interpreting the indirect effect

Post by Luca Tiberti » Thu May 30, 2019 12:45 pm

Hi Ronelle and colleagues, thanks again for your very interesting paper!

Just a note of caution: during the presentation you said - unless I am wrong - that teenage childbearing affects labour market outcome only through "education" which (here is the problem) impacts on labour market outcome. This is a plausible mechanism, but your education variable is certainly endogenous, so you cannot interpret the education coefficient as a causal one.

Thanks, Luca. I have corrected it in the paper, but not yet in the presentation. Thanks for pointing this out!
