Our identification strategy rests on the assumption that, conditional on covariates, the sibling sex composition of the two firstborn children in a family is arguably exogenous. With regard to cognitive skills, learning skills and self-control measured in kindergarten, we find that boys benefit from having a sister, while there is no effect for girls. We also find evidence for the effect fading out as early as first grade.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2017-06-23T12:36:56Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/46"/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:contributor>Schwerdt, Guido</dc:contributor> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/46"/> <dc:contributor>Cyron, Laura</dc:contributor> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:creator>Viarengo, Martina</dc:creator> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:creator>Schwerdt, Guido</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Cyron, Laura</dc:creator> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/39359"/> <dc:contributor>Viarengo, Martina</dc:contributor> <dcterms:issued>2017-11-11</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:title>The effect of opposite sex siblings on cognitive and noncognitive skills in early childhood</dcterms:title> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2017-06-23T12:36:56Z</dc:date> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
