Description
 
This study examines how randomized variation from the Vietnam draft lottery affects the next generationäó»s labor market. Using the universe of federal tax returns, the authors link fathers from draft cohorts to their sons and offer two primary findings. First, sons of men called by the lottery have lower earnings and labor force participation than their peers. Second, they are more likely to volunteer for military service themselves. Similar but smaller effects are uncovered for daughters. Findings demonstrate that manipulating parentsäó» circumstances can alter childrenäó»s later-life outcomes and, more specifically, are consistent with two separately operating channels: (1) parental inputs as important determinants of human capital development and (2) intergenerational transmission of occupation. Tables. This is a print on demand report.
