  • Justice Evaluation of the Income Distribution (JEID): Development and validation of a short scale for the subjective assessment of objective differences in earnings

    Justice evaluations are proposed to provide a link between the objective level of inequality and the consequences at the individual and societal level. Available instruments, however, focus on the subjective perception of inequality and income distributions. In light of findings that subjective perceptions of inequality and income levels can be biased and subject to method effects, we present the newly ...

  • In sole or joint names? The role of employment and marriage biographies for married women’s asset ownership in later life

    The way women hold assets within couples (solely or jointly) is a crucial dimension of their economic situation. This study examines the distribution of women’s assets within married couples and how the interplay of their employment and marriage biographies is related to their asset holdings in later life. Using data from the Socio-Economic Panel Study (SOEP; 2002, 2007, 2012, 2017), the author applies ...

  • Unemployment, Social Networks, and Health Inequalities

    The loss of employment is an event that interferes with the lives of everyone affected, causes stress, and can have a negative impact on their health. Meta-analyses show that unemployed people have a worse state of health and a mortality risk that is at least 1.6 times higher than those who are employed. Unemployment is associated with a lower mental and physical health status and, in some cases, with ...

  • Do narcissistic admiration and rivalry matter for the mental health of romantic partners? Insights from actor-partner interdependence models

    Personality traits of romantic partners may be part of the puzzle of how romantic relationships are related to mental health. We investigated the role of narcissistic admiration and rivalry in this context. Positive associations of admiration and negative associations of rivalry with the mental health of individuals and their partners were hypothesized. Furthermore, we expected admiration to be particularly ...

  • Examining Interindividual Differences in Unemployment-Related Changes of Subjective Well-Being: No Moderation Effects of Psychological Well-Being Across Various Unemployment Contexts

    Individuals differ in how they react to unemployment. Yet, research on sources of interindividual differences in unemployment-related well-being changes is still in its infancy. Using monthly panel data of initially employed German jobseekers, this study examined whether the six trait-like dimensions of psychological well-being (PWB, e.g., autonomy, environmental mastery) buffer the negative effects ...

  • Risk aversion in the public sector workforce: the micro-level drivers of change

    For a long-time, public sector employees have been described as “pathologically” risk averse. Research suggests that a high level of risk aversion in the public sector workforce may lead to undesirable consequences such as hindering reforms and innovations. It is therefore important to understand the factors and mechanisms that could change the level of risk aversion in the public sector. Nevertheless, ...

  • Second job holding in Germany – a persistent feature?

    This paper investigates the persistence and determinants of second job holding in Germany, especially marginal second jobs, following a legislative change allowing extensive dispensation of marginal second jobs from taxes and social security contributions. I document an upward trend in second job holding driven in particular by women. Moreover I find strong evidence for the persistence of second job ...

  • Change in Personal Culture over the Life Course

    Prior literature finds stability in personal culture, such as attitudes and values, in individuals’ life courses using short-running panel data. This work has concluded that lasting change in personal culture is rare after formative early years. This conclusion conflicts with a growing body of evidence for changes in personal culture after significant life course transitions, drawing on long-running ...
