    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 ...

    Impacts of Parental Health Shocks on Children's Non-cognitive Skills

    We examine how parental health shocks affect children's non-cognitive skills. Based on a German mother-and-child data base, we draw on significant changes in self-reported parental health as an exogenous source of health variation to identify effects on outcomes for children at ages of three and six years. At the age of six, we observe that maternal health shocks in the previous three years have significant ...

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

    This study investigates the effects of maternal education on child's health and health behavior. We draw on a rich German panel data set containing information about three generations. This allows instrumenting maternal education by the number of her siblings while conditioning on grandparental characteristics. The instrumental variables approach has not yet been used in the intergenerational context ...

    Multidimensional Measurement of Richness: Theory and an Application to Germany

    Closely following recent innovations in the literature on the multidimensional measurement of poverty, this paper provides similar measures for the top of the distribution using a dual cutoff method to identify individuals, who can be considered as rich in a multidimensional setting. We use this framework to analyze the role of wealth, health and education, in addition to income, as dimensions of multidimensional ...

    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 ...

    Mental Illness and Unhappiness

    This paper is a contribution to the second World Happiness Report. It makes five main points. 1. Mental health is the biggest single predictor of life-satisfaction. This is so in the UK, Germany and Australia even if mental health is included with a six-year lag. It explains more of the variance of life-satisfaction in the population of a country than physical health does, and much more than unemployment ...

    A Weighty Issue Revisited: The Dynamic Effect of Body Weight on Earnings and Satisfaction in Germany

    We estimate the relationship between changes in the body mass index (bmi) and wages or satisfaction, respectively, in a panel of German employees. In contrast to previous literature, the dynamic models indicate that there is an inverse u-shaped association between bmi and wages among young workers. Among young male workers, work satisfaction is affected beyond the effect on earnings. Our finding of ...
