Replication data for: The Long-Run Economic Consequences of High-Stakes Examinations: Evidence from Transitory Variation in Pollution

Avraham Ebenstein, Sefi Roth & Victor Lavy
Cognitive performance during high-stakes exams can be affected by random disturbances that, even if transitory, may have permanent consequences. We evaluate this hypothesis among Israeli students who took a series of matriculation exams between 2000 and 2002.
