IOS Working Papers No. 385 ist erschienen

Transition welfare gaps: one closed, another to follow?, Maksym Obrizan, 16 S., IOS Working Papers 385, January 2020.

Respondents from post-communist countries have been found to systematically report lower levels of happiness and self-rated health. While the first welfare gap in happiness has closed recently, the second transition gap in self-perceived gap only started to close. Specifically, this paper shows that treating all transition countries as a homogeneous group may be misleading and divides 28 transition countries into three groups. As result, in the most recent 2016 round of ‘Life in Transition’ survey, transition countries in Southern Europe are no longer different from non-transition nations in terms of their self-rated health. Although the gap in self-perceived health for transition nations in Eastern Europe is present in a basic model, it becomes less statistically and economically significant when subjective beliefs and macro-level variables are added. Countries from the former Soviet Union and Mongolia remain the only group in which
respondents report 16.5−29.1% lower probability of ‘Good’ or ‘Very Good’ health compared to other transition and non-transition countries. Controlling for communist party membership, ideological beliefs and macro-level variables somewhat reduces the gap for the former Soviet Union and Mongolia but it remains significant in multiple robustness checks. Although the gap in self-rated health now applies to only one group of transition countries, it remains an important empirical puzzle with far-reaching implications for health policy, demand for health care and the process of transition.

Price and Rent Dispersion in German Housing Markets

Ein Vortrag von Georgi Kocharkov (Goethe-Universität Frankfurt am Main) im Rahmen der Seminarreihe des AB Ökonomie am IOS.
Datum: 28. Januar 2020
Zeit: 13.30 Uhr
Ort: Leibniz-Institut für Ost-und Südosteuropaforschung (IOS), Landshuter Str. 4 (Raum 109)

The paper studies house price and rent dispersion across residential real estate properties and locations in Germany at different aggregation levels. We use data of all residential real estate offers on the ImmobilienScout24 website from January 2007 to March 2019. This is augmented by household socio-economic data on square kilometer grid level. We find that as the average house price/rents rise in the late 2000s, dispersion also goes up. Decomposition results point out that the rise in dispersion is accounted for by the diverging differences between local labor markets. Within, highly urbanized labor markets, differences within cities are important too.
