The literature on non-cognitive skills is growing fast! In this spreadsheet, I'm maintaining an inventory of public papers (working papers or published papers) analyzing interventions targeting non-cognitive skills in developing countries. Missing a relevant paper? Please email me and I'll add it!
Interventions targeting non-cognitive skills
Top published papers in development economics 2019-2021
I compiled a database of development economics papers published in top journals between October 2019 and October 2021 (published, not forthcoming) in order to analyze funding sources and the prevalence of research of various types (randomized controlled trials and non-randomized controlled trials) and research on different countries. The data and a simple do-file generating some illustrative graphs can be downloaded here. A brief document outlining the methodology I employed can be found here. Quartz published a discussion of the evidence around countries represented in development economics research here.
Literature review on structural transformation
I recently conducted a short literature review focusing on the recent empirical literature on structural transformation in developing countries, linked here.
