dc.description.abstractThe perpetual inventory method used for the construction of education data per country leadsto systematic measurement error. This paper analyses the effect of this measurement erroron GDP regressions. There is a systematic difference in the education level between censusdata and observations constructed from enrolment data. We discuss a methodology forcorrecting the measurement error. The standard attenuation bias suggests that using thesecorrected data would lead to a higher coefficient. Our regressions reveal the opposite. Wediscuss why the measurement error yields an overestimation. Our analysis contributes to anexplanation of the difference between regressions based on 5 and on 10 year firstdifferences.en_US
