    Is Smoking Behavior Culturally Determined? Evidence from British Immigrants

    We exploit migration patterns from the UK to Australia, South Africa, and the US to investigate whether a person's decision to smoke is determined by culture. For each country, we use retrospective data to describe individual smoking trajectories over the life-course. For the UK, we use these trajectories to measure culture by cohort and cohort-age, and more accurately relative to the extant literature. ...

    Pflegemarkt: drohendem Arbeitskräftemangel kann entgegengewirkt werden

    Die demographisch bedingte Zunahme alter und sehr alter Personen, verbunden mit der deutlichen Verringerung der Personen im erwerbsfähigen Alter, stellt für den Bereich der Pflege eine große Herausforderung dar. Ein Großteil der Pflegebedürftigen wird zwar heute durch Familienangehörige zu Hause betreut, die jedoch bei dieser häufig körperlich schweren und psychisch belastenden Tätigkeit in zunehmendem ...

    The Course of Subjective Sleep Quality in Middle and Old Adulthood and Its Relation to Physical Health

    Objective: Older adults more often complain about sleep disturbances compared to younger adults. However, it is not clear whether there is still a decline of sleep qualityafter age 60 and whether changes in sleep quality in old age are mere reflections of impaired physical health or whether they represent a normative age dependent development. Method: Subjective sleep quality and perceived physical ...

    Forecasting Life Satisfaction across Adulthood: Benefits of Seeing a Dark Future?

    Anticipating one's future self is a unique human capacity that contributes importantly to adaptation and health throughoutadulthood and old age. Using the adult lifespan sample of the national German Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP; N > 10,000, age range 18-96 years), we investigated age-differential stability, correlates, and outcomes of accuracy in anticipation of future life satisfaction across six subsequent ...

    A New Approach for Assessing Sleep Duration and Postures from Ambulatory Accelerometry

    Interest in the effects of sleeping behavior on health and performance is continuously increasing - both in research and with the general public. Ecologically valid investigations of this research topic necessitate the measurement of sleep within people's natural living contexts. We present evidence that a new approach for ambulatory accelerometry data offers a convenient, reliable, and valid measurement ...

    Unemployment and Smoking: Causation, Selection, or Common Cause? Evidence from Longitudinal Data

    Background: This study investigates possible mechanisms that can explain the association between unemployment and smoking, that is a) unemployment increases smoking probability (causation), b) smoking increases the probability to become unemployed (selection), and c) differences in both smoking and unemployment probabilities trace back to differences in socio-economic position (common cause). Methods: ...

    Trade Union Membership and Sickness Absence: Evidence from a Sick Pay Reform

    In 1996, statutory sick pay was reduced for private sector workers in Germany. Using the empirical observation that trade union members are dismissed less often than non-members, we construct a model to predict how absence behaviour will respond to the sick pay reform. We show that union members may have stronger incentives to be absent and to react to the cut in sick pay. In the empirical investigation, ...
