Effects of Parental Separation on Schooling Outcomes

This paper examines the importance of parental separation, relative to other factors, in explaining the distribution of educational outcomes. Using a sample of men and women from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youths, I find that parental separation retains its significant negative effects in the presence of an expanded set of regressors but it ranks well behind other factors in the proportion of the variation in schooling outcomes explained.

Productivity Differences and the Marriage Wage Premium for White Males

Attempts to account for the positive, and often large, wage premium paid to married men based on their greater productivity have been inconclusive. Using data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth, this paper provides new evidence that labor productivity differences between married and never-married men are unlikely to be the cause of the marriage premium.
