Tax policy design and behavioural microsimulation modelling by Hielke Buddelmeyer( Book )
6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 131 libraries worldwide
This book is concerned with the ways in which tax policy design can be enhanced by the use of a behavioural tax microsimulation model which is capable of evaluating the effects of planned or actual tax reforms. Tax policy questions may relate to specific problems, concerning perhaps the revenue implications of a particular tax, or they may involve an extensive analysis of the cost and redistributive effects of many taxes and transfer payments. An advantage of a large-scale tax simulation model, which reflects the heterogeneity of the population and captures the detail of the tax structure, is that it can examine detailed practical policy questions and can provide direct inputs into policy debate. The authors discuss the role of means-testing, several hypothetical policy reforms, actual and proposed reforms and recent modelling developments
An evaluation of the performance of regression discontinuity design on progresa by Hielke Buddelmeyer( file )
13 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 54 libraries worldwide
"While providing the most reliable method of evaluating social programs, randomized experiments in industrial and developing countries alike are accompanied by political risks and ethical issues that jeopardize the chances of adopting them. Buddelmeyer and Skoufias use a unique data set from rural Mexico collected for the purpose of evaluating the impact of the PROGRESA poverty alleviation program to examine the performance of a quasi-experimental estimator, the regression discontinuity design (RDD). Using as a benchmark the impact estimates based on the experimental nature of the sample, the authors examine how estimates differ when the RDD is used as the estimator for evaluating program impact on two key indicators--child school attendance and child work. Overall the performance of the RDD was remarkably good. The RDD estimates of program impact agreed with the experimental estimates in 10 out of the 12 possible cases. The two cases in which the RDD failed to reveal any significant program impact on school attendance of boys and girls were in the first year of the program (round 3). RDD estimates comparable to the experimental estimates were obtained when the authors used as a comparison group children from noneligible households in the control localities. This paper--a product of the Poverty and Gender Unit, Latin America and the Caribbean Region--is part of a larger effort in the region to develop and apply rigorous methods in the evaluation of poverty alleviation programs"--World Bank web site

Part-time work in EU countries : labour market mobility, entry and exit by Hielke Buddelmeyer( Book )
9 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 18 libraries worldwide
"This paper looks at the role of part-time work in labour mobility for 11 European countries. We find some evidence of part-time work being used as a stepping stone into full-time employment, but for a small proportion of individuals (less than 5%). Part-time jobs are also found to be more frequently taken up as a means to enter the labour market than to leave it. Multinomial logit regression of the determinants of part-time work reveals household composition, past labour market history and country of residence as very important for both men and women in their decision to work part time. Random effects regression controlling for individual heterogeneity, and the comparison of results for Europe and the US, reveals that a significantly higher proportion of female workers in Europe prefer inactivity and a significantly lower percentage prefer full-time, over part-time employment, than in the US, with considerable variation across EU countries"--Forschungsinstitut zur Zukunft der Arbeit web site
Interrelated dynamics of health and poverty in Australia by Hielke Buddelmeyer( file )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 17 libraries worldwide
Using the Household, Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia (HILDA) Survey, this study examines the joint dynamics of health and poverty in Australian families. Taking advantage of panel data, the modelling approach used in this study allows a better estimation of the causal relationship between health and poverty. The results indicate that the causality between health and poverty runs both ways and the relationship is confounded by unobserved heterogeneity. In particular, it is found that families headed by a person in ill-health are more likely to be in poverty compared with families headed by a person with good health. On the other hand, a family head whose family is in poverty in the current year is more likely to be in ill-health in the next year compared with a family head whose family is not in poverty. In addition, there is evidence that health and poverty are affected by correlated unobservables, causing health to be endogenous to poverty even in the absence of a reverse effect from poverty on health. Consequently, treating health as exogenous in a poverty equation would produce biased estimates. -- Socio-economic status ; poverty ; health ; recursive models ; panel data

The stress cost of children by Hielke Buddelmeyer( Book )
10 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 13 libraries worldwide
"We use longitudinal data describing couples in Australia from 2001-12 and Germany from 2002-12 to examine how demographic events affect perceived time and financial stress. Consistent with the view of measures of stress as proxies for the Lagrangean multipliers in models of household production, we show that births increase time stress, especially among mothers, and that the effects last at least several years. Births generally also raise financial stress slightly. The monetary equivalent of the costs of the extra time stress is very large. While the departure of a child from the home reduces parents' time stress, its negative impacts on the tightness of the time constraints are much smaller than the positive impacts of a birth."--Abstract
Re-employment dynamics of disabled workers by Hielke Buddelmeyer( Book )
7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 13 libraries worldwide
We investigate the duration of time until the first work resumption for a cohort of people who receive disability insurance benefits. One of the peculiarities of the disability insurance program under investigation is that the level of benefits not only depends on previous wages, but also declines over time according to a schedule based on age, the amount of work experience, and the level of disability. As a result, different people will face different benefit schedules and hence are likely to make different choices regarding a return to work. To fully absorb the structural aspect of the disability program, we specify and estimate a behavioral labor supply model where individuals receive job offers that they can accept or decline. Possible reforms of the disability program are evaluated, including ending the disability program altogether

Can having internal locus of control insure against negative shocks? : psychological evidence from panel data by Hielke Buddelmeyer( Book )
3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
"We investigate whether the intensity of emotional pain following a negative shock is different across the distribution of a person's locus of control - the extent to which individuals believe that their actions can influence future outcomes. Using panel data from Australia, we show that individuals with strong internal locus of control are psychologically insured against becoming a victim of property crime and death of a close friend, but not against the majority of other life events. The buffering effects vary across gender. Our findings thus add to the existing literature on the benefits of internal locus of control."--Abstract
Non-standard "contingent" emplyment and job satisfaction : a panel data analysis by Hielke Buddelmeyer( Book )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
It is widely assumed that contingent forms of employment, such as fixed-term contracts, labour-hire and casual employment, are associated with low quality jobs. This hypothesis is tested using data from the Household, Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia (HILDA) Survey, a nationally representative household panel survey covering a country with a high incidence of non-standard employment. Ordered logit regression models of job satisfaction are estimated that hold constant all time-invariant individual differences as well as a range of observed time-varying characteristics
Educating oneself out of social exclusion by Hielke Buddelmeyer( Book )
2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
Increasing education and training is considered one means by which to reduce the extent of social exclusion and as such has been a key focus in recent public policies. This study investigates the impact of education and training on the extent of social exclusion using a measure of multidimensional social exclusion. The study finds a clear dichotomy in the extent of social exclusion experienced between those with low levels of education (early school leavers or those with a certificate II qualification at the most) and the rest. Table of contents: * Executive summary * Introduction * Previous studies * Measuring social exclusion * Data and results (Data. Incidence of components of social exclusion. headcount of social exclusion. Persistence of social exclusion. Adjusting headcount of social exclusion) * Concluding remarks * References * Appendices (Overview of the literature. Additional information. Formal description of the methodology used)

The role of VET in preventing the scarring effect of youth joblessness by Hielke Buddelmeyer( Book )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 5 libraries worldwide
"Youth unemployment, particularly long-term unemployment, is always a concern given the economic and social ramifications that it brings. Using data from the Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth, this report looks at the extent to which a previous spell of unemployment determines current unemployment. If unemployment can be attributed to an earlier period of unemployment, we describe that earlier spell as having a 'scarring effect'. The report also examines the extent to which post-school educational qualifications can reduce the scarring effect of unemployment. Scarring does occur but its effect quickly diminishes over time. Post-school qualifications are found to help reduce this effect."--NCVER website
Understanding the drivers of poverty dynamics in Australian households by Hielke Buddelmeyer( file )
3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Using longitudinal household data and an econometric model of conditional poverty transitions, this paper contributes to the growing literature on poverty dynamics in Australian households. The results reveal that a range of household head, partner and demographic characteristics in addition to life-changing events have an impact on both the likelihood of remaining poor and slipping into poverty. these findings have important implications for Australian policymakers: tertiary education and employment are key factors in keeping households out of poverty; having a disability increases the probability of becoming poor and remaining in such a situation; households in outer-regional or remote areas are more likely to become poor and continue to live under such hardship; and finally, life-changing events, especially becoming separated, can lead households into persistent poverty. These results are robust to a range of poverty definitions. By drawing on research that utilizes such longitudinal data, policymakers will be much better informed about the drivers of material deprivation in Australia and subsequently how best to design policies that target and support the most vulnerable households
