• Adjusting for age effects in cross-sectional distributions 

      Almås, Ingvild; Havnes, Tarjei; Mogstad, Magne (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2012)
      Income and wealth differ over the life cycle. In cross-sectional distri- butions of income or wealth, classical inequality measures such as the Gini, could therefore find substantial inequality even if everyone have the ...
    • Baby booming inequality?: demographic change and inequality in Norway, 1967-2004 

      Almås, Ingvild; Havnes, Tarjei; Mogstad, Magne (Discussion paper, Working paper, 2010-02)
      We demonstrate how age-adjusted inequality measures can be used to evaluate whether changes in inequality over time are because of changes in the age structure. In particular, we explore the hypothesis that the substantial ...
    • Baby booming inequality? Demographic change and earnings inequality in Norway, 1967–2000 

      Almås, Ingvild; Havnes, Tarjei; Mogstad, Magne (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2011)
      In this paper, we demonstrate how age-adjusted inequality measures can be used to evaluate whether changes in inequality over time are due to changes in the age-structure. To this end, we use administrative data on ...
    • Incarceration, Recidivism, and Employment 

      Bhuller, Manudeep; Mogstad, Magne; Dahl, Gordon Boyack; Løken, Katrine Vellesen (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Using a random judge design and panel data from Norway, we estimate that imprisonment discourages further criminal behavior, with re-offense probabilities falling by 29 percentage points and criminal charges dropping by ...
    • Incarceration, Recidivism and Employment. 

      Bhuller, Manudeep; Dahl, Gordon B.; Løken, Katrine V.; Mogstad, Magne (DP SAM;14/2018, Working paper, 2018-06)
      Understanding whether, and in what situations, time spent in prison is criminogenic or preventive has proven challenging due to data availability and correlated unobservables. This paper overcomes these challenges in the ...
    • Incarceration Spillovers in Criminal and Family Networks 

      Bhuller, Manudeep; Dahl, Gordon B.; Løken, Katrine V.; Mogstad, Magne (DP SAM;15/2018, Working paper, 2018-08)
      Using quasi-random assignment of criminal cases to judges, we estimate large incarceration spillovers in criminal and brother networks. When a defendant is sent to prison, there are 51 and 32 percentage point reductions ...
    • Life-cycle bias and the returns to schooling in current and lifetime earnings 

      Bhuller, Manudeep; Mogstad, Magne; Salvanes, Kjell Gunnar (Discussion paper, Working paper, 2011-02)
    • Life cycle earnings, education premiums and internal rates of return 

      Bhuller, Manudeep; Mogstad, Magne; Salvanes, Kjell Gunnar (Discussion paper;24/2014, Working paper, 2014-06)
      What do the education premiums look like over the life cycle? What is the impact of schooling on lifetime earnings? How does the internal rate of return compare with opportunity cost of funds? To what extent do progressive ...
    • Older or wealthier?: the impact of age adjustment on cross-sectional inequality measures 

      Almås, Ingvild; Mogstad, Magne (Discussion paper, Working paper, 2010-03)
      Differences in individual wealth holdings are widely viewed as a driving force of economic inequality. However, as this finding relies on cross-section data, a concern is that one confuses older with wealthier. We propose ...
