Several contributions to the literature have shown that the perception of the individual employment status depends on the surrounding unemployment rate. We argue ...

    Selectivity Processes in and Weights for the Berlin Aging Study II (BASE-II)

    Like many medical studies, the Berlin Aging Study II (BASE·II) is based on a non·random "convenience sample" of self·recruited participants.
