Antelius, Jesper; Bjorklund, Anders
Scandinavian Journal of Educational Research, v44 n4 p341-55 Dec 2000
Studied the reliability and accuracy of data from Statistics Sweden's Level of Living Surveys (register data) on the return on schooling using a sample of 2,914 adults. Findings show that this register data does not show some partial secondary and postsecondary studies that did not lead to degrees, and that there are difference in annual and hourly earnings estimates that require correction to enable accurate register use.
