    Description: In many household surveys questions are posed to one of the members of the household, assuming that he represents the household. For observed behavior this is mostly permissible; however, for attitudes and opinions, the representativeness is dubious. In this note we report our finding that for subjective questions of the Leyden-type both adult partners appear to answer almost identically. PsycINFO classification: 2229; 2950; 3920

    Description: We assess the monetary value of the noise damage, caused by aircraft noise nuisance around Amsterdam Airport, as the sum of hedonic house price differentials and a residual cost component. The residual costs are assessed from a survey, including an ordinal life satisfaction scale, on which individual respondents have scored. The derived compensation scheme depends on, among other things, the objective noise level, income, the degree to which prices account for noise differences, and the presence of noise insulation.

    Description: This article presents the results of an experiment that completely measures the utility function and probability weighting function for different positive and negative monetary outcomes, using a representative sample of N = 1,935 from the general public. The results confirm earlier findings in the lab, suggesting that utility is less pronounced than what is found in classical measurements where expected utility is assumed. Utility for losses is found to be convex, consistent with diminishing sensitivity, and the obtained loss-aversion coefficient of 1.6 is moderate but in agreement with contemporary evidence. The estimated probability weighting functions have an inverse-S shape and they imply pessimism in both domains. These results show that probability weighting is also an important phenomenon in the general population. Women and lower educated individuals are found to be more risk averse, in agreement with common findings. In contrast to previous studies that ascribed gender differences in risk attitudes solely to differences in the degree utility curvature, however, our results show that this finding is primarily driven by loss aversion and, for women, also by a more pessimistic psychological response toward the probability of obtaining the best possible outcome.

    Description: Pensions may be provided for in a modern society by a mix of several methods, namely by voluntary individual savings, mandatory fully-funded occupational pension systems, mandatory social security financed by pay-as-you-go, and old-fashioned hoarding in cash. We call a specific mixture of the four systems a pension composition. We assume that individual workers decide on their own individual savings, that the fully-funded occupational system is decided upon by the age cohort of the median worker (MW), and that social security is decided upon by the median voter (MV). We assume that individual and collective pension savings are the only sources of capital supply. When capital supply equals demand from industry there is equilibrium in the capital market with a corresponding equilibrium interest rate and pension composition. In this paper we assume a demography with one hundred age brackets and we investigate how changes in the birth rates, survival rates, and the retirement age affect the pension composition and the capital market equilibrium. Our conclusion is that for a given technology the pension composition and the interest rate are determined by the demography and cannot be modified at will as a long-term political instrument.

    Description: Alphabetical name ordering on multi-authored academic papers, which is the convention in economics and various other disciplines, is to the advantage of people whose last name initials are placed early in the alphabet. Professor A, who has been a first author more often than Professor Z, will have published more articles and experienced a faster productivity rate over the course of her career as a result of reputation and visibility. Authors know that name ordering matters and take ordering seriously. Several characteristics of an author-group composition determine the decision to deviate from the default alphabetical name order to a significant extent.

    Description: This paper presents results from a survey in which employers in the Netherlands reveal the way they select applicants. The survey uses descriptions of fictitious lower skilled job-seekers who do not have a job; the data are analyzed by means of logit models. The results show a strong preference for young, healthy, native (Dutch) men. Employers hardly care about qualities as education and experience, or even about the wage rate. Questions are raised about the cost-efficiency of the observed preferences.

    Description: This book deals with satisfaction analysis, the way humans evaluate many aspects of their situation. It focuses on that which precedes decision taking, i.e., judgements and evaluations, likes and dislikes, and from which preference orderings originate. Although written by two economists, the book is intended for social scientists with the aim of promoting discussion between the two disciplines. It presents methodology by which satisfaction can be analysed along the lines similar to those used by econometricians to analyse ‘objective’ variables.

    Description: The suggestion to tax people on earnings capacity instead of earnings has been around for a long time and is attractive in terms of economic efficiency. In this paper we reflect on the feasibility of such a system and give an exploratory empirical implementation. We apply the Leyden Welfare Function of Income, a survey based measure of an individual's welfare associated with income, to derive implications for ability taxation. Under the assumption that IQ and schooling reflect earnings capacity, we derive the tax functions using different criteria to distribute the utility loss due to taxation.

    Description: This paper proposes a method to evaluate health losses or gains by looking at the impact on well-being of a change in health status. The paper presents estimates of the equivalent income change that would be necessary to change general satisfaction with life to the same extent as a change in health satisfaction would do. In other words, the income equivalent of health satisfaction changes is estimated. Next, this health satisfaction changes are linked to specific diseases in order to estimate the income equivalent for these diseases. This method uses answers to well-being and health satisfaction questions as posed in a large German data set, distinguishing between workers and non-workers and between East and West Germans. It is found, for instance, that for West-German workers hearing impediments are on average equivalent to an income reduction of about 20%, and that heart or blood difficulties are for the same group equivalent to a 47% income reduction.
