Union selection effects - some inconsistent models

Martin Wittenberg ()

No 133, SALDRU Working Papers from Southern Africa Labour and Development Research Unit, University of Cape Town

Abstract: We show that some of the models which have been used in the South African literature to estimate union selection effects are logically inconsistent. This is a much more serious problem than a failure to identify the coefficient. It implies that the model cannot be true in any possible state of the world. Unfortunately the offending specification is becoming entrenched in the literature.
