Misbehavior, education, and labor market outcomes


Segal, Carmit (2013). Misbehavior, education, and labor market outcomes. Journal of the European Economic Association, 11(4):743-779.

Abstract

Using data on young men from the National Education Longitudinal Survey, this paperinvestigates the relationship between childhood misbehavior and later education and labor marketoutcomes. The main finding is that eighth-grade misbehavior is important for earnings overand above eighth-grade test scores. Moreover, controlling for educational attainment, childhoodmisbehavior is associated with earnings at all educational levels, whereas achievement test scoresare related to earnings only for young men with postsecondary degrees. Possible explanations forthe association between eighth-grade misbehavior and economic success are explored.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
