TVSEP webinar: Situation, expectations and impact of the COVID-19 pandemic – Implications for TVSEP
On 19th May 2020, the TVSEP Project Management Team held a joint webinar with TVSEP representatives from Thailand and Vietnam and TVSEP data users. Around 40 researchers from various backgrounds participated in the webinar.
The aim of the webinar was to bring together TVSEP partners and data users to discuss how the COVID-19 pandemic can be best captured in future TVSEP panel waves or special Add-on projects. The unique, long-term panel database of TVSEP is particularly suited to measure the impact of this exceptional crisis. TVSEP has the capacity to collecting and providing valuable information to researchers and policy makers to analyze and monitor the short- and long-term consequences of the crisis.
TVSEP representatives from Thailand and Vietnam presented first-hand information on the current situation, expectations and impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in the respective country.
TVSEP presented at the Annual Meeting of the Allied Social Science Association in San Diego
The Allied Social Science Association (ASSA) held its annual meeting from January 3-5, 2020 in San Diego (https://www.aeaweb.org/). Each year the ASSA meetings bring together researchers from all over the world to discuss current economic topics. This year more than 10,000 researchers and scholars attended. Ute Rink and Wiebke Stein represented the TVSEP at the DFG “Research in Germany” booth in the ASSA Exhibit Hall, where they talked to interested researchers about the TVSEP database. Wiebke Stein also attended the AEA Poster Session and presented work from her TVSEP Add-On project on Behavioral insights into over-indebtedness within a vulnerable population. In their corresponding paper, Don´t expect too much – High income expectations and Over-Indebtedness, Wiebke Stein and her co-authors Theres Klühs and Melanie Koch, show that high income expectations are related to both objective and subjectively felt over-indebtedness.

The seminar was attended by a large number of researchers, including Professors from LUH and the University of Göttingen as well as post-docs and PhD students. There was a broad interest in TVSEP's activities and the seminar generated new ideas on collaborative research making use of the TVSEP data.
