Unemployment as a social norm in Germany

Andrew Clark, Andreas Knabe, Steffen Rätzel

Published: 2008

eBook Abstract

This paper investigates the relationship between the subjective well-being of both the employed and unemployed and regional unemployment rates. While employed men suffer from regional unemployment, unemployed men are significantly less negatively affected. This is consistent with a social-norm effect of unemployment in Germany. We find no evidence of such an offsetting effect for women.

Topics : social norms, unemployment, life satisfaction.
