SOEP Brown Bag Seminar Which preferences cause horizontral sex segregation in fields of studies? Some experimental evidence

Occupational gender segregation is one of the most persistent gender inequalities in the labor market and one contributing factor is the lack of women in STEM fields. Possible explanations for this pattern are the characteristics of the fields of study (creative-associative versus analytical-systematic thinking style required, the number of mathematics courses, competitive atmosphere), and the characteristics of the job for which the field of study prepares for (risky transition to the labour market, social versus technical skills, income, prestige and family-friendly working conditions). However, previous research was not able to tell which factor really contributes to the gender segregation as the characteristics of the fields are highly correlated and cannot be disentangled with survey data. For this reason, I conducted a choice experiment with high school students two years before they start university. The results show that women and men have different preferences except for prestige and risk aversion and that they differ the most in their self-image (thinking style: 20 percentage points difference; technical versus people-oriented skills: 25 percentage points difference).

    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar Residential Segregation and Charitable Giving to Refugees

    A large corpus of literature investigates how the presence of ethnic and economic out-group affects pro-social behavior. However, some long-standing theoretical controversies have not yet been resolved and empirical results are mixed. On the one hand, researchers associated with social identity and group-threat theories argue that out-group presence will drive down the pro-social behavior towards the out-group members. On the other hand, social contact theorists claim that residing in the ethnically and economically mixed neighborhoods will have a positive infuence as social contact reduces out-group prejudice. One way to reconcile these two theoretical streams is to take the geographical clustering of social groups into account. Residential segregation will reduce the likelihood of inter-group cooperation by limiting inter-group contact opportunities as well as making group boundaries more salient. My study tests this hypothesis by linking neighborhood-level social indicators and detailed individual-level data on charitable giving to refugees in Germany. I find that likelihood of giving to refugees declines in the city-level immigrant share. However, this effect is driven by the german natives living in the predominantly german neighborhoods.

    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar Multidimensional Inequality Analysis using SOEP data and the Constitution of Germany

    Well-being inequality is a subject that has being extensively covered and which is widely discussed also in the political and civil environment. However, the majority of the studies done in this field are still limited to the analysis of monetary variables, like income, wealth or expenditure, completely forsaking non-monetary elements such as education, health or employment on the basis that monetary variables have the same trends and are sufficiently good proxies of well-being.
    However, many scholars (such as Sen, 1980, 1992, 1997) think the opposite. This presentation aims to go beyond the monetary-only one dimensional approach and to construct a multidimensional measure of inequality comprised of both monetary and non-monetary values, as it has already been done with well-being (Sen, Stiglitz, Fitoussi, 2010) and poverty (Rippin, 2010) and to see the trends and values of well-being multidimensional inequality in Germany before and after the crisis of 2007. The role of non-monetary inequality and gender and regional differences are also important topics that will be analysed.
    At the same time, a strong theoretical background that justifies the choice of dimensions and weights is proposed in the form of the Constitutional Approach by (Burchi, De Muro & Kollar, 2014) which uses the countries' constitutions and annexed documents to identify the most important variables for those countries.
    The analysis will make use of the SOEP, an invaluable source of information on many aspects of well-being and arguably among the best dataset available for this kind of analysis. A comparison with some previous analysis regarding Italy (using IT SILC) will allow to understand the possible outcome of the research made with the SOEP.

    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar Do immigrants prefer regions in which people are generally more open towards immigrants and immigration?

    In my dissertation, I analyse the effect of migrant-open climate on immigrant location choice: Do immigrants prefer regions in which people are generally more open towards immigrants and immigration? I argue that to maximise well-being, immigrants reduce their risk of facing discrimination by choosing regions of residence in which migrant-open climate is higher.To capture revealed preferences, migrant-open climate is a voter-weighted measure of party positions on immigrants and immigration.
    The work in progress I present at the brown bag seminar focuses on the third empirical chapter, which adds an individual analysis of immigrant location choice in Germany, and tests if immigrants' life satisfaction does depend on migrant-open climate. The SOEP sample consists of both direct and indirect immigrants. Explaining variation in immigrants' moving behaviour, I estimate linear probability models with county and year dummies. I find that the migrant-open climate in a county has a positive pull effect on an immigrant's choice of her or his new location of residence. Secondly, I find a significant negative effect of migrant-open climate on immigrants' life satisfaction, which contradicts my theoretical expectation. That result is driven by immigrants who have never moved, by immigrants with an indirect migration background, and by immigrants who have German citizenship.
    Since people's experienced discrimination partly depends on their ethnicity, I compare effects on both moving probability and life satisfaction for different ethnic groups, and test for threshold effects of migrant-open climate on life satisfaction.
    I am interested in general feedback, but would also appreciate your input on modeling ethnicity with SOEP data. To this end, the presentation also includes a SOEP-specific technical section.

    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar Erwartungen an Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft - eine innovative Langfristbefragung zu sozialen Gerechtigkeitseinstellungen

    Es wird mehr und mehr klar, dass die subjektive Wahrnehmung und Bewertung objektiver Ungleichheiten als 'gerecht' oder 'ungerecht' eine Schlüsselrolle für ihre Reproduktion und Auswirkungen spielen.

    Das LINOS-Projekt unter Leitung von Stefan Liebig untersucht, wie und warum die strukturellen Bedingungen, in denen Individuen eingebunden sind, diese Gerechtigkeitseinstellungen beeinflussen. Zu diesem Zweck führt die Projektgruppe die Langfristbefragung Erwartungen an Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft durch, welche hier vorgestellt wird.
    Die Studie beruht auf einer aus der Meldung zur Sozialversicherung gezogenen Stichprobe von Erwerbstätigen, welche in bisher zwei Wellen (2012/13 und 2017) erhoben wurde. Ergänzt um verknüpfte administrative Daten des Instituts für Arbeitsmarkt- und Berufsforschung (IAB) in Nürnberg, ermöglicht die Befragung die längsschnittliche Betrachtung von Gerechtigkeitseinstellungen über den Lebensverlauf, unter Berücksichtigung detaillierter Informationen über die Einbettung in soziale Kontexte (u.a. Betrieb, Partnerschaft, soziales Netzwerk).
    Im Mittelpunkt der Studie stehen Gerechtigkeitseinstellungen im Bezug auf eigene und fremde Einkommen (ergebnisbezogene Gerechtigkeitseinstellungen), die Regeln, nach denen Güter und Lasten verteilt werden sollten (ordnungsbezogene Gerechtigkeitseinstellungen) und die Verfahren, die zur Generierung von Ungleichheiten beitragen (verfahrensbezogene Gerechtigkeitseinstellungen).

    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar The Integration of Immigrant Cohorts in the German Labor Market

    This paper aims to shed some lights on the integration patterns of different labor migrant cohorts in Germany. The migrant cohorts here contain three different groups. First, the immigrants who migrated before 1984, the second group are individuals who arrived in Germany between 1995-2007 and the last group are the people who migrated between 2008-2013. The migrant cohorts and data analysis are constructed based on SOEP longitudinal data version 33.1. The considering migrant cohorts are from Turkey, Ex-Yugoslavia, Balkan countries, Greece, Italy and Spain where Ex-Yoguslavia only exists for first migration cohort. The paper introduces a panel regression model based on the studies by Bratsberg et. al. (2014) and Borjas (1985, 1995, 2015) to estimate the integration rate of each migrant cohort and it occurs when out-gap with native converges to zero. Finally, the descriptive statistics of integration outcomes and income distribution of each migrant cohort will be illustrated.

    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar Satisfaction with life and tourism: empirical investigation on a case of Germany

    Impact of tourism on lives of residents is of great importance for tourism industry for a range of reasons. Tourism development is undertaken in order to promote economic prosperity of the destination to improve wellbeing of residents. On the other hand, support from residents is of great importance for achieving positive overall experience for tourists.
    In a series of works we investigated the relationship between tourism and satisfaction with life of German residents. We base our analysis on the data coming from SOEP annual survey in the period from 2000 to 2012. This data was enriched by data on tourism intensity taken from official statistics.
    Our analysis is based on a theoretical model of satisfaction with life that stems from bottom up spillover theory of satisfaction with life. According to this model individual satisfaction with life is a collection of satisfaction with eight spheres of life of the individual: working life, material life, health, emotional life, relationships with friends and family, quality of environment, personal safety and community life. In this model tourism is assumed to influence overall satisfaction with life through community life.
    We demonstrate that there is significant relationship between tourism and satisfaction with life of residents. We show that effect of tourism is different depending on spatial aggregation of data. Moreover, we underline differences of tourism impact in large cities compared to other destinations. Theoretical and policy implications of these findings are discussed.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Retirement and informal care provision - Effects of the 1999 pension reform in Germany

    Using a reform induced increase in the ERA for German women this paper uncovers causal effects of retirement on informal care provision. Studies so far focus on the causality of labor supply on informal care activity in the middle part of an individual’s working career, mostly neglecting effects of retirement. This paper uses the 1999 reform that abolished the ERA at age 60 for women born from 1952 onward to instrument retirement and estimate a causal effect on informal care provision. Doing so, the underlying mechanism, namely that retirement solves a time conflict at the individual level is accessed. I apply two German survey data sets (SOEP and SHARE) and find that affected women decrease their care activity due to the reform on the extensive margin. In an heterogeneity analysis I show that women retiring from employment and highly educated women drive the results. Retirement is estimated to increase informal care activity on the extensive margin.

    Ist Deutschland so ungleich wie vor 100 Jahren?
    Soziale Ungleichheit in historischer Perspektive

    Ist Deutschland heute so ungleich wie vor hundert Jahren? Dieses Ergebnis von Ökonomin Charlotte Bartels zur langfristigen Entwicklung der Einkommensungleichheit in Deutschland wurde in der Öffentlichkeit kontrovers diskutiert. Ihre Studie ist Teil des groß angelegten internationalen Forschungsprojekts der World Inequality Database, die von einem Forscherteam um Anthony Atkinson, Thomas Piketty und Emmanuel Saez initiiert wurde und bisher vor allem auf die Ungleichheit der Markteinkommen abzielt. Aber ist der Einkommensanteil bestimmter Bevölkerungsgruppen am Volkseinkommen das richtige Maß für Ungleichheit? Wie beurteilen Historiker und Soziologen die Entwicklung der Ungleichheit in Deutschland? Wirtschaftshistoriker Nikolaus Wolf dokumentiert die ungleiche Entwicklung von Regionen über das 20. Jahrhundert. Sozialhistoriker Hartmut Kaelble betont, dass auch andere Dimensionen wie Wohnen oder Bildung zu berücksichtigen sind. Dann ist der Trend steigender Ungleichheit weniger eindeutig. Auch bei der Gleichstellung von Frauen und Männern und der Verteilung von politischen Ämtern, sieht Soziologe Jan Delhey keinen Anstieg der Ungleichheit. Zudem spielt Ungleichheit im Alltag heute eine geringere Rolle als früher. Die Zugehörigkeit zur Elite wird heute weniger durch Statussymbole und Konsum demonstriert. Der historische Vergleich ermöglicht, die langfristigen Entwicklungen der Ungleichheit abzuwägen und die Gegenwart besser zu verstehen. Ist die Ungleichheit in Deutschland also heute besorgniserregend? Und was kann uns die deutsche Geschichte über Ursachen wachsender Ungleichheit lehren? Welche politischen Möglichkeiten gibt es, Ungleichheiten abzubauen?

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Early childhood care services and refugee children: Differences in attendance and consequences for integration

    We focus on early childhood education and care (ECEC) as one important channel of social integration for refugee families that recently arrived in Germany (between 2013 and 2016). First, we examine the attendance of ECEC of refugee children and investigate how patterns vary depending on individual and family characteristics, and institutional determinants of the location of residence. Then, we evaluate the impact of ECEC attendance of refugee children on the social integration of their parents. Our results show a substantial effect of children’s ECEC attendance on the social integration of their mothers. To estimate the causal effect, we adopt an instrumental variable approach exploiting the county-level variation in ECEC attendance rates. Furthermore, we control for a rich set of characteristics for refugee’s human capital, pre-migration history, and current situation in Germany, as well as for economic and institutional characteristics of the location of residence.

    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar Long-term effects of pregnancy and childbirth on sleep quality and duration of first-time and experienced mothers and fathers

    Study Objectives: This study examines the change in mothers’ and fathers’ sleep satisfaction and sleep duration across pre-pregnancy, pregnancy, and postpartum up to six years after birth and examines potential protective and risk factors for sleep during that time.
    Methods: Participants of a large representative panel study from Germany reported sleep satisfaction and sleep duration in yearly interviews. During the observation period (2008–2015), 2,367 parents reported birth of the first child, 2,666 parents reported birth of the second and 1,184 parents reported birth of the third child. Fixed-effects regression models were used to analyze changes in sleep associated with childbirth.
    Results: Sleep satisfaction and duration sharply declined with childbirth and reached a nadir during the first three months postpartum, with women more strongly affected (women: d = 0.79, 62 min; men: d = 0.16, 13 min for sleep satisfaction and duration compared with pre pregnancy). In both women and men, sleep satisfaction and duration did not fully recover for up to six years after birth of their first child. Breastfeeding was associated with a slight decrease in maternal sleep satisfaction (d = 0.32) and duration (14 min). Parental age, household income, and dual vs. single parenting were unrelated, or only very weakly related to improved sleep.
    Conclusions: While sleep satisfaction and duration decline particularly in the first months postpartum, both mothers’ and fathers’ sleep do not fully recover to pre-pregnancy levels up to six years after birth of the first child.

    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar Mentoring of Refugees - A randomized controlled trial with refugees and locals in Germany

    In the randomized controlled trial "Mentoring of Refugees", refugees participating in the 2017 wave of the IAB-BAMF-SOEP Survey of Refugees were asked about their interest in participating in a mentoring program. Those who declared their interest were randomly selected into treatment and control groups. The treatment group received a spot in a mentoring program. The mentoring program was organized by the social startup “Start with a Friend,” which is active in 14 German cities in which panel respondents were present.The startup connects recently arrived refugees with local counterparts who already live in Germany (most of these so-called “locals” are German citizens) to form friendships. The locals were recruited by Start with a Friend and answered three waves of a survey we administered at different stages of the mentoring relationship (before the first meeting, after six weeks, and after four months). With these data sources, we dispose of a unique data set to study mentoring processes as well as the impacts of these on refugees' integration.
    In our presentation, we will present the implementation of the randomized control trial, first results regarding the interest in participating in a mentoring initiative as well as challenges identified and lessons learned

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Parental leave and mothers' careers

    This paper analyzes the impact of the German Parental Leave Reform on mothers' careers in the long run. To identify the causal effect, we use a difference-in-difference approach that compares labor market outcomes of mothers who gave birth just before and right after the reform and net out seasonal effects by including the year before. Using the total population of the Integrated Employment Biographies, we observe that high-income mothers return later to the labor market. In contrast, we do not observe changes in the average duration of the employment interruptions for low income mothers. Seven to nine years after birth, we do not find effects on wages nor on the probability to hold a leadership positions for neither of the two groups. The result suggests that the longer career breaks for high-income mothers do not have negative effects on their subsequent careers.

    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar Intergenerational Health Mobility in Germany

    Studies of intergenerational mobility in heath are scarce. This is true despite the importance of health for welfare. I show first estimates of integenerational health mobility in Germany using several measures of self-reported health status (SRHS) during adulthood from the SOEP. I proof that there ist higher mobility in health than in income. Moreover, while my estimates for the intergenerational association in health is considerable lower than in the US, my estimates for relative mobility are comparable of that in the US. In addition, I contrast my estimates in intergenerational transmission in SRHS with those in physical and mental health, inferred with the Short-Form 12 questionnaire. While my estimates show that the intergenerational transmission in physical and SRHS are similar, we see notable larger intergenerational persistence in mental health. Further, a rich set of covariates allows me to provide suggestive evidence for potential mechanisms.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Birth Cohort Size Variation and the Estimation of Class Size Effects

    We present evidence that the practice of holding back poorly performing students affects estimates of the impact of class size on student outcomes based on within-school variation of cohort size over time. This type of variation is commonly used to identify class size effects. We build a theoretical model in which cohort size is subject to random shocks and students whose performance falls below a threshold are retained. Our model predicts that initial birth cohort size is mechanically related to the grade-level share of previously retained students once these cohorts reach higher grades. This compositional effect gives rise to an upward bias in class size effects exploiting variation in birth cohort size. Using administrative  data on school enrollment for all primary schools in one federal state of Germany, we find support for this compositional effect. Correcting for the resulting bias in a unique dataset on standardized test scores for the full student population of third graders, we find that not only are smaller classes beneficial for language and math test scores, but also for reducing grade repetition.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen The Impacts of the Affordable Care Act on Low-Income Household Finances

    This paper investigates the impact of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA, "Obamacare") on out-of-pocket medical expenditures and access to health care for households across the income distribution. Using a DDD identification strategy and simulated eligibility instruments, I parameterize three of the central policy provisions of the ACA: Medicaid expansion, insurance exchange subsidies and individual mandate penalties, and assess their separate effects. I find that all three policies decreased the OOP of targeted households at the bottom of the income distribution and increased utilization of medical services and access to health care.

    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar She's Leaving Home: A Large Sample Investigation of the Empty Nest Syndrome

    This presentation presents recent research about the Empty Nest Syndrome using the SOEP. Using life satisfaction, the investigation considers the subjective well-being of mothers and/or fathers following the  departure  of  the  last  child  from  the  parental  home. Following a brief literature review and discussion of economic considerations, empirical results are presented from both fixed effects analysis and entropy balancing. In both cases, evidence for the existence of an Empty nest Syndrome are found. Moderators and confounders are also uncovered, highlighting what may exacerbate or ameliorate somewhat the lower well-being of new Empty Nesters.
