Abstract

We estimate the strength of schooling externalities for Spanish provinces over the 1995-2010 period. Our empirical work employs both main approaches available in the literature, the Constant Composition Approach and the Mincerian Approach. Using data from the Continuous Sample of Working Records and change in province human capital stock we find that both methodologies yield significant externalities.
