Sheepskin effects and screening in Colombia
This article uses the Hungerford and Solon Test  for calculating the sheepskin effect of returns from the education in Colombian labour market in 2000. It was found that the secondary school graduates enjoyed 13% returns whilst a university degree led to 17% returns. The Hungerford and Solon Test , applied to a quantile regression, found returns ranging from 7% to 17% for secondary school graduates (across the entire income range) whilst a university degree produced returns between 17% and 27%.
