Returns To Schooling In Egypt

Topic: I2. Education and Research Institutions

completed Project

This project aims to estimate the causal effect of education on earnings for Egypt. In this study, we use the reduction in the duration of primary school from six to five years in 1988 as an instrumental variable for education in the identification of the wage returns to schooling. The substantial change in the completed years of schooling resulting from the reform suggests that we have a strong instrument.
