Unobservable Family Effects and the Apparent External Benefits of Education.
Gibson, John
Economics of Education Review, v20 n3 p225-33 Jun 2001
Uses data from a sample of New Zealand twins to test the relationship between education and volunteering, holding unobservable family effects constant. Results show that education significantly reduces the probability of volunteering and the supply of volunteer hours. Volunteering may not be an external benefit of education.
