Twin Data vs. Longitudinal Data to Control for Unobserved Variables in Earnings Functions — Which Are the Differences?

2007 (English)In: Oxford Bulletin of Economics and Statistics, ISSN 0305-9049, E-ISSN 1468-0084, Vol. 69, no 3, p. 339-362Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This paper compares two different approaches empirically to control for unobserved characteristics when estimating the effect of marriage on male and female earnings: the longitudinal and the twins approach. The estimates were obtained by exploiting the longitudinal dimension of a large sample of Swedish twins, so that longitudinal and twin-based estimates could be obtained in the same sample. The two approaches lead to different conclusions both regarding the role of unobserved characteristics in the cross-sectional earnings–marriage relationship and the effect of marriage on earnings. The paper investigates three potential explanations of this difference.
