  • The Decentralization of Social Assistance and the Rise of Disability
           Insurance Enrolment
    • Authors: Gijs Roelofs; Daniel van Vuuren
      Pages: 1 - 21
      Abstract: Fiscal decentralization, the decentralization of government expenditures to local governments, may enhance public sector efficiency. Vertical externalities, i.e. spillovers between local and central government, could however undo part of this advantage. In this paper we estimate spillovers from Social Assistance (SA), administered by municipalities, towards central government’s Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) scheme in The Netherlands. The latter scheme saw rapidly rising enrolment rates after financial responsibility for Social Assistance was transferred from central to local government. We find that the correlation between local SSDI enrolment and the local stock of SA benefits recipients has increased significantly in the years after decentralization. We show that an increased caseload shifting from Social Assistance to Disability Insurance is the only plausible explanation for this change. Our analysis shows that, following the decentralization of Social Assistance, at least one third of the SSDI inflow was diverted from SA. This caseload shifting increased more rapidly in municipalities experiencing deficits on their SA budgets than in municipalities running a surplus.

  • Do Incentives for Municipalities Reduce the Welfare Caseload? Evaluation
           of a Welfare Reform in the Netherlands
    • Authors: Lucy Kok; Caren Tempelman; Pierre Koning; Lennart Kroon; Caroline Berden
      Pages: 23 - 42
      Abstract: Since 2004, most municipalities in the Netherlands receive lump sum payments from the state for the payment of social assistance allowances. As municipalities had no authority to change the eligibility rules for social assistance, the effects of the welfare reform are solely due to the efforts of municipalities to decrease the number of welfare recipients. Using variation in the timing of policy changes, this paper uses a difference-in-difference approach to assess the effectiveness of the incentive for municipalities. Based on individual panel data from administrative records, we show that the high-powered scheme led to a decline of the welfare caseload of 14% up till 2008. The reform has been most effective for those with the highest welfare dependency: single mothers and singles from non-western origin. In line with standard economic predictions, the reform does not give an incentive for cream skimming: the welfare caseload declined as well for easy to place recipients as for difficult to place recipients.

  • Who Moves Out of Social Housing? The Effect of Rent Control on Housing
           Tenure Choice
    • Authors: Mark A. C. Kattenberg; Wolter H. J. Hassink
      Pages: 43 - 66
      Abstract: Rent control provides substantial in-kind benefits to tenants of social housing. In the Netherlands these benefits equal almost 40% of the market rent on average. We show that rent control benefits for the 10% tenants with highest income are 5% points higher than the benefits for the 10% with lowest incomes. Next we provide evidence that rent control influences the housing tenure choice decision. We find that on average rent control reduces transitions within the social housing sector, but not transitions from the social housing sector. Only the 20% tenants with highest incomes postpone moves out of social housing in response to rent control. This suggests that the inequitable distribution of rent control benefits is prolonged by the reduction in transition rates out of social housing. It also suggests that recent policy in the Netherlands that reduces rent control benefits for high income households can increase the mobility of those affected.

  • Gender Differentials in Unemployment Ins and Outs during the Great
           Recession in Spain
    • Authors: Sara De la Rica; Yolanda F. Rebollo-Sanz
      Pages: 67 - 99
      Abstract: The Great Recession had led to gender convergence in unemployment rates. In this paper we seek its sources to assess whether this convergence will remain once the Great Recession ends. We use Social Security records to study the determinants of unemployment ins and outs for men and women separately, over the course of a whole business cycle, i.e. 2000–2013. We focus on Spain—a country hit hard by unemployment increases in downturns. We find that unemployment outs are crucial in understanding changes in unemployment rates in Spain as well as to understand the gender convergence in unemployment rates. Among the determinants of the large drop in unemployment outs, lack of demand and negative state dependence emerge as key sources, which affect men more negatively than women. In a scenario of upcoming recovery, unemployment outs will increase for short-term unemployed, particularly for males. On the contrary, both male and female long-term unemployed workers will face enormous difficulties to access a job, as the job access rates for long-term unemployed is not sensitive to the economic cycle. Hence, we expect that the gender convergence in unemployment rates will persist only when considering the long-term unemployed.

  • Sorting Around the Discontinuity Threshold: The Case of a Neighbourhood
           Investment Programme
    • Authors: Sander Gerritsen; Dinand Webbink; Bas ter Weel
      Pages: 101 - 128
      Abstract: This paper investigates the empirical validity of the setup of a large-scale government neighbourhood investment programme in the Netherlands. Selection of neighbourhoods into the programme was determined by a measure of neighbourhood quality. At first sight this is a textbook example for the application of a regression discontinuity design to estimate the causal effect of the programme on neighbourhood outcomes. Neighbourhoods close to the threshold should be similar before the programme starts. However, at the discontinuity threshold we observe a surprisingly large gap in the share of non-Western immigrants between neighbourhoods that were selected into the programme and neighbourhoods that were not. In addition, there is non-compliance with the assignment rule based on the quality index. The pattern of non-compliance is consistent with investing in neighbourhoods with a high share of non-Western immigrants. Finally, the way in which neighbourhoods were defined could be a likely explanation for the imbalance in the share of non-Western immigrants at the discontinuity threshold.

  • Early Smoking, Education, and Labor Market Performance
    • Authors: Ali Palali
      Abstract: This study investigates the effects of early smoking on educational attainment and labor market performance by using mixed ordered and mixed proportional hazard models. The results show that early smoking adversely affects educational attainment and initial labor market performance, but only for males. The probability to finish a scientific degree is 4%-point lower for an early smoker. The effect of early smoking on initial labor market performance is indirect through educational attainment. Once the indirect effect is controlled for there is no direct effect. Moreover, for males only, early smoking has a negative effect on current labor market performance even after conditioning on educational attainment. The probability to have an academic job is 4%-point lower for an early smoker. For females neither education nor labor market performance is affected by early smoking.

  • Teacher Literacy and Numeracy Skills: International Evidence from PIAAC
           and ALL
    • Authors: Bart H. H. Golsteyn; Stan Vermeulen; Inge de Wolf
      Pages: 365 - 389
      Abstract: Using the OECD-studies PIAAC and ALL, this paper shows that teachers on average have better literacy and numeracy skills than other respondents in almost all of the 15 countries in the samples. In most countries, teachers outperform others in the bottom percentiles, while in some countries they perform better than others throughout the skill distribution. These results imply that the scope to improve teachers’ skills varies between countries and that policy makers should take the shape of the skills distribution into account when designing interventions in order to most efficiently raise teachers’ skills.

  • Does the Teacher Beat the Test? The Value of the Teacher’s Assessment in
           Predicting Student Ability
    • Authors: Eva Feron; Trudie Schils; Bas ter Weel
      Pages: 391 - 418
      Abstract: This research investigates to what extent the subjective teacher’s assessment of children’s ability predicts children’s outcomes in the transition from primary to secondary school in terms of initial track allocation, track switching in the first three years of secondary education and subsequent test scores. We apply micro-data from the Netherlands about cognitive test scores and teacher’s assessment in primary schools and about track placement, track switching and test scores in secondary schools. Our estimates suggest that the subjective teacher’s assessment is about twice as important as the primary school cognitive test scores for initial track placement in secondary school. In addition, the teacher’s assessment is more predictive of track allocation in 9th grade compared to cognitive test scores. Next, children who switch tracks are more likely to be placed in tracks based on test scores. Also, test scores in 9th grade are predicted by the subjective teacher’s assessment, not by test scores in 6th grade.

  • Teacher Evaluations and Pupil Achievement Gains: Evidence from Classroom
    • Authors: Marc van der Steeg; Sander Gerritsen
      Pages: 419 - 443
      Abstract: This chapter investigates the relationship between teacher evaluations and pupil performance gains in primary education. Teacher evaluations have been conducted by trained external evaluators who scored teachers on a detailed rubric containing 75 classroom practices. These practices reflect pedagogical, didactical and classroom organization competences considered crucial for effective teaching. Conditional on previous year test scores and several pupil and classroom characteristics the score on this rubric significantly predicts pupil performance gains on standardized tests in math, reading and spelling. Estimated test score gains are in the order of 0.4 standard deviations in math and spelling and 0.25 standard deviations in reading if a pupil is assigned a teacher from the top quartile instead of the bottom quartile of the distribution of the evaluation rubric. The observation rubric particularly seems to have potential to identify weak teachers. These observations may stimulate targeted teacher improvement plans and personnel decisions.

  • The Impact of a Comprehensive School Reform Policy for Weak Schools on
           Educational Achievement; Results of the First 4 years
    • Authors: Roel van Elk; Suzanne Kok
      Pages: 445 - 476
      Abstract: This paper estimates the effects of a comprehensive school reform program on high-stakes test scores in Amsterdam. The program implements a systematic and performance-based way of working within weakly performing primary schools and integrates measures such as staff coaching, teacher evaluations and teacher schooling, and the use of new instruction methods. Difference-in-differences estimates show substantial negative effects on test scores for pupils in their final year of primary school. The program decreased test scores with 0.17 standard deviations in the first 4 years after its introduction. A potential explanation for this finding is the intensive and rigorous approach that caused an unstable work climate with increased teacher replacement.

  • Mincer Earnings Functions for the Netherlands 1962–2012
    • Authors: Joop Hartog; Sander Gerritsen
      Pages: 235 - 253
      Abstract: We extract estimation results on the Mincer earnings function from four earlier studies and add new results from a recent dataset. We check for differences related to differences in earnings concepts and in sampling frame, to reduce bias in intertemporal comparison. Jointly, the studies show a clear U-shaped development in the rate of return to education from 1962 to 2012, with a bottom in the 1980s. We explain this from Tinbergens’s race between suppy and demand (schooling and technology) and suggest this may be a widespread international pattern. Returns to potential experience show no marked time trend. The paper has been presented at the CPB-OCW Workshop “Returns to education: research and policy”, The Hague, December 17 2015. We are grateful to Bas ter Weel and Harry Patrinos for comments on an earlier version and to Wiljan van den Berge and Dinand Webbink for providing us with their data. We also thank two anonymous referees for useful suggestions.

      Abstract: This study examines the sensitivity of the expected retirement age to standard retirement ages in pension overviews (age anchors) via a survey. The results show that individuals expect to retire later when they are confronted with a higher age anchor. The effect of the age anchor on the expected retirement age is driven by women. At the same time, the null hypothesis that the age anchors do not have an effect on the expected retirement age of males cannot be rejected. Interestingly, different socioeconomic subgroups of women are all sensitive to age anchors. A salient age anchor (coinciding with a current or future statutory retirement age) appears to elicit a stronger effect on the expected retirement age than non-salient age anchors.

  • Click‘n’Roll: No Evidence of Illusion of Control
    • Authors: Antonio Filippin; Paolo Crosetto
      Pages: 281 - 295
      Abstract: Evidence of illusion of control—the fact that people believe to have control over pure chance events—is a recurrent finding in experimental psychology. Results in economics find instead little to no support. In this paper we test whether this dissonant result across disciplines is due to the fact that economists have implemented only one form of illusory control. We identify and separately tests in an incentive-compatible design two types of control: (a) over the resolution of uncertainty, as usually done in the economics literature, and (b) over the choice of the lottery, as sometimes done in the psychology literature but without monetary payoffs. Results show no evidence of illusion of control, neither on choices nor on beliefs about the likelihood of winning.

  • Human Capital Accumulation and the Macroeconomy in an Ageing Society
    • Authors: Ben J. Heijdra; Laurie S. M. Reijnders
      Pages: 297 - 334
      Abstract: How do population ageing shocks affect the long-run macroeconomic performance of an economy? To answer this question we build a general equilibrium overlapping generations model of a closed economy featuring endogenous factor prices. Finitely-lived individuals are endowed with perfect foresight and make optimal choices over the life cycle. In addition to selecting age profiles for consumption and the hours of time supplied to the labour market, they also choose their schooling level and retirement age. Human capital is accumulated as a result of work experience, the extent of which is determined by the intensity of labour supply. As the agent gets older, biological deterioration sets in and human capital depreciates at an increasing rate. This ultimately prompts the agent to withdraw from the labour market. The microeconomic and macroeconomic effects of three ageing shocks are studied, namely an increase in the length of biological life (biological longevity boost), an increase in both biological and productive life span (comprehensive longevity boost), and a decrease in the net birth rate (baby bust). Robustness checks are performed by allowing for capital market imperfections and indivisibility of labour supply.

  • Effectiveness of In-Season Manager Changes in English Premier League
    • Authors: Lucas M. Besters; Jan C. van Ours; Martin A. van Tuijl
      Pages: 335 - 356
      Abstract: We analyze the performance effects of in-season manager changes in English Premier League football during the seasons 2000/2001–2014/2015. We find that some managerial changes are successful, while others are counterproductive. On average, performance does not improve following a managerial replacement. The successfulness of managerial turnover depends on specific highly unpredictable circumstances, as we illustrate through case-studies.

  • Knowledge Migration: A Cross-National Analysis
    • Authors: Luigi Aldieri; Concetto Paolo Vinci
      Pages: 109 - 123
      Abstract: This study contributes to existing literature on the innovative activity of firms, examining how migration can be a channel for knowledge spillover. Indeed, the aim of the paper is to introduce a new variable, which is computed on the basis of the distribution of inventors across countries, according to patent data. The paper consists of a theoretical model and an empirical analysis, which is a cross-national analysis of the United States, Japan and Europe, based upon a new dataset of worldwide R&D-intensive manufacturing firms. We use data from all EU R&D investment scoreboard editions, which were issued every year from 2002 to 2010 by the JRC-IPTS. The empirical results suggest that the migration of inventors might enhance local innovation levels, by confirming the theoretical analysis propositions.

  • Native-Immigrant Gaps in Educational and School-to-Work Transitions in the
           2nd Generation: The Role of Gender and Ethnicity
    • Authors: Stijn Baert; Frank W. Heiland; Sanders Korenman
      Pages: 159 - 186
      Abstract: We study how native-immigrant gaps in educational trajectories and school-to-work transitions vary by gender. Using longitudinal Belgian data and adjusting for family background and educational sorting, we find that second-generation immigrants, especially Turks and Moroccans, lag behind natives. In particular, we observe that immigrant students are less likely to finish secondary education or begin tertiary education on time. They are also less likely to transition into work successfully. These performance gaps are substantially larger for female immigrants. In addition, we study demographic behaviors to test the hypothesis that attributes the gender differences in educational and economic ethnic gaps to cultural differences between immigrants and natives.

  • Present-Biased Preferences and Money Demand
    • Authors: Emanuele Millemaci; Robert J. Waldmann
      Pages: 187 - 207
      Abstract: Participants in the De Nederlandsche Bank Household Survey were asked questions allowing to elicit subjective discount factors over different time horizons. The answers of most participants indicate present-bias as they show a higher annualized nominal rate of return for a 3-month delay than for a 12-month delay. One way to deal with one’s present-bias problem is to impose limits on future spending by holding wealth in non-liquid assets. We therefore predict that agents with more severe present-bias problems hold a lower share of their wealth as money. Our data provide statistically significant evidence in support of this prediction.

  • The Ability to Pay for Long-Term Care in the Netherlands: A Life-cycle
    • Authors: Arjen Hussem; Casper van Ewijk; Harry ter Rele; Albert Wong
      Pages: 209 - 234
      Abstract: This paper uses synthetic life-cycle paths at the individual level to analyze the distribution of long-term care expenditures in the Netherlands. Using a comprehensive set of administrative data 20,000 synthetic life-cycle paths of household income and long-term care costs are constructed using the nearest neighbor resampling method. We show that the distribution of these costs is less skewed when measured over the life-cycle than on a cross-sectional basis. This may provide an argument for self-insurance by smoothing these costs over the life-cycle. Yet costs are concentrated at older ages, which limits the scope for self-insurance. Furthermore, the paper investigates the relation between long-term care expenditures, household composition, and income over the life-cycle. The expenditures on a lifetime basis from the age of 65 are higher for low income households, and (single) women.
