They derive formulae for the predicted correlations among nine different sibling types. They use weighted least squares to choose parameters to fit best the sample correlations to the predicted correlations from the models. One of the key results from this study is that it matters a great deal whether or not one constrains all sibling types reared together to have the same degree of correlation in family (common) environment. 9%. 7 8 The earlier Behrman Taubman and Wales [1975] study used the same data set of twins, but found lower heritability of schooling.
