|Title:||The Union Wage Effect and Ability Bias: Evidence from Ireland||Authors:||Walsh, Frank||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/8042||Date:||Jun-2013||Online since:||2016-10-12T15:46:28Z||Abstract:||We use longitudinal data from an Irish household survey to measure the union wage premium. A sub-sample where the worker's payslip was seen by the interviewer is unlikely to have measurement error for the union variable. The results support the finding that measurement error leads to a large downward bias in fixed effects estimates of the union effect but indicate that ability bias has a small effect on the average union wage premium.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Elsevier||Journal:||Economics Letters||Volume:||119||Issue:||3||Start page:||296||End page:||298||Copyright (published version):||2013 Elsevier||Keywords:||Union wage premium; Ability bias; Measurement error||DOI:||10.1016/j.econlet.2013.02.034||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
