Nicely expressed. I do a lot of modelling for rather different purposes, and I'm always tugged, as is my discipline generally, between parsimony and what we call 'realistically complex models'. As a life long fox I prefer robust big models, to fragile small ones.

An interesting set of figures, for which many thanks, and relevant to my own country. Clearly there is likely a big selection effect here, as you indicate " some college graduates would have earned higher wages even if they had never gone to college". any thoughts on how big this could be, and on ways of getting at it?
