 Title: Do Marital Status and Computer Usage Really Change the Wage Structure? Evidence from a Sample of Twins Authors: Krashinsky, Harry A. Keywords: marriagecomputerwagesmeasurement error Issue Date: 1-Jun-2000 Series/Report no.: Working Papers (Princeton University. Industrial Relations Section) ; 439 Abstract: Both marital status and computer usage on the job have been found to increase earnings by as much as two additional years of schooling. If correct, these ﬁndings suggest that factors other than long-term human capital investments are key determinants of earnings. Data on identical twins are used in this paper to sweep out selection effects and examine the effect of marital status and computer usage on wages. Within-twin estimates indicate that, unlike education, job tenure and union status, neither marital status nor computer usage have a large or signiﬁcant effect on wages.
