Further Estimates of the Economic Return to Schooling from a New Sample of Twins.
Rouse, Cecilia Elena
Economics of Education Review, v18 n2 p149-57 Apr 1999
Reexamines Ashenfelter and Krueger's estimates of schooling returns (13%), using three additional years of the same twins survey. Finds a 10% return per year of schooling completed. The within-twin regression estimate of schooling's effect in the log wage is smaller than the cross-sectional estimate. (14 references) (MLH)
