  点:No.2 Teaching Building, Room 205 (二教205)

 

 要: We estimate returns to education using cognitive skill matching. Returns to education decline after matching group dummy variables are included. This implies that ignoring unobserved ability causes OLS estimates of returns to education to be upward biased (by 27%-28%). Using scores from the National College Entrance Examination, we find that a 10 point increase is associated with a 2% increase in monthly wage.
