  • Fostering and Measuring Skills: Improving Cognitive and Non-Cognitive Skills to Promote Lifetime Success | Becker-Friedman Institute Research Respository
    recent literature on measuring and fostering cognitive and non cognitive skills IQ tests and achievement tests do not adequately capture non cognitive skills personality traits goals character motivations and preferences that are valued in the labour market in school and in many other domains For many outcomes their predictive power rivals or exceeds that of cognitive skills This paper reviews a variety of interventions targeted to different stages of the life cycle We interpret all of the studies we examine within an economic model of skill development While it is difficult to compare different interventions because they are often multifaceted and target different populations nonetheless four conclusions emerge First the evidence base is larger on the long term effectiveness of interventions that start in early childhood and elementary school compared to their adolescent counter parts second when evaluating skill enhancement programmes it is vital to consider outcomes other than IQ or achievement test scores third the available evidence suggests that the most successful adolescent remediation programmes are not as effective as the most successful early childhood and elementary school programmes although adolescent mentoring and the provision of information can be very effective fourth adolescent remediation is possible for children who

  • Early Health Shocks, Intrahousehold Resource Allocation, and Child Outcomes | Becker-Friedman Institute Research Respository
    open question in the literature is whether families compensate or reinforce the impact of child health shocks Discussions usually focus on one dimension of child investment This paper examines multiple dimensions using household survey data on Chinese child twins whose average age is 11 We find that compared with a twin sibling who did not suffer from negative early health shocks at ages 0 3 the other twin sibling who did suffer negative health shocks received RMB 305 more in terms of health investments but received RMB 182 less in terms of educational investments in the 12 months prior to the survey In terms of financial transfers over all dimensions of investment the family acts as a net equalizer in response to early health shocks for children We estimate a human capital production function and establish that for this sample early health shocks negatively affect child human capital including health education and socioemotional skills Compensating investments in health as measured by BMI reduce the adverse effects of health shocks by 50 but exacerbate the adverse impact of shocks on educational attainment by 30 Authors Junjian Yi The University of Chicago James J Heckman The University of Chicago Junsen Zhang Chinese
