  1. Notes: In Panel 1, each cell is based on a separate regression of education on military conscription as specified in Equations (2) and (4) on a sample excluding birth cohort 1958 and including an earlier birth cohort. In Panel 2, each column shows the difference-in-differences estimates of the effect of conscription using the pooled sample of men and women. Standard errors in parentheses: ***p <0.01, **p <0.05.
