Discriminating between comparable economic states and outcomes is the essence of decision-making and policy evaluation. Several existing and new methods for evaluating the impact of different states, such as union status, and outcomes, such as educational outcomes, are examined and explored in this dissertation. Since outcomes and treatment effects are distributed over members of the reference population, I pay particular attention to revealing outcome differences and treatment effects over the entire distributions, as well as summarize the same with mean effects. The substantive issues which are examined in my dissertation are as follows: The impact of unionization on wages and differences in the employees' decisions to unionize which have been enduring questions in labor economics; the effects of time structure of the school on student achievement which has been an overlooked issue in exploring the schooling inputs. My results, not only have important evaluation and policy implications, but also highlight some important econometric issues.Finally, school year length directly affects the amount of time students spend in school, and may impact the curriculum choices of schools. ... For example, the Texas state legislature is currently finalizing legislation that would require all school districts to have a uniform start ... the electricity costs from cooling schools during the month of August, not to mention additional teacher salaries (Strayhorn 2000).
