Family Background and Returns to Schooling in Taiwan.
Liu, Jin-Tan; Hammitt, James K.; Jeng Lin, Chyongchiou
Economics of Education Review, v19 n1 p113-25 Feb 2000
Including family background variables in the wage equation significantly decreases estimated returns to a worker's own schooling. Using data on family members' schooling, this paper identifies family background's substantial effects on returns to schooling in Taiwan. The father's schooling is more important than the mother's in explaining wage variations. (Contains 27 references.) (MLH)
