Jeepers, if only I’d gone to college AND studied statistics!
For females in below-median income families, New Orleans has the lowest causal effect on family income; every additional year spent in New Orleans lowers their incomes by -0.285 (s.e. 0.098) percentiles, a reduction of 0.932%.
In contrast, we find that Salt Lake City, Utah has the highest causal effect on the family incomes of females.
Every year spent growing up in Salt Lake City increases a female child’s income from a below-median income family by 0.234 percentiles, or roughly 0.767%.
I could have told you that without using numbers because I’ve read a book and own a TV!
