We take into consideration two different areas of shocking events: the job...

In this commentary I will first give some general remarks on cross country comparisons. Then I discuss the role of the informal sector which is the most important pillar of all LTC systems. ...

The New Top-Wealth Sample - First Impressions

Top-wealth holders are typically underrepresented or completely missing in population surveys. The lack of comprehensive national registers on high-wealth individuals in many countries challenged previous attempts to remedy this under-representation. In a novel research design, we draw on public data on the shareholding structures of companies as a sampling frame. Our design builds on...

This paper is the first to analyze the importance of family background for health in a cross-country comparison. Using comparable survey data we study sibling correlations in five health outcomes in...

2D:4D and Economic Preferences in a Large Representative Sample of Germans

Over the last decade, there has been a growing interest in the association between 2D:4D, a putative marker for prenatal testosterone exposure, and economic preferences. The results are mixed, and part of the inconclusiveness may come from the typically limited sample sizes as well as the many “researcher degrees of freedom” in the analysis. To firmly test if 2D:4D is associated...

Künstliche Intelligenz kann beim Kampf gegen Antibiotikaresistenzen helfen

Studie am DIW Berlin zeigt: Systematische Analyse umfassender Patientendaten mit einem Algorithmus hilft, Antibiotika bei Harnwegsinfektionen gezielter zu verschreiben – Breiterer Einsatz von Künstlicher Intelligenz im deutschen Gesundheitssystem mit Potential, aber durch dezentrale Struktur erschwert


"KI ersetzt den Arzt nicht, kann aber bei der Diagnose eine wertvolle Hilfe sein": Interview mit Hannes Ullrich

Herr Ullrich, Sie haben am Beispiel von Antibiotikaverschreibungen in Dänemark untersucht, wie datenbasierte Vorhersagen helfen können Antibiotikaresistenzen einzudämmen. Warum haben Sie diese Untersuchung mit Daten aus Dänemark gemacht? Wir konnten diese Studien in Dänemark machen, weil dort insbesondere das Gesundheitssystem eine zentralisierte Datenverarbeitung nutzt. ...
