Panel Survey Methods Workshop 2016

The aim of the workshop is to foster discussion and initiate methodological research specific to the collection of panel survey data. The format of the meeting will be informal, designed to encourage interaction and collaboration. This will be the fifth biennial PSMW. Previous workshops took place in Colchester, UK; Mannheim, Germany; Melbourne, Australia; and Ann Arbor, USA.

The main topics of the 2016 PSMW in Berlin include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Measurement error, including panel conditioning, seam effects, recall error, and dependent interviewing
  • Mixed-mode data collection, including effects on cost, measurement error, attrition, and logistics and methods for identifying selection versus measurement effects
  • Attrition and non-response, including effects of survey design features, assessment of bias, methods to minimize effects, and adjustment methods (weighting and imputation)
  • Role of interviewers in longitudinal surveys
  • Challenges of cross-national longitudinal data
  • Paradata, including collection and use in longitudinal surveys
  • Sampling issues, including refreshment sampling and following rules
  • Use of administrative data in longitudinal surveys
  • Other innovations in longitudinal surveys, including biomarkers, online panels, use of new technologies, linking data sources, consent issues, and experimental designs.

Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Income Taxation, Benefit Programs and the Inequality of Lifetime Income

(joint with Peter Haan and Victoria Prowse)

We show how taxes and three transfer programs—unemployment insurance, social assistance and disability benefits—affect the inequality of lifetime income, and we explore how well taxes and transfer programs mitigate lifetime income risk due to labor market frictions. Calculations based on income trajectories generated from a dynamic life-cycle model show that taxes and transfer programs eliminate about 20% of the inequality of lifetime personal income as measured by the Gini coefficient. Social assistance is the most cost-effective transfer program for reducing lifetime income inequality followed by unemployment insurance; disability benefits are generally received by individuals in the middle of the lifetime income distribution and, therefore, are not strongly redistributive on a lifetime basis. Social assistance eliminates the majority of the lifetime income risk due to labor market frictions. Meanwhile, taxes become less progressive as frictions increase meaning that taxes do nothing to mitigate friction-driven lifetime income risk.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen The effect of compressing secondary schooling on higher education decisions

    The sustainability of social security systems in many European countries is at risk due to population aging. Many suggestions to increase the share of working-age individuals deal with raising the age for full pension eligibility. A fundamental education reform in Germany extends the working life from the other side: A major education reform in Germany reduced the length of the academic high school track from 9 to 8 years, while leaving the number of overall instruction hours unchanged. Accordingly, the fixed number of instruction hours was distributed over fewer years of schooling, such that learning intensity and weekly workload increased. We investigate the consequences of this so-called G8 reform on students’ higher education decisions. Based on a difference-in-differences approach using high-quality, administrative data on all students in Germany, we find that the G8 reform not only resulted in delayed university enrollment, but also decreased general enrollment rates. Moreover, students' study progress in higher education is negatively affected.
    Our results imply that the G8 reform leads to a reduction in human capital and that the main goal of reducing age at labor market entry may not be fully achieved.

    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar Special: Evaluating patterns of income growth when status matters: a robust approach

    Flaviana Palmisano is a lecturer at the University of Rome LUMSA. Before, she was FNR-Marie Curie fellow at the University of Luxembourg (2014-2016). She holds a PhD in Economics of the University of Bari (2008-2011). Her research interests are in the field of distributional analysis, with a focus on the measurement of the dynamics of poverty, inequality, income mobility and equality of opportunity.

    The presentation might be of interest for anyone who intends to work with the harmonized panel data from the Cross National Equivalent File (CNEF) which includes eight country-specific surveys: the British Household Panel Study (BHPS), the Household Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia (HILDA), the Korea Labor and Income Panel Study (KLIPS), the Swiss Household Panel (SHP), the Canadian Survey of Labour and Income Dynamics (SLID), the German Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP), the Russia Longitudinal Monitoring Survey, and the U.S. Panel Study of Income Dynamics (PSID). Charlotte Bartels is your contact person at the DIW for all things concerning CNEF (such as data access).

    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar Gifts and Inheritances: How do They Shape the Wealth Distribution

    Using Data from the Socio-Economic Panel, I estimate the impact of intergenerational transfers on the level and the inequality of wealth. I particularly focus on the propensity of households to save from gifts and inheritances: While many studies on wealth inequality assume that these transfers are fully saved, households typically add only a certain share of them to their previously accumulated wealth. I find that households on average save only around 60 Cents of an inherited Euro. Quantile regression estimates then reveal that the propensity to save increases almost monotonically over the wealth distribution. Using the fitted values, I simulate the wealth distribution with and without transfers. I however do not find evidence that the heterogeneity in the propensity to save translates in a disequalizing effect of intergenerational transfers on the wealth distribution.

    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar Regional childcare availability and the career attainment of women

    Recently women’s educational attainment and occupational status at the entry into the labour market increased toward closing the gap with men’s. Upon childbirth however, women’s career progression stagnates. Research has shown that while the differences in labour market success between men and women without children are minor, family formation seems to be a key process that brings about differences in the career success of men and women. Public child care arrangements are thought to partially soften mothers’ burdens of combing work and family obligations and therewith should reduce the motherhood career gap in occupational status. Moreover, the availability of child care may influence employers’ evaluation of the anticipated performance of mothers.

    Drawing on the recent expansion of child care facilities in Germany we study the link between regional child care availability and women’s’ occupational status. Data on the development of occupational status over the career stem from the German Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP). We link the SOEP data with regional information on the rates of child care attendance. The attendance rates for children aged under three years more than doubled between 2006 and 2012, albeit with variations across districts. Preliminary results of multilevel growth and fixed effects models suggest that levels of child care availability have a very limited effect on mothers’ status. Our findings cast doubt on the potential of child care availability to lower the motherhood career gap in occupational status.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Income and the Utilization of Long-Term Care: Evidence from Short-Term Income Shocks

    Ex post moral hazard poses a concern to private insurers and to policymakers considering the expansion of publicly subsidized health insurance.  This is especially true of private long-term care insurance markets in the United States, which are small and have been contracting in recent years.  A significant publicly administered option was passed as part of the Affordable Care Act but then repealed.  Long-term care thus constitutes the largest out-of-pocket health care expense facing the elderly in the United States today.  In formulating policy to mitigate this risk, it is important to distinguish moral hazard arising from price effects, which may be considered socially inefficient spending, from moral hazard arising from income effects, which may represent a socially efficient increase in access to care.  Little evidence exists, however, on the effects of income on utilization of long-term care services.  In this paper, we examine the purchase of long-term care services following plausibly exogenous positive shocks to income.  We find that positive income shocks lead to a greater probability of purchase of home-based long-term care but not of nursing home care.

    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar The Impact of Private and Public Childcare Provision on the Distribution of Children's Incomes in Germany

    This paper investigates the impact of extending disposable cash income of children by the monetary value of private and public childcare provision on economic inequality in Germany between 2009 and 2012. It takes account of the multidimensionality of children's well-being and access to economic resources. Combining survey data from the Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP) and Familien in Deutschland (FiD) with administrative data from the German Federal Statistical Office, extended income inequality is found to be significantly lower than cash income inequality across all years. In addition, extended income inequality tends to decrease over time, whereas cash income inequality slightly increases. This difference is due to the expansion of public childcare provision, which profits children living with single parents most, and gives additional evidence for its equalizing potential as a policy instrument.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Capturing actual work hours and preferred work hours in Germany

    The estimation of over- and underemployment in Germany is normally based on data of Mikrozensus (Ehing 2014: 4) or of the Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP). However, the results differ and may lead to different political conclusions. A recent publication of the Statistisches Bundesamt (Rengers 2015), which is based on the Mikrozensus 2014, points out that for 9.3 percent of the overall labour force actual work hours and preferred work hours differ. A majority of them would prefer to increase their actual work hours. Contrary to that, estimations based on SOEP 2012 (Holst/Wieber 2014) show that 71 percent of all employees face a mismatch between actual and preferred work hours with a majority preferring a reduction of their work hours.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen What drives ethnic de-segregation: selective mobility of immigrants out of co-ethnic neighbourhoods

    The value of segregated neighbourhoods in the process of integration is highly debated with often ideologically charged arguments. This study investigates the effect of socio-economic and cultural assimilation on selective mobility of immigrants. For that, detailed neighbourhood and housing market information are linked to representative household panel data for Germany. The data allows distinguishing the ethnic composition of households and their neighbours. This enables a fine-grained assessment on the relation between co-ethnicity and mobility while controlling for regional supply and demand of housing. As a result, higher income and being a second-generation immigrant are associated with moving out (vs. moving among) co-ethnic neighbourhoods. Other indicators of cultural assimilation such as German language proficiency, holding a German passport and affiliation to one’s home country show no significant effect. Feeling generally disadvantaged due to origin has also little explanatory power for the residential behaviour of immigrants. However, experienced discrimination in the housing is particularly apparent among out movers. The results are in line with the spatial assimilation model but emphasize structural and not cultural terms that drive moving out of co-ethnic neighbourhoods. The popular accusation of ethnic self-segregation should therefore be revisited and contrasted with barriers for residential and social mobility among immigrants.

    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar Personality and Marriage: Selection or Causal Effects?

    Personality traits (also called noncognitive skills) are an important predictor for many economic outcomes and indicators of wellbeing, such as labor force participation, income, and health. While it is well established that personality changes during childhood and can be influenced by interventions, much less is known about whether personality is malleable during young adulthood. This is because of the difficulty of separating correlation and causal effects for a period of life where there are few controlled or natural experiments available.

    In this research, we empirically investigate whether marriage during young adulthood affects personality. To separate selection into marriage by personality from a causal effect of marriage in young adulthood on personality, we use as identification strategy the sharp decrease in marriage rates in East Germany induced by the German reunification.

    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar Political Socialization after Parental Separation: Breaking with the Traditional Family Model

    The increase in divorce rates over the past decades challenges the traditional image of the two-parent family. Yet, this traditional view of the family remains most often central to political socialization research. Therefore, this study investigates how parental separation affects the political socialization process, by comparing adults who did and did not experience parental separation while living at home. I firstly expect that parental separation yields more left-wing ideologies and more favourable attitudes towards redistribution, because of the economic deprivation that is often caused by parental separation. Secondly, I expect more liberal attitudes towards sexual and family ethics among adult children of whom the parents have separated during their childhood, because of the experience of parents breaking with traditional family norms. As a first step, pan-European multilevel analyses are performed using the European Values Study to investigate to what extent the political preferences and attitudes towards sexual and family ethics of adult children with divorced parents differ, from those without separated parents. Secondly, household data from Germany (G-SOEP) is used, that allows to control for parental preferences, and to estimate sibling fixed effect models in which the effect of divorce on political attitudes is investigated, by comparing siblings from the same family with differential experiences regarding their parental separation.
