Time: 12:30-13:30

Using a unique administrative dataset on Italians living abroad, we estimate the effect of parental migration on the education, employment and income opportunities of descendants in the host country.

An introduction to respondent-driven sampling (RDS) with case studies

Speaker: Mariel McKone Leonard, DeZIM - German Center for Integration and Migration Research
Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
Time: 12:00-13:15

Declining response rates have made traditional, probability-based sampling methods more resource-intensive and thus more expensive. Studies of population subgroups are particularly vulnerable to this trend, as smaller group sizes as well as other factors often make these groups "hard-to-reach" or "hard-to-survey". In response, researchers have increasingly relied on network ...

Chimpanzee and human risk preferences show key similarities

Speaker: Lou Haux, Max-Planck-Institut für Bildungsforschung (MPIB)
Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
Time: 12:30-13:30

Risk preference impacts how people make key life decisions related to health, wealth, and wellbeing. Yet the evolutionary roots of human risk taking behavior remain poorly understood. I will present two studies on risk preferences in chimpanzees, one of our closest living relatives.In the first study, we investigated whether chimpanzees (N=13) differentiate between social ...

The Effects of Shortening Potential Benefit Duration: Evidence from Regional Cut-offs and a Policy Reform

Speaker: Jonas Jessen
Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
Time: 14:00-15:00

We quantify labour market effects of changes in the potential benefit duration (PBD) in Poland. Individual workers' PBD depends on the county unemployment rate relative to the national average---12 months of PBD above a cut-off of 125 per cent and 6 months below. This cut-off shifted from 125 to 150 per cent in a 2009 reform. We utilize (i) the natural experiment of the reform and (ii) the ...

Belonging or Estrangement – the European Refugee Crisis and its Effects on Immigrant Identity

Speaker: Christopher Prömel, Freie Universität Berlin
Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
Time: 12:30-13:30

This study deals with the impact of the 2015 European Refugee Crisis on the ethnic identity of resident migrants in Germany. To derive plausibly causal estimates, I exploit the quasi-experimental setting in Germany, by which refugees are allocated to different counties by state authorities without being able to choose their locations themselves. This study finds that higher ...

Women's managerial representation and the gender pay gap

Speaker: Virginia Sondergeld
Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
Time: 12:30 - 13:30

This paper analyzes the impact of women's managerial representation on the gender pay gap among subordinates on the establishment level using German Linked-Employer-Employee-Data. For identification of a causal effect we employ two estimation strategies: 1) a panel model with establishment fixed effects and 2) an event study estimation around a discrete shift in managerial representation. We find ...

Mask wearing, pro-social behavior and wellbeing

Speaker: Alan Piper, Paris School of Economics and Freie Universität Berlin
Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
Time: 12:30-13:30

Using COME-HERE longitudinal data from 2021, this investigation links mask wearing, prosocial behaviour, and well-being. Given that mask wearing has positive externality properties, wearing one can be seen as pro-social behaviour. Individuals are categorised into three groups based on a comparison between their own mask wearing frequency and what is required by law. Those ...

Increasing employment and family care? A structural analysis of pension and long-term care policy reforms

Speaker: Björn Fischer
Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
Time: 12:30 - 13:30

We develop a comprehensive life-cycle model of elder parent care and work to evaluate options that address pressing conflicts between pension and long-term care (LTC) policies. Many OECD countries react to challenges of demographic change by increasing LTC by family members (informal care) and raising retirement ages. This intensifies conflicts between paid employment and informal care provision. ...

The dynamics of informal and formal care supply to parents - a structural model

Speaker: Björn Fischer
Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
Time: 12:30 - 13:30

In this paper, we estimate a structural dynamic discrete choice model of informal as well as formal care provision, retirement and labor supply. The model allows to assess the dynamic consequences of providing informal care or organizing formal care for parents, e.g., due to reduced wages, pension benefits, or benefits from long-term care insurance. Further, it allows to analyze counterfactual ...

Social Mobility and Economic Development

Speaker: Guido Neidhöfer, ZEW
Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
Time: 13:15 - 14:30

We explore the role of social mobility as driver of economic development. First, we draw the geography of intergenerational mobility of education for 52 Latin American regions, as well as its evolution over time. Then, through a novel weighting procedure that considers the aggregate participation of cohorts to the economy in every year, we estimate the effect of changes in mobility on economic ...

Intergenerational Effects of Grandparental Care on Children and Parents

Speaker: Elena Ziege
Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
Time: 12:30 - 13:30

Grandparents act as the third biggest care giver besides day care and parental care for children below the age of 6 in most OECD countries. Despite its relevance, the effects of child care provided by grandparents on child and parental outcomes have received little attention in the literature. We investigate the potential impact of grandparental care on children's ...

Women on the Move – Current Perspectives on Female Migration

Today, half of the world’s migrants are female, amounting to 114 million individuals in 2017. The intersection between migration and gender has profound consequences for individuals: gender affects, amongst others migration motifs, selection into migration, as well as decisions on destination countries. Further, the experiences in the host country are gender-specific and especially so when ...

The effects of personality on the native-migrant labour market gap

Speaker: Marli Guimarães Fernandes, Nova School of Business and Economics
Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
Time: 15:00 - 16:00

This article quantifies differences in personality skills (Big Five Factor, locus of control, reciprocity, life goals and risk) and their assimilation rate between first-generation immigrants and native Germans, using the SOEP survey. The results reveal that the two groups differentiate in their personality traits but immigrants do not tend to assimilate natives during ...
