Abstract: Econometric methods are most commonly applied either using historical or experimental data. In order to test a certain theory, experimental data are created in a target-oriented way in a (perfectly) controlled environment, whereas historical data uses information from the past. My dissertation makes use of both data alternatives. The first part of my dissertation (Chapters 1 to 3) is based on historical data, mainly from the German Federal Employment Agency, to investigate wage dynamics in the German labor market over the last four decades. For the second part of my dissertation, experimental data have been collected in the field (Chapter 4) as well as in the laboratory (Chapter 5) to investigate individual donation behavior. The common ground of all five chapters is the application of econometric methods in a microeconomic context.
