Two longitudinal data sets are constructed for this paper. The first panel is formed from ENLACE test scores of students who completed primary school (grade 6) in 2007, lower secondary school (grade 9) in 2010, and upper secondary school (grade 12) in 2013. The second panel merges a special module of the Mexican labor survey (ENOE, from the Spanish) applied to individuals ages 18, 19, and 20 years during the third quarter of 2010, with students that sat the ENLACE test in grade 12 in May 2008, 2009, and 2010.
