Using Panel Data to Estimate the Effect of the North American Free Trade Agreement on Employment and Wages at the State Level
I determine the effect of NAFTA on employment and wages in the United States. I use a panel-data set of 50 states for 1980-2000, and a two-stage least squares, fixed effects model. I estimate equations for employment and wages. Empirical results indicate that NAFTA had a negative effect on employment and a positive effect on wages. Chow Test results suggest that there is a break in both the employment and wage relationships in 1994, the year NAFTA became effective.
