We estimate doctor value-added and provide evidence on the distribution of physician quality in an entire country, combining rich population-wide register data with random assignment of patients to general practitioners (GPs).
This chapter provides new evidence on educational inequality and reviews the literature on the causes and consequences of unequal education.
