A Dynamic Mincer Equation with an Application to Portuguese Data

Corrado Andini ()

No 2897, IZA Discussion Papers from Institute for the Study of Labor (IZA)

Abstract: This paper argues in favor of a dynamic specification of the Mincer equation, where past observed earnings play the role of additional explanatory variable for current observed earnings. A dynamic approach offers an explanation why the return to schooling in terms of observed earnings is not independent of labor-market experience, as suggested by some recent empirical evidence for the United States.
