The role of aggregation in estimating the effects of private school competition on student achievement
|Title:||The role of aggregation in estimating the effects of private school competition on student achievement||Authors:||Jepsen, Christopher||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/4436||Date:||Nov-2002||Online since:||2013-07-12T10:31:46Z||Abstract:||This paper investigates possible reasons for the disparity in results in the private school competition literature. In particular, the focus is on the data set, the grade range, and level of aggregation of the competition variable, and on the choice of OLS or IV estimation strategies. The results show that the size and significance of the competition variable depends on each of these attributes, although the grade range of the competition variable has a slightly smaller impact than the others. Private school competition does not have a consistently positive, significant effect on student achievement.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Elsevier||Journal:||Journal of Urban Economics||Volume:||52||Issue:||3||Start page:||477||End page:||500||Copyright (published version):||2002 Elsevier Science (USA)||Keywords:||Education; Private school competition; Aggregation||DOI:||10.1016/S0094-1190(02)00530-2||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
