    Multidimensional Well-Being at the Top: Evidence for Germany

    This paper employs a multidimensional approach for the measurement of well-being at the top of the distribution using German SOEP micro data. Besides income as traditional indicator for material well-being, we include health as a proxy for nonmaterial quality of life as well as self-reported satisfaction with life as dimensions. We find that one third of the German population is well-off in at least ...

    So Far so Good: Age, Happiness, and Relative Income

    In a simple 2-period model of relative income under uncertainty, higher comparison income for the younger cohort can signal higher or lower expected lifetime relative income, and hence either increase or decrease well-being. With data from the German Socio-Economic Panel and the British Household Panel Survey, we first confirm the standard negative effects of comparison income on life satisfaction ...

    Spillover Effects of Maternal Education on Child's Health and Schooling

    This is the first study investigating the causal effect of maternal education on child's health and schooling outcomes in Germany. We apply an instrumental variables approach that has not yet been used in the intergenerational context. For that purpose, we draw on a rich German panel data set (SOEP) containing information about three generations. This allows instrumenting maternal education by the ...

    Broke, Ill, and Obese: The Effect of Household Debt on Health

    We analyze the effect of household indebtedness on different health outcomes using data from the German Socio-Economic Panel from 1999-2009. To establish a causal effect, we rely on (a) fixed-effects methods, (b) a subsample of constantly employed individuals, and (c) lagged debt variables to rule out problems of reverse causality. We apply different measures of household indebtedness, such as the ...

Our analysis is based on data from the German Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP) study, which enables us to measure child health based on the occurrence of severe health problems including mental and physical disabilities, hospitalizations, and preterm ...

    Erwerbsminderung als Armutsrisiko

    Schwere Erkrankungen stellen ein wesentliches Risiko für Einkommen und Vermögensbildung der Haushalte in Deutschland dar. Das Risiko krankheits-bedingter Erwerbsunfähigkeit soll zwar langfristig durch die Erwerbs-minderungsrente (EM-Rente) abgesichert werden. Die durchschnittlichen Nettozahlbeträge sind allerdings im Zeitraum zwischen 2000 und 2012 von 706 EUR auf gerade einmal 607 EUR gefallen. Dies ...

    Health-Related Life Cycle Risks and Public Insurance

    This paper proposes a dynamic life cycle model of health risks, employment, early retirement, and wealth accumulation in order to analyze the health-related risks of consumption and old age poverty. In particular, the model includes a health process, the interaction between health and employment risks, and an explicit modeling of the German public insurance schemes. I rely on a dynamic programming ...
