Behrman, Jere R.; Rosenzweig, Mark R.
Economics of Education Review, v18 n2 p159-67 Apr 1999
Using a new twins sample, presents new estimates of schooling returns and "ability" bias and tests that bias's significance. Ability bias may exist even if ability's genetically-endowed component does not affect schooling decisions directly when correlated with other family characteristics (like income) that do affect schooling.
