dc.description.abstractUsing a sample of prime-aged men from the German Socio-Economic Panel (GSOEP), thispaper examines the effects of past poverty experience on future poverty status, futureemployment status and household composition. The empirical results suggest that even aftercontrolling for observed and unobserved characteristics, past poverty experience increasesthe poverty risk of future periods. Moreover, there is evidence that experiencing poverty hasa negative effect on future employment behaviour and on household cohesion. Apart from itseconomic significance, the existence of such feedback effects is interesting from aneconometric point of view, as they represent a violation of the strict exogeneity assumption,which is usually invoked in estimating dynamic qualitative response models with unobservedheterogeneity.en_US
