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.

    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar The Minimum Wage and Fair Wage Perceptions

    Whether workers feel they are paid fairly is an important determinant of their job satisfaction and productivity. Minimum wage laws aim for fairer wages for low-income workers. But, what are the impacts of minimum wage laws on workers’ fairness perceptions? Using survey data from German Socio-Economic Panel, we show that the introduction of minimum wage law in Germany increased the stated fair wage of affected workers. We, then experimentally investigate whether the rise in fair wage is a mechanical response to obligatory wage increases or whether the designated minimum wage serves as a reference point for fair wages. We do not find that the minimum wage acts as a reference point. Further, our experimental results suggest that the existence of a minimum wage does not change what wage is normatively perceived as fair.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Was Marx Right? Income Inequality, Market Concentration and Voting in late 19th Century Germany

    The  recent  debate  on  the  causes  and  consequences  of  income  inequality shows striking similarity to the debate in many parts of Europe before 1914. Today and back then the focus was on the role of capital share and market concentration as a cause for rising inequality.  In this study we analyze the drivers and consequences of income inequality exploiting a newly constructed regional panel for the German Empire, 1874-1913.  Our data features large variation in terms of inequality across 30 Prussian districts (Regierungsbezirke) and dynamic changes over time, both  within  the  common  institutional  framework of the German Empire.  Both,  capital share and inequality are strongly associated with rising market concentration.  Further, inequality had a strong effect on political polarization.  However, in seeming contrast to modern results but in line with neoclassical political economy, income inequality in 19th century Germany was mainly linked to support for the political left, while the relationship with the political right is much weaker.

    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?

    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar Wage premia for skills: complementarity between cognitive and non-cognitive skills

    Abstract:
    I present evidence on the association between individuals' cognitive abilities, personality traits, and earnings in Poland. I find that cognitive skills and certain personality traits are complements. In particular, I find that cognitive skills and emotional stability are complementary, with neurotic individuals having significantly lower returns to their cognitive skills. Furthermore, my results indicate that agreeableness, neuroticism, and – surprisingly – grit are penalised significantly in the labour market; and that there is a positive relationship between conscientiousness and wages. Finally, I observe that, contrary to previous findings, women and men have similar returns to personality traits. I use well-established measures of cognitive skills and personality: namely, competence tests from the PIAAC survey to assess cognitive skills and the Big Five inventory and the Grit scale to assess personality traits.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Initial Conditions and Nation Building: Evidence from East Germany

    At the end of World War II, 40% of the pre-arranged Soviet occupation zone in Germany was under the control of the Allied Expeditionary Force. This occupation was very short-lived and the Red Army gained full control of the Soviet zone less than two months after the German surrender. However, this paper shows that the brief Allied occupation systematically increased opposition to the budding authoritarian regime that the USSR set up in what would become the German Democratic Republic (East Germany). We exploit variation in the identity of the initial occupation army within the Soviet occupation zone, stemming from the idiosyncratic line of contact separating Soviet and Allied forces. We show that support for the state party (SED) during the last free elections in 1946 was systematically lower in the areas initially occupied by the Allies, while the incidence of protests during the 1953 uprising was higher. This increased resistance to the regime in the Allied-liberated region persists until the 1989 protests leading to the demise of the regime.

    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar Health-Check Up Utilization in UK: Panel Evidence from the BHPS 1992 - 2008

    This analysis has investigated the determinants of screening uptake for the six different screening examinations (breast and cervical cancer screening examination, blood pressure check, cholesterol level test, eyesight test and dental screening). Same type of screening examination and also possible spillover effects from one type of screening examination to another other type of screening examinations have been investigated with univariate and bivariate dynamic panel probit models. The dependent variables were the participation in the screening examination in the recent year. A Wooldridge-type estimator with initial conditions have been used as econometric method. The samples consisted of individuals from the British Household Panel Survey (BHPS) for the time period from 1992 to 2008. The analysis has showed the high relevance of past screening behavior and the importance of state dependency for the same and the other type of screening examinations even after controlling for covariates and unobserved heterogeneity. The uptake for breast and cervical cancer screening examinations have been higher when the same type of screening examination have been done one or three years earlier or taking part in previous screening examinations for the other four screening examinations. The result is also in accordance with the NHS breast and cervical cancer screening programmes and with  the recommendations for the other four screening examinations in UK. Positive spillover effects has existed between the screening examinations with regard to blood pressure check and cholesterol level test and also breast and cervical cancer examinations. Other socioeconomic and health related variables have had non-uniform results in the six different screening examinations.

    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.
