Effect of Religious Attendance on Years of Schooling in the USA
Mohanty, Madhu S.
Education Economics, v24 n4 p411-426 2016
Using data from the USA, the study demonstrates that an individual's completed years of schooling later in life is positively related to his/her frequency of religious attendance during youth. Using the propensity score matching technique, the study shows that this relationship is causal. This conclusion remains valid for youths of different religious and demographic groups considered in this study. This finding has important policy implications, and thus it calls for attention of researchers, educationists and policy-makers.
