dc.description.abstractAn individual?s human capital has a strong influence on earnings. Yet individual, worker-levelestimations of earnings rarely include the characteristics of co-workers or detailed firm-levelcontrols. In this paper, we use a unique matched worker?workplace dataset to estimate theeffect on own earnings of co-workers? education. Our results, using the 1998 UK WorkplaceEmployee Relations Survey, show significant effects. Own earnings premia fall slightly, butthere is an independent, significantly positive effect from average workplace education. Wealso test for interactions between own and co-worker education levels. However, theseinteractions appear negative: education is valued less highly at workplaces where educationlevels are already high. This result runs counter to our theoretical prediction.en_US
