger Ergebnisse - Erwerbstätigkeit, Bildung, Migrationshintergrund, Religion - zu liefern.

Two-stage indirect sampling of Kindergarten children in the National Educational Panel Study

Solange Koch (National Educational Panel Study )

In general sampling is based on a complete list. Complete lists of information concerning all units of the target population enable using sampling strategies and getting – depending on the quality of list and strategy – unbiased estimators for parameters of the target population. Without a sampling frame direct sampling is not possible. In this situation Lavallée (2007) suggests to use an indirect sampling approach. If there exists a population with an available sampling frame and this population is connected to the target population in a uniquely defined manner, indirect sampling allows provision of a random sample of the target population and the provision of weights permitting an unbiased estimation of population parameters. There are different kinds of indirect sampling approaches, depending on the kind of link between two populations UA (the population with an available sampling frame) and UB (the target population) and whether a multistage sampling strategy is incorporated. The connection between both populations is called link and can be described by an indicator variable: If there is a connection between a unit j of UA and a unit k of UB , then let lj,ik =1 and lj,ik =0 otherwise, with i describing the structure of clusters in population UB , if there exists one .With this indicator variable and the knowledge of the selection probabilities of all units in UA weights can be calculated.

In the National Educational Panel Study (NEPS) six main cohorts are sampled by a multicohort sequence design to get a longitudinal analysis of education in Germany. In contrast to institutions of other cohorts there is no sampling frame available for Kindergartens. However, in Germany all children have to attend at elementary school. Therefore every child that had been in Kindergarten can be found in an elementary school and for elementary schools a sampling frame exists. Hence, in the NEPS we sample elementary schools sA from the population UA and ask them to list all Kindergartens k from which children from their first grade came from. Proportional to the number of trespassing children Kindergartens are sampled and Kindergarten children tested. With all children tested in Kindergarten the sampling procedure is a two-stage indirect sampling.

On the Stability of Self-Reported Measures of Willingness to Take Risks

Ingo Isphording (Ruhr University Bochum Research School)

Newly available self-reported measures of willingness to take risks are increasingly used as empirical representations of individual risk preferences. Psychological literature states that risk preferences are formed during childhood and are stable thereafter.  Referencing this literature, stability of preferences is often used as an identication assumption in econometric work.  This study supports this assumption empirically. Using data from the German SOEP, a Hausman-Taylor approach is used to test the influence of childhood characteristics and exogenous lifetime events
on the level of self-reported willingness to take risks. Childhood characteristics turn out to be important determinants of willingness to take risks. Reported willingness to take risks decreases strongly with age, shocks like inheritance or emerging work disability have only a small, but signicant impact. This induces a potential source of endogeneity when willingness to take risks is used as explanatory variable in labor market research.

Women's Career and Children - Human Capital and Earnings of Women in Korea and Germany. A Comparative Study

Mee-Kyung Jung (PhD student in Economics at the University of Frankfurt am Main)

Die Studie stellt zufolge Mincer und Polachek (1974, 1978) eine Verdienstdiskontinuität der beschäftigten Mütter als Hypothese auf. Mincer und Polachek teilten in ihrem Modell eine Arbeitsmarkterfahrung der Frauen in die 3 Phasen - die Beschäftigungsphase vor der Heirat, Kindererziehungsphase und Beschäftigungsphase nach der Kindererziehung - auf. Wir erwarten dabei eine Verdienstminderung der berufstätigen Frauen aufgrund des Kindergebärens und der Kindererziehung. Das Ziel dieser Arbeit ist das Identifizieren des Verdienstbruches der berufstätigen Mütter und der Vergleich dieser Effekte zwischen Korea und Deutschland. Die Komparation der Effekte des Humankapitals der Frauen in Korea und Deutschland sowie das Herausfinden der Verdiensteffekte der Kinder für die Frauen in Korea gehören zu den Beiträgen dieser Studie im Bereich der Forschungen des Humankapitals und Arbeitsmarktes in Korea.

Power within couples: What factors and transitions affect power?

Yvonne Lott (DIW Berlin and BIGSSS, Bremen)

Social inequality within the family is a crucial dimension of inequality in the wider society. Power imbalances between partners are linked with intra-family inequality. Surprisingly, power has mostly been neglected in German research so far. First goal of this study, therefore, is to get an idea about what factors are related to power. Rational choice theories as well as gender theory provide explanations for who has power and who doesn't. Furthermore, recent studies on power within intimate relationships mainly treat power as a static concept rather than a dynamic process. Since social relationships change during individuals’ lives, power also changes over partners’ life-courses. Given that transitions such as marriage, children and changes of employment status highly influence and shape the lives of individuals, these transitions might also have an impact on couples’ power. The second goal of this study is the analysis of the relationship between marriage, children and changes of employment status and power within couples. Power is measured on two dimensions: (1) control over financial resources and (2) financial decision-making. The analysis is based on the German Socio-Economic Panel Study (SOEP) in 2004, 2005 and 2008.  Results show that individual income is strongest related to power, but that gender differences also exist with regard to the division of labor and household income. Furthermore, marriage and children increase cooperation in couples. Interestingly, changes to a lower employment status decrease especially female partners' power..

Das Beziehungs- und Familienpanel (pairfam): Design, Feldverlauf und Methodik

Nina Schumann (Mannheimer Zentrum für Europäische Sozialforschung, MZES)

Mit dem Beziehungs- und Familienpanel (pairfam) existiert seit der ersten Erhebungswelle aus dem Jahr 2008/2009 eine weitere große, repräsentative und interdisziplinäre Längsschnittstudie in Deutschland. Das auf 14 Jahre angelegte Projekt folgt einem Kohorten-Sequenz-Design; in der ersten Welle wurden Face-to-Face-Interviews mit insgesamt rund 12.000 Ankerpersonen der Geburtsjahrgänge 1971-73, 1981-83 und 1991-93 geführt. Im jährlichen Turnus finden Wiederholungsbefragungen statt. Zudem werden auch Partner, Eltern bzw. Stiefeltern und Kinder der Ankerpersonen befragt (Multi-Actor-Design). Inhaltlich stehen dabei Themen der Partnerschafts- und Familienentwicklung, der Familienplanung, der intergenerationalen Beziehungen und des Erziehungsverhaltens im Fokus.
Dieser Vortrag soll einen Überblick über Design, Feldverlauf und Methodik von pairfam liefern und somit auch die Möglichkeit zum Erfahrungsaustausch - von Panel- zu Panelkolleginnen und -kollegen - geben.

The Causal Effect of Maternal Education on Child's Health and Schooling Outcomes: Evidence from Germany

Jan Marcus and Daniel Kemptner, both DIW Berlin Graduate Center

This is the first study investigating the causal effect of maternal education on child's health behavior and schooling outcomes in Germany. Our paper adds to the existing literature on intergenerational transfers in various ways. We apply a new instrumental variables approach which has not yet been used in the intergenerational context. Therefore, we draw on a rich German panel data set (SOEP) containing information about three generations. This allows instrumenting maternal education by the number of her siblings while conditioning on a comprehensive set of variables describing the grandparents' social status. Given the grandparents' social status, the number of siblings generates exogenous variation in the years of education by affecting household's resources which are available for human capital investments per child. Unlike studies investigating returns to education by exploiting policy changes, our methodology works also for cohorts unaffected by policy changes and for the limited sample sizes of common household panels. We estimate the causal effect on a wide range of child outcomes both at birth and at age 18/19. We present evidence for strong and significant effects on schooling outcomes for both sexes. And, we find substantial effects on health behavior for daughters at age 18/19, but not for sons. Our findings are robust over a variety of different specifications. We also discuss assortative mating and household income as possible channels of causality. Though, we do not find evidence that the effect of maternal education works through these channels.

Nachbildung von Bildungsverläufen im SOEP: Der Datensatz BIOEDU - aktueller Stand

Henning Lohmann (SOEP, DIW Berlin)
Sven Witzke (SOEP, DIW Berlin)

Das Sozio-oekonomische Panel (SOEP) enthält - beginnend mit frühkindlicher Betreuung bis hin zu tertiärer Ausbildung und Weiterbildung - eine große Anzahl von Variablen zur Bildungsbeteiligung und zu Bildungsabschlüssen. Allerdings liegt der Großteil der Informationen nicht in einem Format vor, das ohne größeren Datenaufbereitungsaufwand längsschnittliche Analysen möglich macht. Der in einer beta-Version vorliegende Datensatz BIOEDU enthält zentrale Informationen zu Bildungsverläufen in längsschnittlich aufbereiteter Form: Erstes beobachtetes Jahr frühkindliche Betreuung, Einschulung, Übergang in Sekundarstufe, Verlassen der Schule, Übergang in und aus beruflicher Ausbildung, Übergang in und aus Studium, höchste Bildungsabschlüsse. In dem Vortrag werden kurz die Generierung und die Analysepotenziale des Datensatzes vorgestellt und weitere Schritte diskutiert.

Auszug aus dem Elternhaus - Determinanten des Auszugszeitpunkts und der Wohnentfernung mit Daten des sozio-oekonomischen Panels (SOEP)

Ferdinand Geissler (Universität Bamberg)

Beim Auszugsprozess junger Erwachsener aus dem Elternhaus sind zwei Dimensionen von Bedeutung: Wann ziehen die Kinder aus und wie weit ziehen sie weg? Die bisherige Forschung zum Auszugsverhalten hat sich bislang auf Koresidenz und den Auszugszeitpunkt konzentriert. Über die Wohndistanz zwischen Kindern und Eltern, die beim Auszug der Kinder aus dem Elternhaus entsteht, ist hingegen nur sehr wenig bekannt. In meiner Arbeit untersuche ich sowohl den Auszugszeitpunkt als auch die entstehende Wohnentfernung vor dem Hintergrund vielfältiger Einflüsse individueller und familialer Charakteristika sowie makrostruktureller Rahmenbedingungen. In meinen empirischen Analysen betrachte ich Auszüge von Kindern mit Daten aus neun Wellen des SOEP der Jahre 2000 bis 2008. Für diesen Zeitraum liegen basierend auf Geokoordinaten exakte Informationen zur entstehenden Wohnentfernung vor. Für die Analyse des Auszugszeitpunkts nutze ich Methoden der Ereignisanalyse (N = 2.090 Auszüge), für die Analyse der entstehenden Wohndistanz lineare Regressionsmodelle (N = 1.514 Auszüge mit bekannter Distanz).

The Effect of Birthright Citizenship on Parental Integration Outcomes

Irma Clots-Figueras (Universidad Carlos III de Madrid)

Abstract
The integration of immigrants is constantly a subject of public debate, and measures to foster assimilation of newcomers are central in the political agenda of many countries. This paper focuses on the legal institution of citizenship and analyzes the consequences of the introduction of birthright citizenship in Germany. Exploiting the exogenous variation provided by the 1999 reform of the German nationality law, we study the effect of child legal status on the cultural integration of immigrant parents. We find evidence that foreign born parents are more likely to interact with the local community and use German language when their children are entitled to German citizenship at birth.

Passage or trap? Leaving deprived neighbourhoods in Germany 

Abstract

Exposure to potentially negative neighbourhood effects in deprived areas depends heavily on the ability to relocate from deprived neighbourhoods to better-off areas. Which households can leave deprived neighbourhoods? Do households relocate to other deprived neighbourhoods or to better-off areas? These questions have received attention foremost in the US and UK, but not to the same degree in Germany. To close this research gap, the analysis makes use of the SOEP and the MICROM data set for neighbourhoods for the years 2000-2008. First, a measure to identify deprived neighbourhoods is constructed. Second, binary logistic regression models for the occurrence of relocations in deprived and non-deprived neighbourhoods are estimated. These models are enhanced allowing for differentiated neighbourhood outcomes in a multinomial logistic regression setting. The analysis shows that ethnic minorities are not to the same degree trapped in deprived neighbourhoods as in the US or UK. Income plays an important role in shaping outcomes of relocations, while age and health are important for the question whether households in deprived neighbourhoods relocate at all.

The bigger the children, the bigger the worries – Are preschoolers and young adolescents affected differently by changes in family structure with regard to non-cognitive skills?

Frauke Peter (DIW Berlin)
C. Katharina Spieß (DIW Berlin und FU Berlin)

Abstract
Family related factors that form a child's environment seem to be of particular importance, probably more important for the explanation of child outcomes than the environment of other care taking institutions, such as day care centers or schools. In light of this literature, this paper focuses on the impact of changes in family structure during children's early years and during adolescence on the development of socio-emotional behavior and non-cognitive skills. Our analysis concentrates on the early years as well as on young adolescence for two reasons: First, the early years are arguably most important for later outcomes. Second, by analyzing early childhood outcomes we focus only on short-term effects, but especially non-cognitive skills are skills that can be formed later on in life and thus, young adolescents might be influenced strongly. Our empirical analysis is based on data from the German Socio-Economic Panel Study (SOEP). We use non-cognitive skills as our primary measure of child outcomes and compare them with more cognitive related outcomes. Family structure changes are defined by maternal partnership variations, as only biological mothers can be identified definitively in our data sets. A maternal partnership change can either be a different partner, a new partner, or no partner. Our analysis suggests that differences in family stability account for some of the gradient in social-behavioral difficulties for 5-6-year-olds. For young adolescents preliminary results suggest that multiple partner changes are negatively correlated with non-cognitive skills, e.g., they are less likely to be active or self- determined in life.

Income inequality, relative income and health

Cristina Blanco (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona)

Abstract

Given the lack of consensus in the literature regarding the effect of income inequality on health, this paper studies the relationship between both variables, focusing on the relative income hypotheses. Using data of the German Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP), we analyse the effect of relative deprivation on individual self-assessed health, when considering "upwards" and "downwards" income comparisons within the reference group. We also control for the existence of feedbacks effects between income and health in a dynamic qualitative response model.
