''Marginal effects in the double selection regression model: an illustration for the wages of women in Spain''
( 2009, Vol. 29 No.2 )
In this article we obtain different marginal effects for continuous variables in the context of a double selection regression model, in which it is assumed that the model's disturbances have a normal distribution. Using data of Spanish women, we illustrate these effects by estimating a double selection regression model for the analysis of the economic return from education in the context of the Mincerian wage equation.
