Employing data from the German Socio-Economic Panel, the pattern of average occupational mobility is documented. Worker reallocation is found to be strongly procyclical. Its determinants at the individual level are then investigated while controlling for unobserved ...

The Impact of International Migration and Remittances on the Labor-Supply Behavior of Those Left behind: Evidence from Egypt

We differentiate between a 'pure' migration ("M") effect and the joint effect of migration and remittance income ("MR") and evaluate these effects for men and women separately. ...

Poor Marks for Germany's Isolationist Policy

The free movement of workers within the European Union does not place a burden on labor markets or social services. This is the conclusion of a recent study on the development and effects of east-to-west migration in the wake of EU enlargement in 2004 and 2007. In this light, Germany's restrictive immigration policy received poor marks. Recent measures-such as Germany's labor migration regulation law, ...

Goodbye Germany - und dann? Erste Ergebnisse einer Pilotstudie zur Befragung von Auswanderern aus Deutschland

Anders als bei der Analyse von Zuwanderung existieren bislang kaum wissenschaftlich verwertbare Daten über das Ausmaß und die Beweggründe von Auswanderungen aus Deutschland. Ferner gibt es nahezu keine Informationen über die Lebensbedingungen der Auswanderer nach Ankunft in ihrer neuen Heimat. Insofern verwundert es kaum, dass sich die deutsche Migrationsforschung derzeit hauptsächlich auf aggregierte ...

First, we identify ...

Does Intermarriage Pay Off? A Panel Data Analysis

Taking advantage of the panel structure of the data, the impact of intermarriage on labor market productivity as measured by earnings is examined. Contrarily to previous studies which rely on instrumental variable techniques, selection issues are addressed within a fixed effects framework. The model accounts for short and long term effects as well as general differences between those who intermarry ...
