SOEP Brown Bag Seminar Dynastic Inequality and Persistence of Human Capital Over Three Generations

Empirical research on the persistence of inequality has been largely restricted to a two generational framework, mainly due to a lack of appropriate data on multiple generations. At the same time, it is often assumed that the intergenerational persistence of socio-economic outcomes follows a first-order Markov process; i.e. the influence of ancestors vanishes within few generations. However, an increasing number of studies show that this assumption should be revisited. This study aims to quantify the extend of persistence of human capital over three generations, comparing the US and Germany. Hereby, we make use of the rich informational content of nationally representative household survey data; the Panel Study of Income Dynamics (PSID) and the Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP). Applying different measures, we evaluate the persistence of human capital over a span of over 120 years. Our results highlight a relatively high persistence of human capital over three generations in both countries, while intergenerational mobility is slightly lower in Germany than in the US. Finally, we cannot reject the hypothesis that the grandparental coefficient is higher than the one obtained by an iterated regression procedure assuming an AR(1) process, shedding light on the long-run aspects of equality of opportunity within the two societies.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Full or partial retirement? Effects of the pension incentives and increasing retirement age in the Netherlands and the United States

    The share of the older workers in the labor force has increased due to population aging and pension reforms in many countries. However, rules of the public and private pension schemes and restrictions from the employers still require large populations of older workers with possibly heterogeneous work preferences to retire fully at a given age. We study the preferences of older people for a rich set of retirement trajectories characterized by early or delayed full retirement as well as partial retirement at various ages in the Netherlands and the United States. Two in five prefer partial retirement over early or delayed abrupt full retirement. This suggests that partial retirement can substantially increase the utility derived from work in old age. Furthermore, we study the effects of the pension incentives and increasing retirement age on the preferences to delay retirement fully or partially as means of reducing public expenditure. Individuals want to use partial retirement to extend their work lives if deferring pension rights are made actuarially attractive or if pension accruals are made less generous. On the other hand, as the retirement age increases, individuals want to retire early or work part-time instead of full-time. The comparison of the results between the Netherlands and the United States shows that while people in the Netherlands are responsive to a substitution effect of higher pensions, people in the United States are responsive to an income effect of higher pensions.

    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar The Determinants of Natives’ Intergroup Relationships with Migrants - An Analysis using SOEP-data

     Private intergroup relationships between natives and migrants, such as friendships and companionships, are traditionally treated as important indicator of migrant integration. In addition, they are discussed as a facilitating factor in migrants’ search for high-quality work, as a way to diminish mutual prejudice and to break stereotypes and finally as opportunity for natives to acquire skills to deal with challenges beyond the borders of their home-country. In my analysis, I try to identify personal characteristics and environmental factors that influence German natives’ personal relationships with persons of non-German origin. Ego-centered network research on intergroup relationships has so far neglected the native part of such relationships in favor of the non-native side. Information on over 18,000 German natives’ visiting contacts at home were collected by the Socio-Economic Panel Study (SOEP) between 2007 and 2015 in five waves and thereby enable longitudinal analyses that focus on intra-personal changes. Exploiting SOEP-survey-data enriched with small-scale neighborhood information, a wide range of possible determinants, including occupational status, neighborhood composition and attitudes towards migration are researched.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Labor Market Frictions and Retirement Timing in Germany – A Structural Model and Subsequent Ex-Ante Policy Evaluation

    Losing a job after age 60 in Germany is virtually equivalent to the end of one’s working life. Roughly 25% of job exits after age 60 are involuntary with considerable variation along region, age, tenure and education. Considering this, I estimate a structural model of retirement timing in the presence of labor market frictions. A subsequent ex-ante policy analysis is meant to illustrate the likely consequences of shifting the regular retirement age to 67 (“Rente mit 67”) in terms of average retirement age. Scenarios without frictions provide an upper bound for the reaction potential of the work force and likely to overestimate the true effect.

    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar Parental socioeconomic status and the quality of early childhood education and care: Evidence from Germany

    (joint with Pia S. Schober and C. Katharina Spieß)
    In Germany, large heterogeneity exists with respect to the quality of early childhood education and care (ECEC) institutions. We examine whether children from socioeconomically advantaged families face more favorable conditions when starting their educational career by attending ECEC centers of better quality compared to more disadvantaged children. We exploit a new dataset combining the SOEP (wave 2013) with information from the K²ID-SOEP extension study on the ECEC facilities attended by respondents’ offspring. Our final sample consists of 764 children attending 700 day-care groups in 646 centers across Germany. We test if maternal employment status, parental education, children’s migration background and family income are systematically linked to a wide range of indicators capturing aspects of structural, orientation and process quality. Our results point to significant associations of some indicators mainly with work status and parental education, disadvantaging children of the least educated women and women working part-time or less. We find these relationships primarily for quality indicators that are easy to observe or enquire about for parents.

    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar Beyond Filial Piety: The Structural and Cultural Determinants of Intergenerational Contact in China

    This is the first representative study to assess the main determinants of intergenerational contact in China. It used a representative sample of 15,399 child-parent dyads to predict the frequency of (a) face-to-face contacts (b) contacts by (mobile) phone, text messaging and other electronic means and (c) all contacts; focusing in particular on the role of migration as well as children's gender, marital status and education level. The findings showed that distance was a major barrier to face-to-face contact in China, although most migrant children called regularly. They also indicated higher overall levels of contact with sons than with daughters, which can be attributed to the traditional norm of filial piety. At the same time, it was found that unmarried daughters and highly educated daughters had more contact with parents than their male counterparts, which suggests a weakening of gendered family practices in the wake of China's demographic and economic transformation.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Labor supply and the pension system - Evidence from a Regression Kink Design

    This paper uses a Regression Kink Design to estimate the labor supply effects of changes in the financial incentives for early retirement. In particular we examine the effect of the gradual introduction of pension deductions for early retirement according to the 1992 German pension reform on the actual retirement age of women eligible for women old-age pensions. This reform allows to exploit exogenous variation in  benefits using kinks in the schedule of pension benefits depending on the birth cohort. For the empirical analysis we use high-quality administrative data from the German Federal Pension Insurance (VSKT) and find positive and significant effects of the reform on the actual retirement age.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Family structure and educational attainment in East and West Germany during the 20th century – a sibling analysis

    This study investigates whether the link between family dissolution and children’s educational attainment is contingent on the broader social and institutional context. The comparison of former capitalist West Germany and socialist East Germany presents an excellent case study as these countries differed considerably with regard to ideology and policies regarding families, schooling and labour markets. We base our analyses on the data of the German Life History Study that covers cohorts born throughout the twentieth century. Results of sibling fixed effect analyses show that growing up in a dissolved family in the former West was detrimental for educational attainment. In contrast, in the East with its comprehensive schooling system and extensive support for families and working mothers, family dissolution was not related to educational outcomes. The effects of family dissolution may thus be reinforced in stratified systems and possibly softened by social policies equalizing the social and economic situation attributed to dissolved families.

    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar Why has Income Inequality in Germany Increased from 2002 to 2011?

    To assess the impact of changes the tax and transfer system (tax reductions and a controversial overhaul of the transfer system) and in wage rates on income inequality in Germany from 2002 to 2011, I simulate counterfactual income distributions and calculate marginal effects. Applying behavioral microsimulation and wage regressions to data from the Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP), I estimate marginal contributions including behavioral responses. The simulations show that tax and transfer reforms have had an inequality reducing effect. Depending on the order of the decomposition, changes in labor market prices are shown to have led to either an overall decrease in income inequality or to have had a negligible effect. Thus, the increase in inequality was mainly due to other factors. Graphical representations of the counterfactual distributions are provided.

    Workshop: Scientific Use Files aus verknüpften Sozialdaten

    Der Workshop thematisiert Notwendigkeit und Möglichkeit, der Wissenschaft brauchbare Scientific Use Files aus mit Sozialdaten verknüpften Surveydaten zusätzlich und jenseits von Gastarbeitsplätzen und Daten-Fernverarbeitung zur Verfügung zu stellen. Erhöht die Vielzahl der Merkmale in verknüpften Daten das Deanonymisierungsrisiko und die Attraktivität für potentielle Datenangreifer? Sind für verknüpfte Daten weiter gehende Eingriffe zur Herstellung von faktischer Anonymität erforderlich als für reine Survey- oder reine Sozialdaten? Braucht die Wissenschaft Scientific Use Files überhaupt noch?

    Anmeldung nur noch nach Rücksprache mit Klaudia Erhardt möglich.

    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar Rejectionism & Engagement: How Hostility Affects Immigrant Minorities’ Political Behavior

    How does xenophobic behavior and radical right-wing activity affect ethnic and immigrant minorities' political behavior? The extant literature on radical right-wing and xenophobic politics focuses exclusively on what drives these anti-immigrant political attitudes and behaviors, but does not account for how the targets of this animosity and threat react. Alternatively, the literature on immigrant and ethnic minority political behavior extensively examines the role of institutions and policy, thereby focusing on the macro-level effects on micro-level behavior, but overlooks the meso-level in which the social and political environment can  play a huge role. Using federal data on radical right-wing events and the German Socio-Economic Panel Survey, this project examines how individuals with a migration-background react politically to xenophobic threats.
