Short- and Mid-Term Effects of a Parenting Program on Maternal Well-Being: Evidence for More and Less Advantaged Mothers

This paper evaluates how a light-touch parenting program for parents of children below school entry age affects maternal well-being. We first analyze data from a randomized controlled trial focusing on more advantaged parents. Second, we use a sample of mothers from deprived neighborhoods, for which we generate a control group using additional data. Overall, results show a relatively large

Who is Thinking of Leaving Germany? The Role of Postmaterialism, Risk Attitudes, and Life-Satisfaction on Emigration Intentions of German Nationals

The subject of emigration from affluent countries, such as Germany, raises the question of who are more likely to leave their highly-industrialized countries known for high living standards, stable political scene and prosperous economy. Using the theory of postmaterialism (Inglehart, 1997) this paper explores emigration intentions of German nationals taking into account country’s specific socio

The Impact of Having Children on Domain-Specific Life Satisfaction: A Quasi-Experimental Longitudinal Investigation Using the Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP) Data

Longitudinal studies have documented improvements in parents’ life satisfaction due to childbearing, followed by postpartum adaptation back to baseline. However, the details underlying this process remain largely unexplored. Based on past literature, set-point theory, and results from an exploratory sample, we investigated empirically how first childbirth affected satisfaction with specific

Internal Migration, Social Stratification and Dynamic Effects on Subjective Well Being

Using German panel data and relying on internal relocation, this paper investigates the anticipation and adaptation of subjective well-being (SWB) in the course of migration. We hypothesize that SWB correlates with the process of migration, and that such correlations are at least partly socially stratified. Our fixed-effects regressions show no evidence of any anticipation of SWB before the event of

Modernes Rollenverständnis verbessert die Zufriedenheit der Eltern

Dank der zunehmenden Freiheit, zwischen Elternschaft und Erwerbstätigkeit zu wählen und die Kinderbetreuung individuell zu gestalten, sind Mütter und Väter heute zufriedener mit ihrem Leben als vor 20 oder 30 Jahren. Das zeigt eine Studie auf Basis von Daten der für Deutschland repräsentativen Langzeitstudie Sozio-oekonomisches Panel (SOEP) am DIW Berlin, die eine

Being Unengaged at Work but Still Dedicating Time and Energy: A Longitudinal Study

Overcommitted individuals cannot withdraw from work obligations. We examine whether work goal engagement attenuates the negative effects of overcommitment on work and health outcomes. For overcommitted professionals it should matter whether they dedicate time and energy to work goals they feel bound to or to goals they do not feel attached to (unengaged overcommitment). In a longitudinal study of

Wie (in)stabil ist die Lebenszufriedenheit? Eine Sequenzanalyse mit Daten des Sozio-oekonomischen Panels (SOEP)

Die vorliegende Studie befasst sich mit der Analyse der Stabilität der Lebenszufriedenheit, auf Basis der Paneldaten des sozio-oekonomischen Panels (SOEP). Benutzt wird das neuartige Konzept der longitudinalen Entropie und so können bereits in der Literatur vorliegende Analysen zur (In)Stabilität der Lebenszufriedenheit ergänzt und vertieft werden. Es wird gezeigt, dass

Can Happiness Apps Generate Nationally Representative Datasets? - a Case Study Collecting Data on People’s Happiness Using the German Socio-Economic Panel

In the last few years, apps have become an important tool to collect data. Especially in the case of data on people’s happiness, two projects have received substantial attention from both the media and the scientific world: “Track your happiness” from Killingsworth and Gilbert (Science, 330, 932-932, 2010), and “Mappiness,” from MacKerron (2012). Both happiness apps used the experience sampling

Wealth Changes and Their Impact on Subjective Well-Being

Besides income, wealth plays an important role for the economic situation as well as the satisfaction of persons. So far the relationship between income as a flow measure and subjective well-being (SWB) is widely described. However, research in the connection between wealth and subjective well-being is scarce. This is predominately due to a lack of adequate microdata. In this paper we make use of

Multidimensional Inequality Analysis using SOEP data and the Constitution of Germany

Well-being inequality is a subject that has being extensively covered and which is widely discussed also in the political and civil environment. However, the majority of the studies done in this field are still limited to the analysis of monetary variables, like income, wealth or expenditure, completely forsaking non-monetary elements such as education, health or employment on the basis that
