For this purpose, we exploit the introduction of short school years (SSYs) in Germany in 1966–1967, which compressed the education phase without affecting the curriculum. Based on difference-in-differences ...

This prediction is empirically validated using data from the German Socioeconomic Panel (SOEP). We provide empirical ...
