Predict the effect on average log earnings of increasing everybody’s education level by one year. Let the regression be log(earnings) i = β + β 1 × educ i + β 2 × exper i + β 3 × exper 2 i + ε i . For individual i with current level of education educ i and level of experience exper i , the effect of increasing their education level by one year is...
