Möglichkeiten und Grenzen der partiellen Rangdatenanalyse in der sozialwissenschaftlichen Forschung: Untersuchungen zu sozialen Netzwerken und Hilfeleistungen

Pflegebedürfnisse werden zum erheblichen Teil durch professionelle Dienste befriedigt. Ein wichtiger Eckpfeiler in der pflegerischen Versorgung stellen darüber hinausfamiliäre Beziehungen wie Partner und Kinder, sowie Freundes- und Nachbarschaftsnetzwerke dar. Diese Ressourcen stehen aber nicht allen Personen gleichermaßen zur Verfügung, sondern sind in der Bevölkerung ungleich verteilt. Wir beschäftigen ...

Measuring State Dependence in Individual Poverty Histories When there Is Feedback to Employment Status and Household Composition

This paper argues that the assumption of strict exogeneity, which is usually invoked in estimating models of state dependence with unobserved heterogeneity, is violated in the poverty context as important variables determining contemporaneous poverty status, in particular employment status and household composition, are likely to be influenced by past poverty outcomes. Therefore, a model of state dependence ...

Does Accounting for Spatial Effects Help Forecasting the Growth of Chinese Provinces?

In this paper, we make multi-step forecasts of the annual growth rates of the real GRP for each of the 31 Chinese provinces simultaneously. Beside the usual panel data models, we use panel models that explicitly account for spatial dependence between the GRP growth rates. In addition, the possibility of spatial effects being different for different groups of provinces (Interior and Coast) is allowed. ...

To Claim or Not to Claim: Estimating Non-take-up of Social Assistance in Germany and the Role of Measurement Error

Using representative micro data from the German Socio-Economic Panel Study (SOEP) for the year 2002, we analyse non-take-up behaviour of Social Assistance (SA) inGermany. According to our simulation as much as 67 percent of the eligible population did not claim SA in that year which is slightly higher than reported in previous work. We particularly emphasize the role of measurement error in estimating ...

The Impact of Household Capital Income on Income Inequality: A Factor Decomposition Analysis for Great Britain, Germany and the USA

This paper analyses the contribution of capital income to income inequality in a cross-national comparison. Using micro-data from the Cross-National Equivalent File (CNEF) for three prominent panel studies, namely the BHPS for Great Britain, the SOEP for West Germany, and the PSID for the USA, a factor decomposition method described by Shorrocks (1982) is applied. The factor decomposition of disposable ...

The Dynamics of European Inflation Expectations

We investigate the relevance of Carroll's sticky information model of inflation expectations for four major European economies (France, Germany, Italy and the United Kingdom). In contrast to the most rational expectation models, households in the sticky information environment update their expectations occasionally rather than instantaneously due to the costs of acquiring and processing information. ...

Development of Wage Inequality for Natives and Immigrants in Germany: Evidence from Quantile Regression and Decomposition

To study the development of wage inequality is important for the economic performance as well as for the development of employment. First, I estimate the remuneration to personal characteristics for Germans and immigrants across the wage distribution using quantile regression. My database is the German socio-economic panel for the period 1984-2006. I find a higher inequality between skill groups for ...
