This article is a revised version of Chapter 1 of my Ph.D. dissertation at Princeton University. I would like to thank my advisor, Alan Krueger, who has always been exceptionally generous with his advice. I am also extremely grateful to Jesse Rothstein for his insights and suggestions. I am particularly indebted to Carlos Bozzoli and Marco Gonzalez-Navarro for their many thoughtful remarks. Thanks also go to the Editor Beata Javorcik and the seminar participants at Princeton University, Universitat d'Alacant, Universitat de les Illes Balears, SAE 2007 Meetings in Granada and Universidad Pablo de Olavide. Special thanks go to an anonymous referee of the Oxford Bulletin of Economics and Statistics whose comments, insights and suggestions made the conceptual framework shorter, clearer and neater. I also want to thank Erik Plug for providing me with the codes used in his previous work. Financial support from the Rafael del Pino Foundation, the Bank of Spain and the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation (ECO2008-05721/ECON) is gratefully acknowledged.
