Abstract: This dissertation analyzes three independent topics based on two different kinds of datasets, the German Socio Economic Panel (SOEP) and the Austrian Social Security Database (ASSD). Chapter 2 analyzes differences in expectations and realizations in return migration using the SOEP. Chapter 3 analyzes bereavement and early life outcomes also using this dataset. While Chapters 4 and 5 analyze employment based networks and displacement in the context of the labor market using the ASSD. The SOEP is a representative longitudinal survey of households and their members in Germany conducted for over 25 years. The SOEP's aim is to collect representative micro-data on individuals, households and families in order to measure stability and change in living conditions. The ASSD is a matched employer-employee database, which covers the universe of private sector workers covered by the social security system in Austria between 1972 and 2009. It provides daily information on employment, registered unemployment, total annual earnings paid by each employer, and various individual characteristics of the workers as well as information on employers such as geographical location, industry, and size.
