ALLBUS award 2022

We are happy to share that the paper "Cohort Changes in the Level and Dispersion of Gender Ideology After German Reunification: Results from a Natural Experiment." by Christian Ebner, Michael Kühhirt and Philipp M. Lersch has won the ALLBUS award for best paper 2022. Utilizing data from the German General Social Survey (ALLBUS) from 1991 to 2016, the analysis finds East German birth cohorts socialized before reunification to hold more egalitarian gender attitudes than younger cohorts, as well as than their West German counterparts. Despite convergence of gender ideologies between East and West over time, a gap still remains in 2016.
