    Inequality-Adjusted Gender Wage Differentials in Germany

    This paper exploits data from the German Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP) to re-examine the gender wage gap in Germany on the basis of inequality-adjusted measures of wage differentials which fully account for gender differences in pay distributions. The inequality-adjusted gender pay gap measures are significantly larger than suggested by standard indicators, especially in East Germany. Women appear penalized ...

    Causal Effects of Educational Mismatch in the Labor Market

    This paper analyzes the effect of educational mismatch on wages in Germany, using data from the German Socio-Economic Panel. Educational mismatch has been discussed extensively, mostly by applying OLS wage regressions which are prone to an unobserved heterogeneity bias. This problem is approached by using FE and IV models. As a stability check, the regressions are rerun using data from the International ...

    Low Occupational Prestige and Internal Migration in Germany

    This paper assesses a recent prediction of the theoretical migration literature, according to which migration may be driven by a desire to avoid social humiliation rising from occupational stigma. To this end, we study the residential mobility of workers in occupations with relatively low prestige using data from the German Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP). In order to capture low occupational prestige, ...

    Ökonometrische Verfahren zur Messung von Segregation: eine theoretische und empirische Studie

    Segregation ist ein viel diskutiertes soziales Thema. Berufliche Segregation liegt. - vor, wenn sich unterschiedliche Gruppen ungleich auf einzelne Berufe oder Berufsgruppen aufteilen. Üben beispielsweise Frauen in größerem Maße schlechter bezahlte Berufe aus als Männer, so kann dies eine Erklärung für die Lohnlücke zwischen weiblichen und männlichen Arbeitnehmern sein. Regionale Einkommenssegregation ...

    Nominal or Real? The Impact of Regional Price Levels on Satisfaction with Life

    We study the effect of real versus nominal income on life satisfaction. According to economic theory real income, i.e., nominal income adjusted for purchasing power, should be the relevant source of life satisfaction. Previous work, however, has only studied the impact of nominal income. We use a novel data set comprising about 7 million data points that are used to construct a price level for each ...

    Dynamics and Drivers of Consumption and Multidimensional Poverty: Evidence from Rural Ethiopia

    This study aims to explore poverty measures, its dynamics and determinants using Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI) and consumption poverty. Our results show that the two measures assign similar poverty status to about 52 percent of households and that both approaches confirm poverty is mainly transient in rural Ethiopia. However, we find that the trend in adjusted head count poverty is different ...

    Post-Socialist Transition and the Intergenerational Transmission of Education in Kyrgyzstan

    We investigate long-term trends in the intergenerational transmission of education in a low income country undergoing a transition from socialism to a market economy. We draw on evidence from Kyrgyzstan using data from three household surveys collected in 1993, 1998 and 2011. We find that Kyrgyzstan, like Eastern European middle income transition economies, generally maintained high educational mobility, ...

    Direct Evidence on Income Comparisons and Subjective Well-Being

    Subjective well-being (SWB) is generally argued to rise with relative income. However, direct evidence is scarce on whether and how intensively individuals undertake income comparisons, to whom they relate, and what they perceive their relative income to be. In this paper, novel data with direct information on income comparison intensity and perceived relative income with respect to predetermined reference ...

    Offshoring and Labor Income Risk: An Empirical Investigation

    This paper analyses how increased offshoring impacts on labor income risk. It is therefore distinct from a large number of studies explaining the level effects of globalization on the labor market in that it takes a look at effects on the variability of incomes. It provides an assessment that directly connects labor income risk and offshoring trends in a panel setting at the industry level. Importantly, ...

    Household Survey Data for Research on Well-Being and Behavior in Central Asia

    This paper summarizes the micro-level survey evidence from Central Asia generated and analyzed between 1991 and 2012. We provide an exhaustive overview over all accessible individual and household-level surveys undertaken in Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan - and of all English-language academic papers published using these datasets. We argue that Central Asia is a fascinating ...
