近日，我院助理教授唐曲的合作论文“The unintended impacts of agricultural fires: Human capital in China”（合作者：Joshua Graff Zivin, Tong Liu, Yingquan Song, Peng Zhang) 被发展经济学顶级期刊Journal of Development Economics 接受发表。
The practice of burning agricultural waste is ubiquitous around the world, yet the external human capital costs from those fires have been underexplored. Using data from the National College Entrance Examination (NCEE) and agricultural fires in China from 2005 to 2011, this paper investigates the impacts of fires on cognitive performance. We find that a one-standard-deviation increase in the difference between upwind and downwind fires during the exam decreases the total exam score by 1.42 percent of a standard deviation (or 0.6 points), and further decreases the probability of getting into first-tier universities by 0.51 percent of a standard deviation.
