    Replication materials for:

    Watts, T. W. (2020). Academic Achievement and Economic Attainment: Re-examining Associations Between Test Scores and Long-Run Earnings. AERA Open.

    This project uses NCDS data to examine the association between adolescent achievement tests and adult earnings. Data are publicly available from the UK Data Service website (https://beta.ukdataservice.ac.uk/datacatalogue/series/series?id=2000032). Analysts are asked to create a username and password before accepting a license agreement for using the data.

    A zip file has been posted here which contains a README document and a set of Stata do-files (i.e., analytic syntax files). The README provides details on the datasets that should be downloaded from the UK Data Service website to replicate the presented results, and also explains the ordering of the Stata do-files. The Stata do-files contain all of the code necessary to replicate the tables shown in the main text and supplementary material.

    UPDATE: An additional README and corrected do-file have been posted to fix several missing data values in the data cleaning syntax (see "README- Corrigendum Update" and "1. Clean Child Datasets- Update.do").
