Angrist and Krueger (1995)
Notes: This paper uses two data sets:
1. A 1980 census extract, also used in Angrist and Krueger (1991). Below you can download the ASCII file containing 329,509 observations on the following variables:
2. A CPS extract which contains 30,967 observations on men born 1944-53 from the 1979 and 1981-85 March CPS, matched to lottery number dummies for groups of 25 lottery numbers. Below you can download the Stata data set. There are 72 variables including all covariates used in the JBES article and in our NBER working paper. Follow the sample selection rules in the notes to the tables to reproduce the 25, 781 observation working sample. The CPS data were first used in Angrist and Krueger's unpublished 1992 NBER working paper. These data were also used in Alberto Abadie's (2002) JASA paper.
