Work package 11: Household and family structures as context for employment histories

Work package 11, “Household and family structures as context for employment histories” (Division Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP) of the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW Berlin)), updates basic key figures of household- and family structures as well as household employment patterns (“earner models”) using data from the SOEP and the Microcensus. As in soeb 2, social networks are taken into consideration.

The work package 11 provides syntax elements and descriptive metadata for the development of harmonised household variables across several work packages within the soeb 3 network. The main analysis of the work package focuses on the compensating role of household resources for individuals in precarious employment or unstable employment patterns over the course of life. By using individual employment trajectories over six to ten years in the SOEP data along with sequence analysis tools, the study identifies precarious employment sequence patterns while simultaneously taking household context into account. Control variables include contextual information, e.g. social networks, local labour market indicators, and spatial distribution of employment at the county level.
