Notes: The following programs create the estimates reported in two tables. Estimates other than those in the appendix were constructed similarly using the same data (three.rar). Coding and documentation for compulsory attendance laws are in a separate archive.
Note also that the compulsory attendance (CA) first stage is mislabeled in Tables 4 and 5. The effects reported in the tables are for CA9, CA10, and CA11.
Software Requirements: SAS
CompSchoolLaws contains data and documentation on compulsory attendance laws by state.
three.rar is the micro data set used by the programs posted above.
