The Role of Legal Gender Change on Labor Market Outcomes: A Sibling-Based Comparison of Transgender Individuals
Erwan Dujeancourt (

This study provides new evidence on the labor market outcomes of transgender individuals using population register data from Sweden from 2006 to 2021. Focusing on a sample of more than 900 transgender individuals who underwent legal gender changes between 2013 and 2020, I conduct a comparative analysis of their labor market outcomes with their cisgender siblings. The findings reveal significant disparities, as transgender individuals are less likely to be fully employed and experience lower labor income compared to their cisgender siblings. I find that cisgender men are significantly more likely to be fully employed compared to cisgender sisters, transgender brothers, and transgender sisters, respectively. The results show that transgender men have significantly lower labor income than their cisgender siblings. Moreover, transgender women are significantly less likely to achieve full employment following their legal gender change compared to their cisgender siblings. These findings underscore the precarious economic position of transgender individuals in Sweden.

The effects of deferred action for childhood arrivals on labor market outcomes
Nhan Tran (

I study the effects of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA) on labor market outcomes among potentially eligible immigrants. Using a regression discontinuity design, I find very little to no effects on the probability of working. Furthermore, I find no effect on wage income or the probability of working in high-skilled jobs. The estimates in this paper suggest that temporary legal status has limited effects for the older group of DACA-eligible individuals.

Is Slacktivism Harmless? Unintended Consequences of Social Media Activism
Amanda Bonheur (

It has become common for people to post to social media in support of a cause, which has raised concerns that vital, higher-cost actions of support may be crowded out by these visible, low-effort options. For example, the media voiced this ‘slacktivism’ concern when 28 million people posted a black square on Instagram in the wake of George Floyd’s murder. I create a model to demonstrate that the effect of social media on total contributions is ambiguous and depends on the impact of posting itself. Using a between-subject laboratory experiment, I causally show that a social media environment not only crowds out donations, it crowds out total contributions. Subjects who send - or “post” - a digital message to peers stating ‘I support racial justice’ are less likely to donate to racial justice charities than those who did not have the option to publicize their support. Importantly, posting does not encourage others to give, meaning total contributions are reduced and slacktivism occurs. Those who would have donated a small amount use the posting environment to justify not donating anything. My results are driven by non-activists. Motivated reasoning and moral licensing are the underlying mechanisms. This shows that public posts of support - such as those made on social media - can negatively impact social justice campaigns and organizations.

Government Responses to Scandal: Child Protection Responses and Outcomes After High-Profile Deaths
Alice Heath (

How do government agencies change policy and practice in the face of a news scandal? Under what circumstances do these responses improve citizen welfare? This paper examines how child protection agencies respond to high-profile child maltreatment deaths and whether the responses help or harm children and families. I first identify high-profile deaths in US states and counties between 2000 and 2019 by developing a text analysis algorithm and applying it to full-text local newspaper archives. I then estimate the impact of a high-profile death on agency practices and child outcomes using an event study design that exploits random timing of the deaths. A high-profile death causes an expected 20% increase in a jurisdiction’s removal rate in the 24 months following an event. Following the scandals, neither child injuries nor accident or homicide deaths decline despite the increased removal rates. Work in progress will investigate whether children removed are from a wider risk distribution, lower-skill investigators are most likely to increase their removal rates, or the size of the response is correlated with political factors that are unrelated to welfare. I aim to assess whether government responses to child protection scandals are driven by updated assessments of child risk, or by political and behavioral factors.

Labor Demand and the Supply of College Courses
Jacob Light (

This project studies how college/university courses adjust to changing skill demand in the labor market. Using a unique “course catalog” dataset containing detailed information for the full set of courses offered at a nationally representative sample of more than 400 US colleges and universities, totaling 11 million courses offered over the last two decades, I measure changing course supply in response to changing student demand in two ways. First, I estimate the elasticity of course supply to course enrollment using an instrumental variables strategy that isolates the portion of changing student enrollment attributable to changing occupational demand in the labor market. Second, I use Natural Language Processing methods to estimate the changing “skill-relevance” of college courses relative to the skills listed in contemporaneous job descriptions. In both analyses, I use the diversity of institutions in my sample to conduct a heterogeneity analysis to show which institutional characteristics (e.g. faculty composition, revenue structure, size) enable/hinder institutions’ responses to changing labor market conditions. The analyses collectively provide novel insight into the instructional supply side of higher education.

Neighborhoods and Racial Differences in Policing: Evidence from Stop-and-Frisk
Gerard Domènech-Arumí (

I study the effects of out-group exposure in local environments on racial differences in policing. I combine street stops data from a large police department and the universe of properties in the state to match officers to an exact address. I find that: (i) 60% of all individuals stopped are Black; (ii) White officers predominantly live in White neighborhoods; and (iii) those more exposed to Blacks are more productive in all-Black interactions (e.g., more likely to find a weapon during a stop). Exploiting quasi-random variation in the race of officers' next-door neighbors, I find that stops from White officers with a new Black neighbor (iv) involve relatively fewer Blacks, (v) are more productive, and (vi) less violent (less likely to include a frisk or search). These findings are consistent with the contact hypothesis and suggest that segregation can amplify racial differences in policing.

Persistence of Policy Choices: The Case of Close Referendums 
Zach Freitas-Groff (                                                             

Using a novel dataset, I produce the first systematic empirical evidence on how long policy choices matter and why. Considering the statutory history of close U.S. state-level referen- dums since 1900, I find that narrowly-passed laws are 40 percentage points more likely to be operative than those that narrowly fail up to a century later. A game-theoretic model, data on referendum timing, and heterogeneity analysis suggest that transient political attention drives persistence. This contrasts with mechanisms discussed in existing literature, which largely focus on endogenous responses to existing policy. At an econometric level, the results lend support to long-term policy event-study designs. At a practical level, the results provide guidance for the time horizon of cost-benefit analysis, the relationship between culture and constitutional design, and the optimal threshold for accepting imperfect policies.

A double penalty: The negative effects of perceived discrimination on subsequent labor market outcomes
Hannah Ruebeck (

There are high rates of self-reported experiences of discrimination at work. Like other fairness concerns, these experiences could affect employee-employer relationships, productivity, and labor supply. Given the disparate burden of perceived (and real) discrimination on women and racial minority men, these effects could further exacerbate labor supply and promotion gaps caused by discrimination itself. In an online experiment with 2300 workers, I show that perceived discrimination by a manager in a task assignment stage leads to lower retention and future labor supply, more pessimism about future promotion possibilities, lower job satisfaction, and mixed effects on effort on required tasks. On the other hand, when algorithms and managers make similar (biased-seeming) promotion decisions in the past, people perceive algorithms to be discriminating half as often as human decision-makers, and perceptions of algorithmic discrimination do not have these negative follow-on effects. Together, these results suggest (1) that firms could increase productivity via several channels by reducing workers’ perceptions of discrimination (starting with eliminating bias in manager decision-making, though this may not alone be sufficient), and (2) that the proliferation of algorithms in the labor market could have positive effects through the channel of perceived discrimination.

Legalized Same-Sex Marriage and Coming Out: Evidence from Catholic Seminaries
Rohit Ticku (

We study the effect of the legalization of same-sex marriage on coming out in the United States. We overcome data limitations by inferring coming out decisions through a revealed preference mechanism. We exploit data on enrollment in seminary studies for the Catholic priesthood, hypothesizing that Catholic priests’ vow of celibacy may act as a cover for gay men who do not wish to come out. Using a difference-in-differences design that exploits variation in the timing of legalization across states, we find that city-level enrollment in priestly studies fell by about 12% exclusively in states adopting the reform. The celibacy norm appears to be driving our results since we find no effect on enrollment in ministry studies that do not require celibacy. We also find that coming out decisions, as inferred through enrollment in priestly studies, are primarily affected by the presence of gay communities and by prevailing social attitudes toward gays. We explain our findings with a stylized model.

Gender-based Discrimination in Personal Care Services: Experimental Evidence
Duc Hien Nguyen (

In this study, I conduct an online experiment to investigate discrimination based on visible gender expression. Gender expression refers to the ways in which workers communicate their gender identity through behavior, clothing, hairstyles, and verbal and non-verbal cues to family, friends, coworkers, and the external social world. In this study, I conceptualize gender expression as a continuum from very feminine, androgynous (equally feminine and masculine), to very masculine. Since understanding of masculinity and femininity is also mediated by cultural factors, notably racialized sexual stereotypes such as Black people are hypermasculine and aggressive, and Asian people are submissive and hyperfeminine, this experiment is also an intersectional study of how gender and race interacts as employment barriers. The experiment consists of two fictional hiring scenario. Participants are shown fictional profile of four job candidates, all of whom are men but three are masculine-presenting and one is feminine-presenting. The three masculine workers are White, Black, and Asian (one per each race), while the feminine worker is randomly selected to be one of the three races. The worker profiles also vary randomly by age, education attainment, qualifications, and experiences. The masculine portrait and feminine portrait are created based on six real-life male persons, through a combination of makeup, costumes, accessories, and digital photo-editing. After viewing the workers, participants are asked to decide who to interview for the jobs and the hourly wage rate they want to offer. In the treatment group, participants need to hire a personal care attendant (PCA) for their elderly parents. In the control group, participants need to hire a group fitness facilitator for a senior home where their parents live. Participants are recruited through the online platform Prolific, and our final sample consists of 1,598 participants. The initial result shows that after controlling for workers’ characteristics and participants’ perception, Asian and Black workers receive significantly higher interview rate than White workers. However, there are significant differences based on gender expression. In our preferred specification, the Asian masculine worker, Black feminine worker, and Black masculine worker has 12, 9, and 6 percentage point advantage, respectively, over the White masculine worker for the group fitness instructor position. In contrast, the White feminine worker has 6 percentage point lower in interview rate. For the personal care attendant position, the Asian masculine and Black feminine workers have 13 and 12 percentage point lead, respectively in interview rate compared to the White masculine workers, while the White feminine worker has 7 percentage point lower.  These substantial differences are in the same order of magnitude with the effect of having college degree or having an additional year of experience.

The Gender Minority Gaps in Confidence and Self-Evaluations
Billur Aksoy (

An increasing share of the population identifies their gender in some way different than male or female. Yet, we know relatively little about the economic behaviors and beliefs of gender diverse individuals. In this paper, we leverage data on middle school and high school students that allows us to examine how gender diverse individuals evaluate their own performance relative to their peers who identify as male or female. We find that both female students and gender diverse students are less confident and provide less favorable self-evaluations than equally performing male students. In addition, gender diverse students are even less confident and provide even less favorable self-evaluations than equally performing female students. We thus document a “gender minority gap” in confidence and in self-evaluations.

Impact of Abolishing the Sterilization Requirement for Legal Gender Change on the Trans-population
Rinni Norlinder (

In 2013, Sweden abolished the requirement to be sterilized before being able to change legal gender marker. We use detailed population wide register data, including information on medical diagnoses and socioeconomic variables, to study the impact of the abolishment on the selection into gender affirming health care, and the health and labor market outcomes of those who go through gender transition. Our analysis is carried out under the lens of the dual forms of oppression – based on gender and on being trans – that may face transgender persons in different ways as they change legal gender. Preliminary results indicate that many more persons seek gender affirming care and change their legal gender when sterilization is no longer needed to do so. Without this demand, younger people, and more persons who were assigned female at birth, seek gender affirming care and change their legal gender. Effects on earnings and health are still to be estimated.

Australia’s LGBTIQ Data Landscape and emerging research on LGBTIQ health disparities
Karinna Saxby (

The past decades have seen rapid changes in societal attitudes and policy surrounding members of the LGBTIQ community, however this community continues to experience adverse social and economic outcomes relative to their cisgendered heterosexual counterparts. Understanding the LGBTIQ data landscape is essential to promote scholarship in this space and highlight avenues for future data collection. In this presentation, I will provide an overview of the 17 national data surveys in Australia that capture information on either sexual or gender diversity. I will then turn to describe some of the empirical research emerging from these data assets and in particular provide examples on how different surveys can be used to investigate LGBTIQ+ health disparities.
