  1. Note: Dependent variable: first difference of log nominal wage. Sample period: 2006-2009. Mean wages and reform variables are computed over percentile income intervals based on the 2006 income distribution implied by predicted Mincer wages. The constant is not reported. Robust standard errors are reported within parenthesis. ***: significant at the 1 per cent level; **: significant at the 5 per cent level; *: significant at the 10 per cent level. Weights indicate average group size.
