PhD candidate - NIDI-KNAW - Explaining differences in union dissolution between municipalities
The PhD candidate will focus on explaining to what extent differences in union dissolution rates between Dutch neighborhoods and municipalities can be accounted for by compositional (individual characteristics such as religious involvement, household income and level of education), contextual (environment average religious involvement, household income and educational attainment) and cross-level effects (interactions between individual and contextual characteristics). The PhD candidate will perform analyses on linked survey and register data, available from Statistics Netherlands (CBS). Analysis will occur either on-site at CBS or at NIDI via Remote Access. Given the nested structure of the data, most analysis will be performed using multilevel modeling.
