Out of 157 colleges whose principals had been surveyed in 1999 and 2003 by the New Zealand Council of Educational Research, only 17% reported going through competitors in each years.
This paper develops and empirically exams predictions regarding the general equilibrium results of inter-district choice packages. We look at changes in school district-level demographics and housing values between the 1990 and 2000 Censuses, when twenty-six states adopted these selection packages.

In this paper, we use potential outcomes to outline causal quantities of curiosity in this settings and clarify how normal models just like the autoregressive distributed lag model can produce biased estimates of those quantities as a result of submit-remedy conditioning. We then describe two estimation strategies that keep away from these post-treatment biases—inverse likelihood weighting and structural nested mean models—and show through simulations that they’ll outperform standard approaches in small pattern settings. While social scientists often theorize concerning the enduring effects of previous regime characteristics, conceptual issues and data limitations pose actual challenges for assessing these legacies empirically.
