Double Trouble: On the Value of Twins-Based Estimation of the Return to Schooling.
Bound, John; Solon, Gary
Economics of Education Review, v18 n2 p169-82 Apr 1999
Summarizes the literature on twins-based estimations of schooling returns. Examines implications of endogenous determination of which twin goes to school longer and of measuring schooling with error. Twin-based estimation may complement other methodologies, but is vulnerable to the same inconsistency that afflicts conventional cross-sectional estimation. (44 references) (MLH)
