    The Hidden Homeownership Welfare State: An International Long-term Perspective on the Tax Treatment of Homeowners

    Welfare is traditionally understood as social security decommodifying labour markets or as social investment policies. In the domain of housing, however, welfare for homeowners is largely hidden in the tax codes’ fiscal exemptions. Based on a content analysis of legislation, this article introduces a novel yearly database of 37 countries between 1901 and 2020 to uncover the “hidden welfare state” of ...

    A Concept for Measuring Real Estate Sustainability from the Investors’ Perspective

    Obwohl die Nachfrage nach nachhaltigen Anlageprodukten steigt und die Regulierung zur Offenlegung von Nachhaltigkeitsaspekten zunimmt, mangelt es auf Seiten der Anleger:innen an Informationen über die Nachhaltigkeit der angebotenen Anlageprodukte.

    Rent Control Reduces Economic Inequality at a Price

    Over the course of the 20th century, governments have frequently used rent control to keep rents affordable, especially in times of crisis when housing is scarce. Existing research shows that rent control has undesirable side effects, such as overall societal welfare losses, market misallocation, a declining housing supply, and lower mobility. However, there has been little research examining the effect ...

    Nonparametric Regression with Selectively Missing Covariates

    We consider the problem of regression with selectively observed covariates in a nonparametric framework. Our approach relies on instrumental variables that explain variation in the latent covariates but have no direct effect on selection. The regression function of interest is shown to be a weighted version of observed conditional expectation where the weighting function is a fraction of selection ...

    Measuring Housing Costs and Housing Affordability Using SOEP: An Example Applied to Older Households

    This paper explores the methodological issues to take into account when using SOEP as a database for calculating a measure of housing costs and housing affordability. For this purpose, we focus on the evolution of housing costs for households headed by elderly people between 1998 and 2018. Our review yields two clear conclusions: (1) that SOEP represents a valuable source of data for calculating household ...

    Living Conditions and the Mental Health and Well-being of Refugees: Evidence from a Large-Scale German Survey

    Refugees are at an increased risk of mental health problems and low subjective well-being. Living circumstances in the host country are thought to play a vital role in shaping these health outcomes, which, in turn, are prerequisites for successful integration. Using data from a representative survey of 4325 adult refugees who arrived in Germany between 2013 and 2016, we investigated how different living ...
