8310 * Based on t-distribution. The downward bias could arise from the general tendency to overestimate one’s education level. this variable is unobserved and therefore contained in the error term of wage model. According to test scores and p-values we fail to reject the null hypothesis at a very large significance level. To construct a statistics to test H0 : β1 = β2 = β we used the following formula: z=√ β1 − β2 σ1 2 − σ2 2 The result is illustrated in Table 2.0137 0. The columns (3) in Table 1 report results of 2SLS regression results. These suggest that the measurement error in schooling were driving down the coefficient on return to education. some part of measurement error.9947 0. the constant in both OLS and 2SLS models are statistically insignificant.0046 0. which might have resulted in smaller variation of schooling variable among individuals than it should have been in fact.0000 0. authors performed a 2SLS estimation by using the education level of each twin reported by the other twin (cross-twin education report) as an instrument for education. In order to correct for the problem of endogeneity. so must be the differences in R2 . However. each additional year of education is likely to increase wage rate by about 7. with p-values of 0. c) The most obvious and widely discussed reason why education might be endogenous variable in wage model is because people’s ability is likely to affect both their wage and their education level. and σ1 2 . the simple OLS model has endogeneity problem that could arise from the influence of unobserved ability on education and from the measurement error of schooling. Therefore. However.

Therefore. instrumenting education variable by a cross-twin report on education level of each twin is aiming to correct for the measurement error. (2003). where • S1f . However. However. their correlation is not zero. consider the model for the wage rate of first twin in each family f with 1 self-reported education variable S1f . as the measurement error is part of the error term of log-wage model. 1 log w1f = β1 + β2 S1f + β3 X1f + u1f 1×1 1×1  ⇐⇒ log w1f = 1 1 S1f 1×K 1×1    β1 X1f β2  + u1f β3 where • X1f . Bearing this in mind. one can argue that individuals with higher preferences for employment are also highly likely to pursue schooling compared to other individuals.Therefore. Instead of self-reported education 1 2 level. To correct the problem we could use the IV estimator. also mentioned by Bonjour et al. we use the predicted value from the cross-twin report obtained from regressing S1f on S1f . Then the coefficients in log-wage model will be determined as follows: 1 2 βˆ = β + En S1f γˆ 0 En X1f  −1   En X1f En u1f 2 2 u1f )ˆ γ En S1f X1f γˆ  En (S1f 0 0 En (X1f u1f ) En (X1f X1f ) 2 En S1f γˆ 2 2 2 En (S1f ) γˆ 0 2 En (X1f S1f )ˆ γ 4 . who have smaller taste for work. (2005). is the measurement error (discussed in b)). They argue that the log-wage model implicitly assumes that education does not affect the labour supply decision and therefore drops labour supply determinants from model specification. Therefore. this may cause additional correlation between education and the error term. The problem is that the self-reported schooling might contain the measurement error: 1 1 S1f = S1f + v1f . there is another possibility for endogeneity of education in wage models. the exogeneity assumption that error term and regressors should be uncorrelated is violated.the measurement error of twin 1.the true education level of twin 1 in family f . we obtain biased estimator for education. Another reason for endogeneity of education. 1 • v1f . As argued in b). According to Bingley et al. the vector of coefficients β from log-wage model would be found by the following formula −1    1 En S1f En X1f En u1f 2 2 1 1 1 u1f )  βˆ = β +  En S1f X1f )  En (v1f ) En (S1f X1f ) + En (v1f En (S1f ) + En (v1f 0 0 0 0 1 0 En (X1f u1f ) En X1f En (X1f S1f ) + En (X1f v1f ) En (X1f X1f ) According to the weak law of large numbers the first and third elements of the second matrix will converge in probability to zero as n → ∞. To illustrate this.1 × K matrix of all other exogenous regressors.

Thus. we can think that the standard error of estimators were computed under the assumption of homoskedasticity. We found that the homoskedasticity hypothesis could be rejected already at 2. using command ”estat hettest”. This test imlicitly assumed normality of the residuals. we know that S1f itself has a measurement error.5860 3. 2 Exogeneity argument is harder to justify. we noticed large discrepancies in test results in response the change in assumptions about the error term. one cannot state with certainty that the instrument is always uncorrelated with the error term in the log-wage model.1221 0.9265 0.

This argument supports the relevance of an instrument.1% significance level. We first test our OLS model for heteroskedasticity.2528 1. failed the normality test based on skewness and kurtosis. according to Stata. and the more contemporaneous analog of it would be the command ”ivregress 2sls depvar [varlist1 ] (varlist2 and varlistIV ).

We have included heteroskedasticity-robust standard errors in square brackets below standard errors computed under the homoskedasticity assumption in Table 1. the estimation results are very similar. Therefore. Unchanged standard errors may also suggest that heterogeneity caused by one factor inside the error term is roughly canceled out by the heterogeneity caused by another factor in the error term.Despite the contradicting test results.0394 0. except the standard error of OLS coefficient. it would be better to report heteroskedasticity-robust standard errors.039 0. For the within-twins IV estimates. in our mind (see Figure 1).0141 0.0774 (0. the Figure 1: Estimated residuals from pooled OLS visual inspection of the residuals against regressors plot suggests presence of hetmodel eroskedasticity.

According to those. g) The constant drops exactly because we are estimating the differenced equation. when we performed the regressions in e). we fail to reject the null hypothesis of homoskedasticity at a very high significance level. Based on the plot. it is better to report the robust errors. (2003). the heteroskedasticityrobust standard error of education coefficient has decreased. making the coefficient of return to education statistically-significant at 2. 1 log w1f = β1 + β2 S1f + β3 X1f + a1f + u1f 2 log w2f = β1 + β2 S2f + β3 X2f + a2f + u2f 1 2 =⇒ (log w1f − log w2f ) = β1 − β1 + β2 (S1f − S2f ) + β3 (X1f − X2f ) + (a1f − a2f ) + u1f − u2f Therefore. at least. we believe that this model’s residuals are also heteroskedastic. Indeed. However. 7 . As is evident from the table.9% significance level. if not eliminate. we also decided to plot the residuals against the regressor (see Figure 2). are likely to have almost same abilities. we still must be careful in interpreting the coefficient with this standard error. the coefficient in front of it will be statistically-insignificant. The heteroskedasticity robust errors are reported in square brackets in Table 4.790 in 2SLS model).background. h) Table 3 summarizes the test results for the Figure 2: Within-twin pair OLS model residuals within-twin pair estimation model as well. we have found that the constant not statistically-different from zero (p-value at 0. the ability bias. given high sensitivity of the test results to the assumptions about the error term.763 in OLS model and at 0. However. However. Thus. but this time dropping the observations for which the absolute hourly wage difference is greater than 60. i) Table 5 summarizes the results of re-estimating the model in e). even if we include a constant in the model explicitly. In the presence of heteroskedasticity. this time including constant. there might also be some other idisyncratic ability determinants that will still show up in the differenced equation’s error term. subtracting the log-wage equation of one from the log-wage equation of the other is likely to substantially reduce. as it is too low due to doubling measurement error as argued by Bonjour et al.

The observed relative ages may not be random. which in turn means better training for them and better test scores. it is the case for most of students in their sample. but are representatives of some population group and we shall not drop them out. while being relatively older in the class. Bedard and Dhuey use the instrumental variable approach.077 on the full Bonjour et al. Relatively more mature students might already been pre-selected to a more advanced curriculum. These students might get better scores on a second year just because the course materials being familiar to them. As Bedard and Dhuey (2006) argue. The assigned relative age.within-twin pair IV estimates of 0. sample including the outlying twin pairs. However. they did not report explicitly the results for control variables. Either schools or parents may decide to waive start of schooling by one year based on abilities of a child. the coefficient would be upward biased. 9 . 11) and. according to Bedard and Dhuey (2006). this instrument satisfies exogeneity condition. a)3. R. the relevance conditon could also fail due to reasons discussed in a)1 and a)2 above. Thus. given the cut-off date in Canada being January 1. so we cannot compare them directly. However. Since the argument is that younger students are expected to perform worse than older students within the same grade. To correct for endogeneity problem. a kid born in December is the youngest eligible and is assigned R = 0. while a child born in January is the oldest and is assigned R = 11.” Thus. roughly speaking. Question 2 a) Bedard and Dhuey (2006) list several possible reasons for endogeneity of age: a)1. there is a possibility that younger students may have to repeat the grade. they compute the so-called assigned relative age and use it as an instrument for age. is the difference between the cut-off month and the birth month. takes discrete values on (0. The results could be seen below in Table 6. In particular. it is likely that the outliers are not just random errors. For students who start education at school on time and do not repeat the grade the observed and assigned relative age are strongly positively correlated. We have also included coefficients on other control variables that were included in the model by the authors. As long as the month of birth of child is thought to be random. b) We have replicated OLS and IV estimations reported in Table III in the paper by Bedard and Dhuey (2006).082 and 0. For example. a)2. While the argument seems realistic as it is hard to target specific month of birth. some parents could still target the certain quarter of birth.
