The effects of health shocks on family status: do financial incentives encourage marriage?

This paper asks whether marriage decisions of unmarried mature couples are driven by the prospect of financial advantages for the later widowed after one partner has suffered a serious health shock. We hypothesize that, in contrast to traditional marriage models, such health shocks may induce unmarried couples to obtain economic benefits, such as survivors’ pensions in particular, through marriage ...

One year after exposure to the mandate, we observe positive treatment effects ...

Using Deep Learning To Uncover The Relation Between Age and Life Satisfaction

This study applies a machine learning (ML) approach to around half a million observations from the German Socio-Economic Panel to assess the relation between life satisfaction and age.

Center-Based Care and Parenting Activities

We estimate effects of center-based care on parenting activities using time use data for Germany. Our estimates imply that center-based care reduces the overall time that parents spend with the enrolled child, but has only small negative effects on time spent doing activities together. Correspondingly, center-based care increases activities as a share of the time spent together with the child. The ...

Well-being Changes from Year to Year: A Comparison of Current, Remembered and Predicted Life Satisfaction

I study yearly changes in personal well-being combining data on current, retrospective and prospective life satisfaction from the German Socio-Economic Panel. Predicted and remembered changes in life satisfaction are both positive on average and match well, whereas the average year to year-change inferred from reports of current life satisfaction is negative. Retrospective assessments of past well-being ...

The legacy of state socialism on attitudes toward immigration

Does the politico–economic system affect preferences for immigration? In this study, I show that individuals exposed to life under state socialism have formed and persistently hold different attitudes toward immigration. By exploiting the division and reunification of Germany, I estimate the influence of state socialism on attitudes toward immigration. Drawing on rich individual panel data, I find ...

Mehrheit der Geflüchteten hat höhere Bildung im Vergleich zur Herkunftsgesellschaft

Die Bildungsabschlüsse von MigrantInnen werden typischerweise anhand der im Zielland geltenden Standards eingeordnet. Weniger Beachtung findet dagegen die Stellung, die diese Qualifikationen im jeweiligen Herkunftsland haben. In diesem Beitrag wird die mitgebrachte Bildung verschiedener Gruppen von Zugewanderten mit den Bildungsverteilungen des jeweiligen Herkunftslands und mit der Bildungsverteilung ...
