Migranten in Berlin: schlechte Jobchancen, geringe Einkommen, hohe Transferabhängigkeit

Der Anteil der Personen mit Migrationshintergrund ist in Berlin nicht höher als in vergleichbaren deutschen Städten. Wegen der schlechten Wirtschaftsentwicklung und der allgemein hohen Unterbeschäftigung in Berlin treten die mit Migration verbundenen ökonomischen und sozialen Phänomene hier jedoch besonders deutlich zutage. Dabei kommt zweierlei zusammen: Zum einen ist in den großen Städten die Erwerbslosigkeit ...

What Drives Personal Consumption? The Role of Housing and Financial Wealth

I construct a new dataset with financial and housing wealth in 16 countries and investigate the effect of wealth on consumption. The baseline estimation method based on the sluggishness of consumption growth implies that the long-run marginal propensity to consume out of total wealth averaged across countries is 5 cents. I find substantial heterogeneity in the wealth effects: the individual country ...

Using the P90/P10 Index to Measure US Inequality Trends with Current Population Survey Data: A View from Inside the Census Bureau Vaults

The March Current Population Survey (CPS) is the primary data source for estimation of levels and trends in labor earnings and income inequality in the USA. Time-inconsistency problems related to top coding in theses data have led many researchers to use the ratio of the 90th and 10th percentiles of these distributions (P90/P10) rather than a more traditional summary measure of inequality. With access ...

Risk Aversion and Reservation Wages

This study examines the relationship between individual risk aversion and reservation wages using a novel set of direct measures of individual risk attitudes from the German Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP). We find that risk aversion has a significantly negative impact on the level of reservation wages. Moreover, we show that the elasticity of the reservation wage with respect to unemployment benefits ...

Keeping up with the Schmidts: An Empirical Test of Relative Deprivation Theory in the Neighbourhood Context

We test empirically whether people's life satisfaction depends on their relative income position in the neighbourhood, drawing on a unique dataset, the German Socio-economic Panel Study (SOEP) matched with micro-marketing indicators of population characteristics. Relative deprivation theory suggests that individuals are happier the better their relative income position in the neighbourhood is. To test ...
