Biases in Twin Estimates of the Return to Schooling.
Neumark, David
Economics of Education Review, v18 n2 p143-48 Apr 1999
Recent within-twin estimates of schooling returns are considerably higher than existing estimates. This paper shows that small ability differences among twins can yield more upward omitted-ability bias (and more upward bias overall) in the instrumental variables estimate correcting for measurement error than in the standard within-twin estimate.
