Coefficients for grades completed in OLS and 2SLS regressions of working in different sectors on grades completed and a birth cohort polynomial. Outcome variables are dummy variables taking value one if the individual works in the respective sector and zero otherwise. 2SLS estimates use reform exposure as instrument. Cns refers to the census data and lfs to the labor force survey. Mean.outc and SD.outc refer to the mean and the standard deviation of the respective outcome.
