  • Two-sided 95% robust confidence intervals in parentheses. Each cell presents a coefficient estimate on the exposure dummy defined in the main text. Sample for hours worked and earnings was restricted to positive values and to those aged 18–65 y in 2007, for test scores, 8–15 y olds in 2007, and for birth weight, retrospective data was used for those aged 0–5 y in 1993. Birth weights greater than 7 kgs were dropped from sample (outliers probably due to measurement or recording errors).
