This quasi experimental set up provides a unique opportunity to investigate the relationship between changes in student ...

    Risks and Returns to Educational Fields - A financial asset approach to vocational and academic education

    Speaker: Johanna Storck

    Applying a financial assets approach, we investigate the risks and returns to investments into different types of human capital. Even so the returns from investing in human capital have expensively been studied, little is known about the properties of the return to different types of human capital. Using information from the German Micro Census, we estimate the risk and returns to around 70 fields ...

    When can we trust population thresholds in regression discontinuity designs

    Speaker: Florian Ade, Ronny Freier
    Location: Eleanor-Dulles-Raum
    DIW Berlin im Quartier 110
    Room 5.2.010
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:30 - 13:30

    A recent literature uses variation just around legislative population thresholds to identify causal effects of institutional changes. We review the use of regression discontinuity designs using such thresholds. Our concern is threefold: (1) simultaneous exogenous (co-)treatment, (2) simultaneous endogenous choices and (3) manipulation and precise control over population measures. Revisiting the ...
