We employ a unique combination of Dutch survey and registry data that links math and language skills across generations. We identify the connection between cognitive skills of parents and their children by exploiting within-family between-subject variation in these skills. A causal interpretation of the between-subject estimates is reinforced by novel IV estimation that isolates variation in parent cognitive skills due to teacher and classroom peer quality. The between-subject and IV estimates of the key intergenerational persistence parameter are strikingly similar and close at about 0.1. Finally, we show the strong influence of family skill transmission on children’s choices of STEM fields.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Wiederhold, Simon</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Schwerdt, Guido</dc:creator> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://rightsstatements.org/page/InC/1.0/"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2022-03-23T15:09:16Z</dc:date> <dc:contributor>Jacobs, Babs</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Wiederhold, Simon</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>van der Velden, Rolf</dc:contributor> <dcterms:title>The Intergenerational Transmission of Cognitive Skills : An Investigation of the Causal Impact of Families on Student Outcomes</dcterms:title> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/43613"/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:creator>Vermeulen, Stan</dc:creator> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2022-03-23T15:09:16Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/56963/5/Working_Paper_No_09_2-1812tszi5lk45.pdf"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/46"/> <dc:contributor>Schwerdt, Guido</dc:contributor> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/43613"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/56963"/> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/56963/5/Working_Paper_No_09_2-1812tszi5lk45.pdf"/> <dcterms:issued>2022</dcterms:issued> <dc:contributor>Hanushek, Eric A.</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Vermeulen, Stan</dc:contributor> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/46"/> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:creator>van der Velden, Rolf</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Jacobs, Babs</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Hanushek, Eric A.</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
