Self-Evaluation and Overconfidence in Different Life Domains

Short Description:: We measure overconfidence in various domains of life and over several waves. These measures, in combination with the rich panel structure in the SOEP, allow us to examine the prevalence of overconfidence in different domains and how overconfidence responds to life events. We also investigate how overconfidence affects labor-market outcomes.
