Dillon and Smith (2017) on the effects of mismatch

A much revised version of my paper with Eleanor Dillon at Arizona State on the consequences of academic match between students and colleges is now available as a CESifo working paper. It is also available on my web page.

The new version expands the analysis to include the NLSY-79 cohort as well as the NLSY-97 cohort, which allows us to compare our estimates of the effects of college quality, student ability, and their interaction between the two cohorts. It also allows us to present very long-run estimates of earnings effects for the earlier cohort. The new version also features a completely re-written literature survey that focuses exclusively on the (small but growing) literature on match.

Comments very welcome!
