Gross errors are caused by mistake in using instruments or meters, calculating measurement and recording data results. The best example of these errors is a person or operator reading pressure gage N/m2 as N/m2.

    The question whether a gender gap in education is associated with economic growth is assessed in two common ways in our sample. As shown in Table 1, half of the studies, and estimates, are based on gender-disaggregated measures for education (i.e. one measuring a country’s male and one measuring a country’s female education), which are included separately in the by: 2. If the dependent variable in a regression is measured with error, regression analysis and associated hypothesis testing are unaffected, except that the R 2 will be lower than it would be with perfect measurement.

We suggest a methodology for correcting this error Cited by: Measurement error in education and growth regressions an underestimation of the growth of education during the period.1 Classical errors in variables would lead to an underestimation of the coefficient for education in a growth regression.

The opposite holds in this case, because. The perpetual inventory method used for the construction of education data per country leads to systematic measurement error. This paper analyses the effect of this measurement error on GDP regressions.

There is a systematic difference in the education level between census data and observations constructed from enrolment data. However, research aimed at validating the inclusion of education measures in growth regressions has yet to reach a consensus, often finding that the sign and significance of education depends on.

Barro and Lee (, ) constructed education data from census information where available, and for miss-ing information used enrolment data and the perpetual inventory method for updating.

Measurement error in education is widely recognized has an important source of bias in growth regressions; see for example Krueger and Lindahl (). This paper shows that the way Barro and Lee () constructed the education data yields a systematic error.

In order to study the effect of alternative economic growth measures on the reported findings, we include one dummy variable in our meta-regression model which equals one, if the study uses the real GDP growth as a proxy for economic growth and zero if real per capita growth measures (GDP growth per-capita, per worker, or per labor force-aged person) are by: Di⁄erence this to eliminate the –xed e⁄ect i.

This paper studies the puzzling lack of correlation between income and schooling in macro regressions. It is argued that the root of the puzzle is threefold.

First, there is a problem of a proper definition of the way in which years of schooling should enter into a production function. Second, collinearity between physical and human capital stocks seriously undermines the ability.This paper surveys the literature which examines the effect of education on economic growth.

Specifically, we apply meta-regression analysis to 57 studies with estimates and show that there is.MEASUREMENT ERROR MODELS XIAOHONG CHEN and HAN HONG and DENIS NEKIPELOV1 Key words: Linear or nonlinear errors-in-variables models, classical or nonclassical measurement errors, attenuation bias, instrumental variables, double measurements, deconvolution, auxiliary sample JEL Classification: C1, C3 1 IntroductionFile Size: KB.
