    Obesity and the Labor Market: A Fresh Look at the Weight Penalty

    This paper applies semiparametric regression models to shed light on the relation-ship between body weight and labor market outcomes in Germany. We find conclusive evidence that these relationships are poorly described by linear or quadratic OLS specifications, which have been the main approaches in previous studies. Women's wages and employment probabilities do not follow a linear relationship and ...

    Macht Ungerechtigkeit krank? Gesundheitliche Folgen von Einkommens(un)gerechtigkeit

    Theoretical research on inequity and social justice as well as experimental research indicate that perceived injustice may cause stress and thus may have negative effects on health. Using longitudinal data from the German Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP) of the years 2005 to 2011, this study investigates if perceptions of earnings (un)fairness impact employees’ health. The analyses show that a change in ...

    Erwerbsminderungsrente in Deutschland: ein unterschätztes Risiko(?)

    Der Bezug von Erwerbsminderungsrente ist ein unterschätztes Risiko – es trifft in Deutschland mit mehr als jedem fünften Arbeitnehmer mehr Menschen als man denkt. Die empirischen Befunde, die auf verschiedenen Analyseebenen ansetzen, verdeutlichen: Im sechsten Lebensjahrzehnt ist das Risiko wegen chronischer Erkrankungen den Arbeitsmarkt vorzeitig zu verlassen besonders hoch. Eine Verlängerung der ...

    Obesity and Developmental Functioning Among Children Aged 2-4 Years

    In developed countries, obesity tends to be associated with worse labor market outcomes. One possible reason is that obesity leads to less human capital formation early in life. This paper investigates the association between obesity and the developmental functioning of children at younger ages (2-4 years) than ever previously examined. Data from the German Socio-Economic Panel Study are used to ...

    Parental Income and Child Health in Germany

    We use newly available data from Germany to study the relationship between parental income and child health. We find a strong gradient between parental income and subjective child health as has been documented earlier in the US, Canada and the UK. The relationship in Germany is about as strong in the US and stronger than in theUK. However, in contrast to US results, we do not find that the disadvantages ...

    SOEP as a Source for Research on Ageing: Issues, Measures and Possibilities for Improvement

    Demographic change is a key consequence of the development of modern societies. The prolongation of life expectancy, shifts of mortality into later life and long-term low fertility rates cause essential changes in population structures - with an increase in the number and proportion of older people as a key feature. The changes in mortality patterns can be seen as a success of modern society. But demographic ...

The latest public pension reform in both countries has the same aim: to establish middle- and long-term stability of the system against ...
