Left behind by Birth Month
Solli, Ingeborg Foldøy
Education Economics, v25 n4 p323-346 2017
Utilizing comprehensive administrative data from Norway I investigate long-term birth month effects. I demonstrate that the oldest children in class have a substantially higher GPA than their younger peers. The birth month differences are larger for low-SES children. Furthermore, I find that the youngest children in class are lagging significantly behind their older peers on the educational track, and need more time to reach the same level of earnings.
