Model Uncertainty and Race and Gender Heterogeneity in the College Entry Decision.
Tobias, Justin L.
Economics of Education Review, v21 n3 p211-19 Jun 2002
Uses a flexible modeling strategy to examine the roles of measured ability, family characteristics, and proxies for secondary schooling quality as determinants of the decision to enter college. Finds that the link functions and estimated impacts of ability and family characteristics on the probabilities of enrolling in college are not constant across race and gender groups.
