Individual heterogeneity in returns to education in urban China during 1995-2002
This paper analyzes the individual-level differences in returns to education in urban China from 1995 to 2002. We have uncovered substantial heterogeneity in schooling coefficients, and we find that the extent of heterogeneity diminishes over time.
