This should be a data set for a (partial?) replication of Dee's (2004) article on the purported civics returns to education. I use these data for in-class illustration about instrumental variable analyses.
A data frame with 9227 observations on the following 8 variables.
a numeric vector that should be understood as categorical
a numeric vector for if the person is Hispanic
a numeric vector for if the person went to college
a numeric vector for if the person is black
a numeric vector for if the person is another race
a numeric vector for if the person is a woman
a numeric vector for if the person is registered to vote
a numeric vector for the distance to college
I should note I acquired this data set in Mexico City sitting on a two-week program at IPSA-FLACSO Mexico Summer School in 2019. The sample size here (9,227) is about two thousand short of what Dee reports in his article. It'll do, though.
