Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Statistics
  • Unemployment
  • Econometrics

Gerard J. van den Berg mainly focuses on Unemployment, Labour economics, Econometrics, Duration and Wage. His Unemployment research focuses on Business cycle and how it relates to Gross domestic product and Health production. Gerard J. van den Berg has researched Labour economics in several fields, including Turnover and Exit rate.

His Econometrics research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Statistics, Microeconomics and Reservation wage. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Stochastic process, Survey data collection, Joint probability distribution and Social experiment. The concepts of his Wage study are interwoven with issues in Minimum wage, Panel data, Monopsony, Willingness to pay and Empirical research.

His most cited work include:

  • Duration Models: Specification, Identification, and Multiple Durations (588 citations)
  • The nonparametric identification of treatment effects in duration models (413 citations)
  • Economic Conditions Early in Life and Individual Mortality (301 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Unemployment, Econometrics, Labour economics, Duration and Demography. His studies deal with areas such as Business cycle, Survey data collection and Demographic economics as well as Unemployment. His Econometrics study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Statistics, Estimation, Wage and Search model.

His Labour economics study combines topics in areas such as Panel data, Turnover and Program evaluation. The study incorporates disciplines such as Stochastic process, Outcome, Moment and Set in addition to Duration. He combines subjects such as Life expectancy and Longevity with his study of Demography.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Unemployment (43.67%)
  • Econometrics (32.26%)
  • Labour economics (23.57%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Unemployment (43.67%)
  • Demography (18.11%)
  • Demographic economics (16.38%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His primary areas of study are Unemployment, Demography, Demographic economics, Labour economics and Econometrics. His work on Active Labor as part of general Unemployment study is frequently connected to Seekers, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them. His Demography study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Birth cohort, Recession and Instrumental variable.

His Demographic economics research includes elements of Fertility, Survey data collection and Welfare. His Econometrics research includes themes of Average treatment effect, Regression discontinuity design, Matching and Duration. Gerard J. van den Berg works mostly in the field of Duration, limiting it down to concerns involving Program evaluation and, occasionally, Inverse probability weighting and Outcome.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The causal effects of education on health outcomes in the UK Biobank (74 citations)
  • Long-Run Effects of Gestation during the Dutch Hunger Winter Famine on Labor Market and Hospitalization Outcomes (61 citations)
  • Paternal grandfather's access to food predicts all-cause and cancer mortality in grandsons (59 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Statistics
  • Unemployment
  • Econometrics

Gerard J. van den Berg mainly investigates Demography, Unemployment, Labour economics, Socioeconomic status and Demographic economics. His studies in Demography integrate themes in fields like Offspring, Birth cohort, Recession and Instrumental variable. He studied Recession and Business cycle that intersect with Bivariate analysis.

The Unemployment study combines topics in areas such as Moral hazard and Wage. His study looks at the relationship between Labour economics and topics such as Duration, which overlap with Empirical research, Parametric statistics and Truncation. His biological study deals with issues like Propensity score matching, which deal with fields such as Econometrics.
